Quick Beef Pot Pies!

One thing my family loves is pies of any kind, whether filled with a delicious sweet filling or a savory one.

This is the way I whip up a super fast Beef Pie, individually wrapped in flaky dough for each member of the family and filled with leftover beef stew. OR.....you can also use your favorite canned stew, like Dinty Moore or one of the others.

I had some leftover stew in the fridge and a box of pie pastry which I needed to use up, so this became dinner.

Quick Beef Pot Pies!

1 package Pillsbury ready-made pie dough (2 crusts)
Leftover stew


Divide each pie roll in half....spoon about 1/2 cup of stew (just eyeball if you need more or less) into the middle, pinch dough together all around the seams to close well.

Make a slit in the middle and place on a baking sheet.

Bake at 425 degrees for about 25 minutes or until pastry is nice and brown. You will have some of the gravy overflowing and running out of the pie crust but that is just fine. As a matter of fact, we LOVE it that way.

Enjoy!


Other fillings to try:

  • Leftover chicken stew
  • Curry Pie (brown some ground beef with a little bit of finely chopped onion, garlic, salt and pepper and a teaspoon of curry powder) - SO SO GOOD

  2. I have a question, If you don't have leftover beef stew how could you make this quickly? My dear fiancee doesn't like stew or soup, so I never make them but I believe he would love this!
