Individual Beef Pot Pies
Hearty Beef Pot Pies that are filled with tender beef, potatoes, peas, and carrots wrapped in a buttery homemade crust. These aren’t as quick as a Marie Callendar’s Pot Pie, but the flavor will surely impress you. Plus, if you use mini pie tins, these can be made ahead of time and frozen for a quick meal. Beef Pot Pies are also a great option for Saint Patrick’s Day if you aren’t a fan of Corned Beef and Cabbage.
Can these be frozen?
Ah, we love a frozen pot pie. They’re so handy for a quick lunch or dinner. If you’re wanting to freeze your Beef Pot Pies, just make sure you use a mini pie tin rather than a ramekin. Prepare the crust and filling as instructed below. Once the pies are assembled, we recommend placing them in the freezer overnight, uncovered, in a single layer. Then, wrap tightly in Kirkland Foodservice Foil (#1963) and place back in the freezer until ready to bake. When you’re ready to bake, simply follow the instructions below.

Individual Beef Pot Pies
For the filling:
- 2 Tbsp Colavita Blended Canola & Virgin Olive Oil (#2641)
- 1 lb. Main St. Meats Beef Stew Meat (#2607), thawed
- 2 Tbsp Lehi Roller Mills Turkey Brand Bread Flour (#2285)
- 1 cup Flav-R-Pac Chopped Onions (#5772)
- 3 cups Lamb Weston Redskin Salad Diced (#2028)
- 2 cups Simplot Peas and Diced Carrots (#2112)
- 2 cup beef stock (#1041 base)
- 1 tsp Worchestershire sauce
- Regal Coarse Sea Salt (#1147) and AP Coarse Black Pepper (#1028), to taste
For the crust:
- 2 1/2 cups Lehi Roller Mills Turkey Brand Bread Flour (#2285)
- 1 tsp C & H Granulated Sugar (#1632)
- 1 cup Kirkland Salted Sweet Cream Butter (#1723)
- 6-8 tsp ice water
- First, prepare the crust by adding the flour and sugar to a blender. Slowly add the butter, pulsing each time, until there are only pea-sized pieces of butter left. Remove the ice from the water, then add about 1/4 cup to the blender. Pulse, and add water 1 Tbsp at a time as needed. You want it to hold together but still be slightly crumbly. Now, place the dough in the fridge for one hour or overnight.
- Preheat heat oven to 400F.
- Now, add 1 Tbsp of oil to a large pot. Fry the beef until all sides are browned. Stir in the potatoes, onions, peas & carrots, then add the flour and stir to soak any remaining fat and oil. Cook on low for about 3 minutes. Now, add the stock slowly until the sauce becomes thick and lump-free. Stir in Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for an hour and a half.
- Then, divide the dough into 8 pieces; you will need 4 slightly larger to fit into the dish. Roll each piece out, and gently press one dough disk into a ramekin. Add the stew, then place a second, smaller piece of dough on top. Use a fork to crimp the edges to seal. Repeat 3 more times, then cut a slit in the center of each.
- Set the pot pies on a Crestware Cookie Sheet (#4020), then bake for 35 minutes, or until the crust is golden. Let cool before serving.
