Why is it called a “pot pie”?

Pot pie gets its name from its assembly process. A pot pie is a pie made by lining the inner surface of a pot with pastry and filling it with meat and vegetables.

What’s the difference between a meat pie and a pot pie?

A meat pie generally has a filling that is thicker and consists mostly of meat. A pot pie has a thinner filling and contains more vegetables. Also, meat pies generally have both a top and bottom crust, whereas pot pies usually only have a top crust.

What kind of beef should I use for beef pot pie?

In this recipe, I used beef chuck steak, but you could substitute with sirloin steak or even ground beef!

What is a “dry” red wine?

A dry red wine is any red wine that is not sweet. I like Merlot, Pinot Noir, or Cabernet Sauvignon. You can also use red cooking wine, which can be found in the oil and vinegar aisle of the grocery store.

Can I make individual beef pot pies?

Yes! To make individual pot pies, use ramekins. Cut out circles of crust to fit your vessels, and fill with an appropriate amount of filling before topping with the circle of crust to fit. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until 165°F internally.

Pot Pie Substitutions

  • Use shallots instead of onions for a sweeter taste.
  • Use an equal amount of low sodium beef broth or water in place of the red wine.
  • Use a mixture of your favorite fresh or frozen vegetables, such as mushrooms, pearl onions, broccoli florets, or corn.
