3 tablespoons cold water
1 pound lean boneless beef stew meat, trimmed of fat and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 teaspoon cooking oil

Stir in onion, celery, carrots, turnip, tomato juice, thyme, salt, pepper, and 1 cup water. Cover and simmer 50–60 minutes or until meat is nearly tender. Combine flour and remaining 2 tablespoons water. Stir into skillet mixture. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in green beans. Spoon into a 1 1/2 -quart casserole. Cover with Pastry; flute edges. Brush with milk. Cut vents for steam. Bake in a 400° oven for 30 minutes or until Pastry is lightly browned and meat and vegetables are tender.
