Personal Steak Pot Pies | #SundaySupper

Steak Pot Pie is such a classic comfort food, that is oh, so good!

Personal Steak Pot Pies

 

This week the Sunday Supper team got creative with a new theme. The challenge? “We’ve Got You Covered.” Immediately I thought of a pot pie “covered” with flaky crust. Yum!

To begin, slice an onion very thin. Toss those in a large skillet with 2 tablespoons of butter and sauté them until they are golden.

Meanwhile cut a pound of round steak into small slices that are about 1/4 inch thick. I cut the steak into about 1 1/2 inch wide strips, then slice them up.

In a dish, combine 1/4 c flour, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp ginger and 1/4 tsp allspice. Stir those together.

When the onions are done, scoop them into a dish and set them aside.

Place the meat in a plastic bag.

Add in the flour mixture.

Close the bag tight, and shake like crazy to coat the meat with the seasoning.

In the same skillet that you sautéed the onions, heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium high heat. Toss in the meat.

Cook until the meat is nice and browned.

Pour in 2 1/4 cups hot water, 2 Tb red wine and 2 Tb Worcestershire sauce. Bring it to a boil, cover and reduce the heat to a simmer and let it cook for 40 minutes.

When it is almost done, peel and dice three medium russet potatoes into 1/2 inch pieces.

Toss the potatoes in and cook for 10 more minutes.

After the potatoes have cooked, preheat your oven to 450 degrees.

Stir in 1 cup of frozen mixed veggies or frozen peas. I make them both ways, and choose whichever I have handy. Turn off the heat.

You will need 6, 4 inch ramekins. To top your pies, you’ll need about the amount of pie crust dough that you would for two standard pies. Divide the dough into 6 portions.

Beat and egg with a tablespoon of water until frothy.

DSC_0211_edited-1

Ladle the filling into the ramekins, dividing it evenly between all six. Top the filling with the sautéed onions.

DSC_0214_edited-1

Brush the edges of the ramekin with the egg wash.

DSC_0215_edited-1

Top with a crust and press the edges against the sides. You can trim them neatly if you like, but we love to nibble on the extra crust. Cut a slit in the center with a sharp knife.

DSC_0216_edited-1

Brush the top with the egg wash. Repeat with all of the pies.

DSC_0217

Place them all on a baking sheet.

DSC_0218_edited-1

Bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until golden.

DSC_0220_edited-1

Allow them to cool 5-10 minutes.

Optional Pie Crust Recipe – this is my go-to pie crust that I use for pretty much everything.

Pie Crust
 
Making this dough in a food processor is quick and simple, and turns out every time I make it.
Serves: Dough for 2 standard pie crusts, or one double crust pie
Ingredients
  • 2¼ c all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 c (2 sticks) very cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 7-9 teaspoons ice cold water
Instructions
  1. Combine the flour and salt in a food processor. Add in the cold butter. Pulse the food processor until the butter is broken up and the mixture is crumbly. I generally pulse it three times with about 4 second pulses. Turn on the food processor and drizzle in the water. Add just enough water to make a crumbly dough. If you add enough water for the dough to come together into a ball, you will have dough that is way too wet, and will be tough.
  2. Separate the dough and form into two disks. Wrap them in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes before using.
Notes
For a pie that calls for a baked pie crust, use one dough disk, roll it out and form the crust in the pie plate. Poke the crust all over with a fork. Chill while you preheat your oven to 475 degrees. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool and use as needed.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Psalm 91:4

    Your crust does indeed look flaky and fantastic, Conni! I can see how your steak pot pies would be a perfect waker-upper after a bone-chilling wintry day =)
