Deep Dish Ground Beef Pot Pie

"Kind of like beef stew crossed with a pot-pie. Easy to make and it was sooooo good! Can be made in 4 individual ramekins or in one large casserole for convenience."

Ready In:
1hr 25mins
2 cups




  • Heat oven to 425 degrees. Spray 4 (2-cup) ovenproof bowls with cooking spray; place bowls on cookie sheet (line sheet with aluminum foil for easy cleanup).
  • Brown beef and onion in a large deep skillet over medium heat until done. When done, drain and return to pan.
  • Add in the teaspoons of basil, garlic powder and oregano. Then mix in the potatoes, frozen vegetables, tomatoes, gravy, salt/pepper and Worcestershire.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the potatoes are almost tender. Stir often to prevent sticking. (The potatoes will absorb and neutralize some of the spices, so taste-test and add in more salt/pepper as needed).
  • Meanwhile, unroll the pie crusts and cut circles slightly larger than the openings on the bowls. Also cut slits in the crust to allow steam to escape.
  • When meat mixture is ready, spoon into the individual bowls and top with the little pie crust circles. Brush the pie crusts with the egg whites. If desired, you can then sprinkle extra herb on top. (Parsley/Basil/Italian Seasoning/Oregano - Something green is pretty).
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes until crusts are golden brown.
  • *If you won’t be eating them all at once, simply cover the meat mixture and put in the refrigerator. Then when you are ready, put the pie crust on the bowl, brush with the egg white and bake until it is heated through and the crust is brown. Perfect to make on a Sunday and eat during the week!
  • *To make one large pie, spoon the mixture into a 2 quart casserole dish. Cover with the uncut pie crust. Bake at 425 degrees for 30-35 minutes until golden brown.

  1. I just made this for my husband and three year old tonight and they both loved it. Super easy to make. I didn't have gravy, so used Cream of Mushroom soup and also I didn't add the potatos. It was very flavorful. Thanks for sharing the recipe.


I am not new to the kitchen. I've loved cooking ever since I was just tall enough to see into the pots on the stove. I used to cook dinner for my family when I came home from school so that the food would be ready when my parents got off of work. I work with the American Red Cross, which I've been with for 9 years either as a volunteer, part time or full time. Oh, and I hate doing the dishes!
