I always make this pot pie with the left over gravy from my blade pot roast (Kittencal's Beef Pot Roast #2) if I don't have 2 cups I add in some consomme or beef broth to make up the 2 cups, but you can use any leftover gravy recipe or just use canned consomme or beef broth, but I have to say it's much better using gravy --- this can also be made using a double pastry but I don't bother with that it's just as good, and easier using just one pastry top --- make certain to simmer all the sauce with the cooked beef on top of the stove for about 15-20 minutes, this will improve and intensify the filling mixture --- do not season with salt until just before ready to transfer into the pie dish or casserole, trust me the beef filling is so good you may find that you will have it half eaten before you even get a chance to bake it in the crust and it's also wonderful topped on baked puff pastry shells too --- please do not omit the potatoes and carrots, they add so much to this pot pie --- you will love this!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 unbaked pie pastry (large enough to fit a 10-inch deep-dish pie plate or to fit top of a small casserole dish)
- 1/3 cup butter
- 2 large onions, chopped
- 2 medium celery ribs, coarsely chopped
- 3 large garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 teaspoon dried chili pepper flakes, add them in for heat (optional)
- 2 teaspoons dried thyme (rubbed between fingers to release flavors)
- 1/4 cup flour
- 2 cups leftover beef gravy (or use 2 cups beef consomme or beef broth)
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce (use only if using beef broth)
- 3 cups cooked beef, cut into small cubes (use leftover steak or roast, can use more or less)
- 4 small potatoes, peeled (cut into 1/2-inch cubes, or a bit larger, can use less potatoes)
- 2 carrots, peeled (cut into about 1/4-inch cubes or a little larger)
- 1 (10 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, well drained
- salt & freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
- 1Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- 2Prepare a 10-inch deep-dish pie plate or use a medium casserole dish.
- 3In a small saucepan cook the cubed potatoes and diced carrots together in boiling water with a teaspoon of salt until the potatoes are JUST until fork-tender (about 6-8 minutes) they should cook at the same time, don't worry if the carrots are a bit more firmer (do not overcook the potatoes) drain and set a side.
- 4Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add in onion, celery, dried chili flakes (if using) saute until soft (about 3-4 minutes).
- 5Add in garlic and cook 2 minutes.

- 7Stir in flour, then whisk for 1 minute.

- 11Add in the cooked potatoes and carrots; mix to combine.
- 12Season with salt if needed.
- 13Pour the mixture into deep-dish pie plate or casserole dish.
- 14Top with pie pastry, leaving about 1-1/2 inches all around the dish.
- 15Flute the ends of the pastry all around the dish, then cut a couple of slits on top to let steam escape.
- 16Place on a baking sheet to catch any spills.
- 17Bake for about 40-45 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly and the pastry is browned.
