Make A Beef Pot Pie With Leftover Steak For A Simple Weeknight Meal
Repurposing leftovers into something new can be a weeknight dinner savior. If you have leftover steak, vegetables, and premade pie crust, you can turn them into a tasty pot pie.
Chuck roast is particularly great for this dish because of its excellent marbling and melt-in-your-mouth texture. However, any cut of beef you have in the fridge should work.
Depending on how you like your pot pie, use one or two sheets of packaged pie dough. You can make both a top and bottom crust, or just put one layer of crust over the top.
If you want to make your own pie crust, it will require more time. You’ll have to rest it in the fridge, and the blind bake the bottom crust if you choose to make one.
For the gravy, all you'll need is a beef stock thickened with a little roux and flavored with herbs and aromatics. Combine the mixture with the beef and leftover or fresh veggies.
Assemble the pie, apply an egg or milk wash on the top crust, and poke holes in the top so steam can escape. Bake at 450 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes and dinner is served.
