Shepherd’s Beef Pot Pie Recipe

There’s just something about a pot pie that’s ridiculously enticing, am I right? Is it the pie crust, or the ooey-gooey gravy? Whatever it is, I love that it gives you the warm tinglies on the inside when you eat it, particularly on those cold or rainy days when a soup or stew on the menu is warranted. We’re huge fans of chicken pot pie, but we had some fantastic beef brisket left over we needed to use. I had in mind a combination of a beef pot pie with a shepherd’s pie, and I just couldn’t shake it. I had to make it. (I hope you don’t mind my interpretation.)

Preheat oven to 425. Cube your steak and saute in a pan until it’s cooked through.

While steak is cooking, spray the pie plates and lay crusts into them. Poke potatoes with a fork and cook in the microwave until heated through. Let cooked steak cool off before placing into pie crusts. Season steak gently in pie plate.

Cube cooked potatoes and lay into pie plate over steak. You can leave the potatoes cubed, or you can mash the potatoes over top the steak if you’d like more of a mashed potatoey feel (leaning more towards a true shepherd’s pie. Your call.) Season potatoes gently.

Using the same pan with the beef juices, heat up the vegetables while preparing the gravy ingredients in a saucepan. Place heated vegetables over top steak and potatoes in the pie plates. Season vegetables gently in pie plate.

Melt butter into a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add flour to saucepan, whisking until thoroughly combined. Add beef broth and milk, whisking and adding seasoning. Continue to simmer gravy until it’s thickened, about five minutes. Lay gravy over top steak, potatoes, and vegetables.
