More About This Recipe
  • We rarely eat beef in my house anymore. But when I decided to work on an easy pot pie recipe, I just wanted it to be beef … truthfully, in a preparation like this, I would take beef over poultry anyday.

    So, my Homemade Beef Pot Pie started with the beef. Actually, sirloin steak, to be precise. Yes, I could have used a less expensive cut, but I find that when you use the best meat you can, the result is better.

    The sauce for the beef is a quick homemade version. It’s just a few basic ingredients – a subtle amount of red wine, a little punch of garlic and a bit of cornstarch to thicken the sauce as it cooks. Don’t forget to taste it and adjust the salt and pepper as needed.

    Just FYI – Once you’ve made the super easy sauce, the hardest part is over. Next comes adding the veggies – frozen mixed veggies, actually – which cook as the pot pie bakes. As for the topping? It’s crescent roll dough, which makes a bready top that's perfect for sopping up the delicious pot pie juices.

    Ultimately, this homemade recipe can be made in an hour or less. Fast. Easy. Simple. Not bad for any night at all!
