Pub-Style Beef Pot Pies Ingredients
The ingredients are simple and reminiscent of a pub-style meatloaf… with a few additions.
You can make your own crust, or go easy on yourself and pie refrigerated store-bought crusts.
Gather these ingredients:
Medium onion, a clove of garlic, and frozen mixed vegetables.
Worcestershire Sauce, ketchup, fresh parsley, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes
All-purpose flour and brown sugar
Nine-inch refrigerated pie crusts, lean ground beef (or you can substitute ground pork or turkey), cooked bacon, and two eggs.
How to Make Easy Beef Pot Pies
This dish is exceedingly easy to make. It does require a few steps, but it doesn’t take long! In fact, there is no sauteeing ahead of time, and very little chopping of veggies involved.
The meat filling is not pre-cooked, it’s simply assembled and then scooped into the pastry.
Begin by coating a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray and preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Set that aside for the moment.
Assemble the filling:
In a large bowl, combine the beef, onion, garlic, mixed vegetables, chopped cooked bacon, flour, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup and 1 egg. Mix to combine, much like a meatloaf.
Cut the Pie Crusts:
Unroll the refrigerated pie crusts and cut twelve 4-inch circles for the bottom of the muffin tin. Re-roll scraps as necessary. Then cut twelve 2-inch circles for the top of each beef pot pie.
Fill the Pot Pies:
Line each muffin tin with a 4-inch dough circle. Then divide the filling evenly among the 12 cups. This usually takes about 2 tablespoons per cup. Top with pie with a 2-inch dough circle.
Prepare for Baking:
With the tines of a fork, prick each dough circle top and brush with the second beaten egg for a golden brown finish.
Baking the Beef Pot Pies:
Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool a few minutes before removing the pies from the tin.
