Don’t let the Individual Beef Pot Pies name fool you! Each one of these mini pot pies is hearty enough to share, but that is your call! They are loaded with tender beef and full of vegetables and flavor! For a full pan of a beef pot pie, try my Beef Pot Pie Casserole.
Individual Beef Pot Pies
Just like my Individual Chicken Pot Pies, these beef pot pies look cute and mini, but they are bursting with flavor and big enough to feed a couple of people (if you feel like sharing). I love that I get to use my beautiful blue ramekins for this recipe. Ramekins, little ceramic bowls, are not just for desserts! Plus, they come in so many colors nowadays that it is fun to mix and match. (Although I am partial to my blue ones).

How to Make Individual Beef Pot Pies
The first thing you need to prepare is the beef and vegetable mixture that pot pies are known for! While doing this, preheat the oven to 375°F. Begin by browning the beef in a large skillet. Be sure to season it with salt and pepper before you brown it! Set the beef aside while you mix together the rest of the ingredients. In the same skillet, melt the butter and whisk in the flour. Next, add the beef broth, milk, bouillon, salt, pepper, and oregano. Stir this for about 5 minutes as it thickens. Mix in the beef and the rest of the ingredients and let that simmer for about 10 minutes. This is a perfect time to get out your ramekins and prepare the pies!
How to Make the Pies
Be sure to grease the ramekins that you are using for the Individual Beef Pot Pies. Take your pie crusts and cut two circles, one a little bigger than the other, for each pot pie. The larger pie crust circle will line the ramekin and hold in the beef mixture. The smaller pie crust you cut will be the top of the pie–the piece that traps all those pieces of beef and vegetables you just worked so hard to prepare! Vent each pie by cutting a few vents into the top crust. Then, brush the egg wash over each pie and bake for about 15 minutes. You could also brush on melted butter to get that golden brown top. Either way, the pies will look as wonderful as they taste! No side is needed for this comfort food, but a light dessert like my Oreo Fluff would be a perfect ending to this comforting dinner.
