Left-Over Pot Pie

Have leftover steak, chicken, stewing beef or roast? Toss it into a pie!

This is one of my favorite ways to use leftovers. I had a fridge full that I thought I might have to throw out - steak, baked potatoes, corn, carrots, peas ... then I realized I had the makings for this:

Hmm. It's not very photogenic, but it sure tastes GREAT!

2 cups        diced, cooked meat (chicken, beef or pork)
1/2 cup       cooked peas
1/2 cup       cooked, diced carrots
1/2 cup       cooked, diced potatoes
1/4 cup       margarine or butter
1/4 cup       chopped onion
1/4 cup       flour
1-1/2 cup    chicken broth
1/2 cup       milk
1/4 tsp        salt
1/4 tsp        pepper
1 tsp           thyme (I omit this one)
       pie crust

  • Combine cooked meat and veggies. Set aside
  • Sauté onion in margarine until clear. Whisk in flour.
  • Whisk in milk and broth - slowly. Bring to a boil
  • Reduce heat and simmer until thickened.
  • Pour over meat and veggie mixture. Stir. 
  • If preparing for freezer, cool completely.
  • Line pie plate with pie crust, pour in filling. Top with crust, crimp edges.
  • Bake at 375F for 1 hour.
