Tasty Moose Pie

On average, for a northern Aboriginal hunter, no kill could feed as many people as a moose (though a large bison could feed more). Amazing animals, moose can plunge to the bottom of lakes and remain there feeding for up to a full minute before bursting to the surface with fresh greens dangling from their mouth.

Sift together flour, baking powder and first amount of salt in bowl. Cut in shortening. Add mashed potato and mix to form a dough. Chill dough in refrigerator as you prepare meat. Coat meat strips in olive oil and season with remaining salt and pepper. Roll up moose strips and place in large casserole dish. Add water. Cook, uncovered, in 300°F (150°C) oven for 1 hour. Roll dough out flat and place it over meat. Return casserole dish to oven and cook for another 20 minutes, until crust is golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Serves 6.
