Beef Pie

    2 hours

    This is a rich beef pie packed with vegetables and cubes of beef that I like to serve whole in the centre of the table then let people help themselves.

    Made as per recipe and loved it. Beautiful flavour  -  06 Aug 2013


    It is a little time consuming but it was worth it. I believe the previous person used phyllo dough instead of puff pastry. I used the puff pastry and I also added 1/2 cup beef broth. Then I added 2 tbls butter along with 1/4 cup cream. Gave it a richer flavor. Thanks  -  13 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is really very good - with a flavor that's suprisingly complex for a pot pie. I was looking for a way to use up some leftover steak and this definitely fit the bill. I took the advice of the previous reviewers and added about half a can of beef broth with the wine, then thickened the liquid with cornstarch right before baking. Will definitely make this one again!  -  20 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
