Saturday, December 31, 2016

Here is what you do with leftover prime rib! What better way to use up leftover prime rib than using this tender meat in a pot pie? This one is done with left over prime rib with a beef Marsala sauce. It over the top amazing! I will give you easy step by step instructions for making this from scratch or semi homemade. Comfort food at it's finest hour! It so easy and repurposing leftover prime rib is over the top delicious!

There are many comfort foods I can think of right off the top of my head but nothing compares to a great leftover prime rib pot pie. The flaky crust, gravy, vegetables and meat that goes into that pie is outstanding. 

The best part about a homemade pot pie is you can make it the way you like it. You can put any vegetables you like in it.

One thing are planning what vegetables to put in it if there are no leftovers.  My family won't eat certain vegetables. What's great about a pot pie is you can hide them! 

 I love  to hide peas in mine and have no problem with them. They've never figured it out when I put them in there. The pie is so delicious they never care! The family would prefer corn over peas or even green beans substituted. 

I am sure many of you go through the same thing. Look at the recipe as a guide line.

 I personally feel onion makes the pie too overpowering with onion flavors. If there is any leftover pot pie, that's all you taste is onion. Doesn't matter what I like, if you love onions put them in.

Quite a few vegetable go great in a pot pie. I love mushrooms and broccoli. That would be another pot pie I would make just for me. I have had that many times with leftover chicken or turkey it's so good!

Whenever I have a refrigerator full of leftovers I usually use them up in a pot pie. Most of the time the ingredients are leftovers from Holiday.

This one happened to be A New Years dinner. I had so much meat leftover, this was quite a treat. If you have leftover roast beef or even a pot roast, this is the recipe to make with leftovers. You won't be sorry!

If you have ever been a big fan of pot pie, you will never buy them again. Homemade is over the top comfort food. Nothing compares. It's honestly so easy to make. Even if you don't want to make everything from scratch go ahead and buy the pie crust. 

You could also use canned or bottled gravy. I won't tell! The main thing is this is all natural no preservatives, you know exactly what's in it, and you can make it tailored to your taste!

When I first made a pot pie, I was so excited to see how fantastic it came out, that bubbly sauce, the browned pastry crust and what was inside was exactly what I like the best more meat less vegetables.

That's the beauty in making your own. If you don't want a ton of peas or carrots you can leave them out!

I love any kind of pot pie so if you're not looking for a Prime Rib or Beef pot pie, substitute chicken, turkey or whatever you prefer. You then just need to use the coordinating gravy and whatever vegetables you like.

I always use potatoes in mine but your can leave them out if you don't like potatoes and add more of what you love the most.

If you do happen to buy store bought pie crust, make sure you baste the top with melted butter so you can that delicious buttery golden brown crispy crust. It also will seal it nicely. 

Almost every pot pie I ever make has three things, pea, carrots and potatoes with the meat.

I like to stay away from the overpowering flavors. During the winter months pot pies are a staple in my house.

Is this too big for two? Try making individual ones in cupcake tins! You can make a bunch of them and freeze them. Of course they freeze well, that's where we find pot pie in the supermarket,  in the freezer section right? ! 

Hopefully I gave you lots of suggestions you can take advantage of by making one of this pot pies, whether it's semi homemade or from scratch you will love it!

Leftover Prime, or other Beef Pot Pie


  • Leftover Prime, or other Beef Any Beef Roast pieces around 3 cups
    2 1/2  cups assorted vegetable suggestions: carrots, pea's mushrooms, corn,  or other leftover vegetables you may have on hand
    One or more cups cubed potatoes
    1 1/2 cups of beef gravy homemade or canned gravy mixed with 1/4 cup of marsala wine
    pastry for a two crust pie
    heavy cream or milk, and butter, to brush on top of crust

    Mom's pie crust recipe:

    2 cups flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt mix together with flour
    2/3 cups shortening cut into the flour then add
    4 1/2 tablespoons ice water
    Mix till dough forms a ball...Roll out on floured board two 9 inch crust and line pie plate.
    Brush bottom of crust with 1 tablespoon butter.

    Homemade gravy:
    2 tablespoons beef fat and juices
    2 tablespoons flour
    1 cup beef stock (omit 1/4 cup beef stock if using Marsala)
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, pinch of pepper and salt
    1/4 cup of Marsala optional


  1. Pour beef juices into a small saucepan and add an equal amount of flour to the juices. Mix them together well. Then turn on a very low heat and stir constantly so the gravy doesn't burn. You need to continue stirring and cooking this mixture until it turns brown and starts to bubble a little. The flour needs to be cooked properly, otherwise your gravy will taste raw.

    Remove the flour mixture from the heat and very slowly add the beef stock in small amounts. I add everything to a food processor to make a smooth gravy. Then put back on heat.  Don't leave your gravy unattended. Continue stirring until it reaches the thickness you desire and then serve immediately or use for pot pie.
    Line pie plate with rolled out dough. Place chunks of meat and mixed vegetables on top of crust. Pour gravy mixed with marsala,  on top of meat and vegetable mixture. Place another piece of rolled dough to fit  over the top. Brush with melted butter. Bake at 400 till brown and bubbly around 45 minutes to an hour. Serve.
