Beef Pot Pie

I should have taken a picture of this when it came out of the oven, but I didn’t think about it until after.  But…this is my beef pot pie I made from scratch last night (mostly).  Here is the recipe:

Filling:

9 oz of steak (I used venison), cut into bit size pieces

1/2 of an onion, minced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables

2 potatoes, peeled and diced

12 cups of beef broth (I made my own)

4 gravy packets

In a soup pan, bring the broth to a boil.  Add mixed veggies and potatoes and bring back to a boil.  Meanwhile, in a nonstick skillet, brown meat, onions and garlic.  When the broth mixture comes back to a boil, add cooked meat, garlic and onions, and gravy packets and mix.  Cook another 10-15 minutes.  I added some flour/water mixture to thicken it up more.  You want that mixture to be thick like a stew.  Also, just a warning, this always makes more than enough for one pie.  I actually only used a third of this mixture for my pie, and froze the rest in 2 separate containers.

Once the mixture is cooled down some, put it in a pie crust and bake.  You can make your own pie crust, or use a premade crust you purchase at the grocery.  For me, it’s just easier to purchase one.

Bake at 450 degrees for 35 minutes or until golden brown.

Keep Simply Delighting!
