Variations Ideas

  • Stew Meat – This pot pie recipe is made with diced up stew meat. You can but it at the store already diced or your can dice up the meat on your own. Make sure it is about the same size.
  • Vegetables – I usually frozen vegetables with peas and carrots. But you can also add in fresh vegetables. The addition of tomato paste, corn and mushrooms is a great addition.
  • Seasoning – Feel free to change the seasoning to what you prefer. The addition of a teaspoon of oregano, Worcestershire Sauce, or soy sauce adds a delicious variation.
  • Biscuits – We love the ease of making this with canned biscuits, but you can also use puff pastry. If using puff pastry, place the beef mixture in a pie dish and bake in the oven with puff pastry on top. We like to top with a egg wash and cut slits to cook the crust golden brown texture and a flaky crust.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1 – Add all the ingredients except for the cornstarch, water and biscuits to the crock pot.
  • Step 2 – Cook the meat mixture on low for 8 hours in the crockpot.
  • Step 3 – About 1 hour before cooking mix together your cornstarch and water in a small bowl.
  • Step 4 – Stir into the crock pot to thicken the sauce.
  • Step 5 – Cook the biscuits based on the package instructions and serve over each bowl. The biscuits serve as the “pie crust” and make this so easy but just as delicious. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Tips

  • Chopped Vegetables – When prepare for this recipe, you can use frozen vegetables or fresh veggies. If using fresh we recommend chopping the veggies about the same size so they cook evenly.
  • Thicken Sauce – This pot pie has a thicker consistency because of the cornstarch slurry that is added.

Serving Suggestions

We serve a biscuit on top of each bowl. It is delicious! Just use canned biscuits to keep it simple and easy. We have even used crescent rolls before. If you have extra time, you can make our easy homemade biscuits. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Store Leftovers

Store leftover in an airtight container in the refrigerator. If stored properly the beef stew will last about 4-5 days. I like to keep the biscuits and pot pie mixture separately for best results

Can I Make Ahead of Time?

Yes, you can easily make this pot pie recipe ahead of time. You can easily prepare on the weekends and then reheat when ready to serve. This makes for a quick and easy weeknight meal.

How to Freeze

Place the beef pot pie mixture in a freezer safe container and freeze for up to 3 months.

How to Reheat

When ready to serve, you can thaw the pot pie mixture overnight in the fridge. Then reheat on the stovetop over medium-high heat or in the microwave. If you mixture is still frozen, place in the slow cooker and it will easily reheat. Make sure to stir occasionally to make sure it thoroughly reheats.

    Does the stew meat need to be precooked or do you add it in raw and let it cook in the crock pot?

    Yes, that’s correct. Thank you!

    Is it supposed to be 1 hour before serving when adding the cornstarch?
