Very nice. I added bacon to the browning chuck steak cubes and used store bought puff pastry. I used beef stock instead of red wine and frozen veg. Before I added the pastry lid, I covered the meat mixture with a layer of tasty cheddar cheese slices. My hubby loves steak, bacon and cheese pie. Because I added the bacon it was a lot saltier and next time I will use salt-reduced stock.-30 Jun 2006

We made 10 pies' worth of this recipe for a big group. It was very easy, but I found it somewhat bland. I would also at least double the meat:vegetable ratio if I was going to make it again.-10 Feb 2007
Simply DELICIOUS, good comfort food! I used beef broth in place of the red wine and frozen veggies instead of canned. I LOVED IT! This will definitely be a favorite! Thanks!-26 Jun 2006
Easy Beef Pot Pie
There's something so comforting about a pot pie, especially this Easy Beef Pot Pie. Maybe it's the golden brown crust, maybe it's the rich gravy with chunks of beef and vegetables? Or, maybe that it's ready to serve in less than an hour? A shortcut to make it even quicker- cook the potato in the microwave- if you use a thin-skinned potato (like Yukon gold) you won't even have to peel it! Condensed golden mushroom soup brings the flavors of beef stock and mushroom to the gravy as it simmers with the browned sirloin. Top with refrigerated pie crust and bake. Easy Beef Pot Pie is a simple dish that you'll feel good about serving!

Easy Traditional Cottage Pie Welcome to The Storied Recipe! I host a unique podcast where every guest gives me a recipe that’s significant to their culture, life, and memories. I make, photograph, and share the recipe with you. I invite you to listen to Anita’s Story as you make her dad’s Traditional Cottage Pie. I’ve always avoided Shepherd’s Pie or Cottage Pie recipes because I (ignorantly, mistakenly) equated them to Pot Pies. I mistakenly believed traditional Cottage Pie had… pie crust. Of course, as I’m sure you know, I was wrong. And once I realized that Cottage Pie doesn’t have a pie crust…. I also realized that this is a SUPER easy recipe.
Here’s what my podcast guest, Anita, had to say about this traditional Cottage Pie:
This is *the* dish of my childhood. My dad made so many wonderful recipes, but if I had to choose just one that reminded me of him the most, it would have to be his Shepherd’s Pie. The act of chopping the veggies and getting everything in order to make this dish reminds me of him so much. I watched him and helped him countless times. It took me some time to be able to cook this again after he died. Who knew carrot peels and onion skins could conjure up such nostalgia and sentiment?
For me, personally…
Because I never made Cottage Pie before Anita shared this recipe, this dish will always remind me of Anita and this beautiful Father’s Day episode where we embraced the humanity and complicated nature of our parents, grief, and holidays.
And as a recipe, my family gave it an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10. The meat, vegetable, and gravy mixture is so robust and flavorful – it’s just utterly satisfying. Meanwhile, the mashed potatoes on top are creamy and rich and full of herby, garlicky hints. In the oven, a crust forms over the top of the mashed potatoes. There’s nothing like the feeling of that spoon breaking through the buttery crush and falling down into the potatoes and meat. Every single bite is perfectly balanced.
Btw, why is Anita calling it Shepherd’s Pie while I’m calling it Cottage Pie?
Yeah, good question. As Anita explains in her interview, Shepherd’s Pie traditionally contains lamb while Anita’s version contains ground beef. Technically, the ground beef version is known as Cottage Pie.
So what’s this secret ingredient?
Another thing I love about Anita’s recipe is that it reflects her father’s laid back, adventurous approach to cooking. As you’ll see, this recipe is not a dictator. Anita is full of options for substitutions and encourages you to omit ingredients without feeling stress or anxiety.
The one ingredient I wouldn’t skip, personally? COFFEE!
Anita’s father generally added a little coffee to the broth or gravy of hearty meats like beef, lamb, or rabbit. This was a first for me, and I loved the full, dark flavor it added to the meat mixture. Anita’s dad also recommended adding wine or beer. I chose a dark, stout beer and was perfectly pleased with that choice also!!
Can I Make These Ground Beef Empanadas Ahead of Time?
Of course! You can whip up huge or tiny batches and freeze them for later. Just be sure that you DO NOT bake these empanadas before you freeze them!
Prepare the dough, wrap it around your preferred fillings, and put them into the freezer on a cookie sheet. Once frozen solid, transfer them to a freezer safe container.
Most pastry dough will last up to three months in your freezer, and my empanada recipe is no exception! Don&rsquot forget to attach a little piece of tape to the container with the date, so they don&rsquot grow too icy.
With that in mind, also remember to properly thaw them out before baking. Soggy isn&rsquot fun!

