How to Make Tender Beef Pot Pie with Thyme & Pepper Pastry


  1. For Pastry:
    In food processor, place flour, butter, salt, thyme and pepper. Mix for a few seconds. Then slowly add ice water, pulsing, til mixture forms into a ball.
    Divide dough in half, wrap each tightly in plastic wrap, and chill in fridge.

    For Filling:
    Place first 9 ingredients into pressure cooker. Place on lid. Heat over medium heat til regulator starts rocking. Adjust heat to a gentle rock, and cook for 15 minutes. Let pressure drop on it's own accord. (*Can also simmer in a pot for 45 minutes *or til tender, if desired to do it that way.)
    Meanwhile, cut up potatoes and carrots and boil til tender, about 10 minutes. Drain. Make 2 cups brown gravy and pour into large bowl. Add potatoes, carrots and rest of vegetables. Carefully open pressure cooker when safe, drain meat and onion, and add to gravy/veggie mixture. Stir in a 1/4 teaspoons each of garlic powder and pepper *or to taste. Roll out 1 ball of chilled pastry to fit a 9" deepdish pie plate and place into dish. Fill with filling mixture. Roll out other ball of dough and cover pie, sealing edges well. *You can do a lattice top, or cut slits to vent in solid top.
    Brush top and edge with milk, sprinkle with pepper and dried thyme. Just a light sprinkling of each.
    Bake in 400ยบ oven for 35-40 minutes. Let cool 20-30 minutes before slicing.
