I was straining my brain trying to think of something to fix for supper with not a lot of stuff in the house. Suddenly, I had an epiphany, and the choir of angels sang the great Alleluia! This is quick, easy, and mostly painless to prepare. I hope you enjoy it, too!

How To Make semi-homemade beef pot pie

  • 1
    Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    Set out pie crusts and allow to come to room temperature, at least 15-20 minutes (longer is better).
  • 3
    Prepare 9- or 10-inch pie plate by spraying with non-stick spray.
  • 4
    Drain soup, reserving broth in a medium-sized saucepan.
  • 5
    Remove 1/2 cup soup broth, and whisk together with 1/4 cup flour. It may be lumpy, but it's okay.
  • 6
    Warm broth in saucepan until it begins steaming. S-L-O-W-L-Y whisk in flour/broth mixture. Once broth is smooth, continue heating on medium heat until it thickens. Once the mixture reaches a gravy consistency, remove from heat.
  • 7
    Unroll first pie crust to fill bottom of pie plate, being careful to press along sides and bottom. Add soup contents (meat & vegetables reserved from soup).
  • 8
    Add 1/2 cup of thickened broth. You may add salt and pepper to taste.
  • 9
    Cover with remaining pie crust, folding edges down, and either flute the edges or flatten crust to rim of pie plate.
  • 10
    Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Increase temperature to 425°F, and bake an additional 20 minutes, or until pie crust is golden brown.
  • 11
    Once removed from oven, let pot pie set for 10 minutes to allow juices to solidify so the broth won't all run out once the pot pie is cut.
  • 12
    While pot pie is resting, pour remaining broth/gravy into 1-quart freezer bag and freeze for future use. This can be used as a starter to make beef stew.

    Enjoy! I hope you like it as much as my husband and I!
