This Beef Pot Pie Recipe is pure comfort food.

The recipe is very old and mom made this with leftover pot roast for another meal.

You can use any kind of fresh leftover meat using this basic pot pie recipe..

The pot pie can have any kinds of vegetables you like in it and has layers of pastry crust with a delicious creamy gravy that are the characteristics.

The kids absolutely love this meal when I make it and it can also feed a large family inexpensively.

What's a better way to use up leftover roast beef other than making a beef pot pie for dinner its, the perfect way for repurposing leftovers.

Here are two versions to make pot pies, from scratch and the easy way out both delicious and perfect comfort foods.


  • 3 cups beef roast leftovers (or you can use beef sauteed with garlic in oil, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning)
  • ( I usually have leftovers and have used chicken, turkey, or venison if not a beef lover)
  • 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 cooked potatoes ( microwave them first so they are cooked)
  • 1 1/2 cups of beef gravy homemade, bottled, 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 the crust.
  • Crust:
  • 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 a line pie plate.
  • Brush bottom of crust with 1 tablespoon butter.
  • Homemade gravy or use Beef Gravy store-bought:
  • 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, a pinch of pepper, and salt
  • 1/4 cup of Marsala wine optional, 8 ounces of sliced mushrooms


  1. Gravy Instructions:
  2. Pour beef juices into a small saucepan and add an equal amount of flour to the juices. 
  3. Mix them together well. 
  4. Then turn on a very low heat and stir constantly so the gravy doesn't burn. 
  5. Continue stirring and cooking this mixture until it turns brown and starts to bubble a little. 
  6. The flour needs to be cooked properly, otherwise, your gravy will taste raw.
  7. Remove the flour mixture from the heat and very slowly add the beef stock in small amounts.
  8.  I add everything to a food processor to make a smooth gravy. 
  9. Then put back on the heat. 
  10. Don't leave your gravy unattended. 
  11. Continue stirring until it reaches the thickness you desire and then serve immediately or use for pot pie.
  12. Assembly:
  13. Line oil sprayed deep casserole dish with rolled out dough. 
  14. Place chunks of meat and mixed vegetables on top of the crust. 
  15. Pour gravy, on top of meat and potato/vegetable mixture. 
  16. Place another piece of rolled dough to fit over the top. Brush with melted butter. 
  17. Bake at 400 till brown and bubbly around 45 minutes to an hour.