Epic Chunky Beef and Mushroom Pie
Fall apart, ultra tender chunks of beef, bursts of fresh mushroom smothered in the most incredible gravy and topped with flaky, golden puff pastry. My friends, this is not just another beef pie. This is an EPIC Chunky Beef and Mushroom Pie with a little secret ingredient that takes this to the next level!
This is the sort of food that makes me do the happy dance. Literally. I took a massive spoonful and was jumping up and down with glee. It was everything I had hoped it would be, and more.
Non foodies will find it hard to understand the elation you feel when you make something that is this good. I mean, gravy even in its most basic form (and anything you smother in gravy) is fantastic.
But with this Chunky Beef and Mushroom Pie, with just one bite, you know it’s a step up from the usual pie. You may not be able to put your finger on it, but you know there’s something different about it – just better.
This is the secret ingredient – Dried Porcini Mushrooms. Just a tiny amount adds a punch of savouriness and earthiness – in posh foodie language, it adds umami.
Gourmet ingredient? Yes. But:
a) you don’t need much, just 20g/0.7 oz and the soaking liquid forms part of the braising liquid and
b) ALDI SPECIAL BUY *** ALDI SPECIAL BUY *** ALDI SPECIAL BUY.
About 5 years ago, back when I was in corporate, a group of my colleagues were talking animatedly about the ALDI Special Buys for that week (which, from memory, was ski gear at insanely good prices). There they were, a group of professionals, all dressed up in suits and heels and I couldn’t believe that they were so excited about it that they lined up at ALDI just to get the deal!!
I had clearly missed the ALDI train. I am now a firm regular on the ALDI train.
Nowadays, whenever one of my foodie friends come across an awesome ALDI deal, we send out a group text. “OMG. Luv-a-Duck only $12. ” “I found lobster tails at ALDI. LOBSTER TAILS. ” “Bargain Bonds at ALDI, OMG, I got stacks!!” (OK, the last one is not food, but yes it has happened. Or maybe it was Calvin Klein, I can’t remember.)
(And yes, there are always lots of caps and exclamation marks).
And this weeks’ ALDI Special Buys including things that are right up my alley – GOURMET COOKING INGREDIENTS! Truffles, gold leaf gelatine, Dutch Cocoa (bakers, take note!), and one of my favourite secret ingredients: dried porcini mushrooms. <3
Dried Porcini Mushrooms are like a secret weapon stock. And I used it to make this Chunky Beef and Mushroom Pie because it makes the most incredible gravy sauce ever.
Topped with some flaky, golden puff pastry (yes, I know it looks crazy yellow but that’s how it comes out if you brush with egg yolk)……and that moment when you break through that pastry to reveal the tender, fall apart beef and the smell of that savoury extra-tasty-gravy….
Well, let’s just say you should prepare to swoon.
Or do as I did. Do a happy dance! – Nagi xx
1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Season the beef with salt and pepper and toss with 2 tbsp flour until evenly coated.
2. Heat the oil in a large ovenproof heavy-based pan over high heat.
3. Add beef in batches and cook for about five minutes per batch, until well browned, then remove. Add more oil if pan dries out.
4. Add the onion with a pinch of salt and cook over low heat for about five minutes, until softened.
5. Add the tomato paste and 1 tbsp flour and cook out for a minute or so. Add the red wine and stock, and stir until the mixture boils.
6. Return the beef to the pan, cover the pan with foil, place in the oven and cook for two hours, or until tender, then stir through the peas and mint. Allow to cool, then chill in the fridge until cold (warm filling will ruin the pastry).
7. When the beef filling is ready, heat the oven to 180°C.
8. Divide the pie filling among four 300ml ramekins or pie dishes. Top each with a piece of pastry large enough to hang over the edge of each dish (it is important to remove the pastry from the freezer only 5-10 minutes before you need it, so it thaws but stays chilled).
9. Press the pastry down firmly around the edges of the dishes and brush evenly with the egg yolk. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 40 minutes, until puffed and golden.
In England, the birthplace of this hearty dish, shepherd's pie is most often made with a ground lamb filling. In the States, it's more common to use ground beef. Both are delicious, and lamb can easily be subbed into this recipe.
Can I make this ahead of time?
Yep! You can make the mashed potato topping and the filling up to 2 days in advance, but we recommend waiting to assemble until right before baking.
Is there a low-carb version?
Yep! Check out our Cauliflower Shepherd's Pie for a spud-less version.
How long do leftovers keep?
Kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator, leftovers will keep 3 to 5 days. Large portions can be reheated in a 350° oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until warm.
