I have been making Chicken Pot Pie for years, but this was my first Beef Pot Pie. And, it is absolutely delicious. My husband said ‘this is like eating a roast beef meal’. I will definitely making it again.

If you are not a pie crust maker, I challenge you to give it a try. It need not be intimidating. But, if you don’t want to make your crust, just buy them! Who cares?

I love making my pot pie in my Fiesta casserole dish. I have two of these and they are almost always in use. They are deep and heavy and hold the heat so well. But just use whatever casserole dish you have. You will be glad you tried this recipe. I will put a link at the bottom of this recipe for my casserole dish.
