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!

    1. I sautéed the beef, potatoes, onions, carrots, celery, and green beans first, just to make sure the potatoes were done. I like the vegetables to have a little tooth. I added some Worchestershire sauce, garlic powder, crushed garlic for added flavor. I cooked the pies for about 30 minutes. All in all, a great recipe, just do your own thing. I didn’t have any turnips or rutabaga, or I would have added those too!

    I made the individual beef pot pies tonight for dinner. Oh my goodness, were they amazing! I was very worried about the potatoes not getting done as it baked for only 15 minutes. Not to worry, mine took a total 35 minutes. I used the convection oven to finish the tops (for the last two minutes).
    A few notes: When I was at the store, Filet Mignon was on sale for the same price as the sirloin. Talk about wow factor, my guests couldn’t stop commenting on the steak or the crust. They were acting like it was Creme Brulee, breaking the top with the back of a spoon. I put them on a baking sheet, to catch the drips (only a few, but I am glad I had it). Perhaps this is why it took so much longer, but the added benefit was the potatoes and carrots got more time to cook. The spices and flavors were spot on. Loved the deep peppery taste.
    Well done! Thank you so much for sharing as it made a small family in Wisconsin very happy. No one even knew it was my first time making pot pies from scratch.
