Let’s dive into this delightful recipe that’s bound to become a seasonal favorite!

Ingredients:

For the Pot Roast Filling:

  • 1 lb beef chuck roast
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots (add after beef is cooked)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp worsheshire sauce
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil for searing
  • 2 tbsp butter (for reducing liquid later on)
  • 2 tbsp flour (for reducing liquid later on)

For the Pie Crust:

  • 1 Pillsbury pie crust (premade)
  • 1 egg for egg wash

Instructions:

  1. Sear the Beef:
  • In instant pot, heat the olive oil until hot. Season the beef chunks then sear them until golden brown on all sides. Remove and set aside.
  1. Sauté Aromatics:
  • In the same pot, add the chopped onions and garlic as well as tomato paste. Sauté until softened and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.
  1. Simmer and Braise:
  • Return the seared beef to the pot. Add in the remainder of ingredients. Pour in the beef broth and bring to a low simmer. Cover the instant pot and cook on high pressure for 60 minutes, natural release.
  • Once meat is done, remove and shred and set aside
  • Strain liquid and reserve 2 cups
  1. Assemble the Pot Pie:
  • Once the pot roast is done, remove from the instant pot. If the sauce is too thin, you can reduce it on saute mode for a few minutes.
  • In a cast iron skillet, add butter and melt until frothy then add flour
  • Once flour and butter are combined, add reserved liquid, stirring constantly until smooth
  • Add beef to the pot as well as carrots and peas
  • Combine well then add pie crust to the top
  • Finish with egg wash if desired for extra golden crust
  • Preheat your oven to 375°F. Roll out the chilled pie crust into a circle large enough to cover your skillet.
  1. Bake to Golden Perfection:
  • Cut a few slits in the crust to allow steam to escape. Place the pot back in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  1. Serve and Enjoy:
  • Allow the pot pie to cool for a few minutes before serving. Ladle generous portions onto plates, making sure each serving has a perfect balance of tender beef, hearty vegetables, and flaky crust.
Yield: 4-6 servings

    This was the most delicious pot pie I have ever made. I had enough to make two pies and we are already done with the first one. Very flavorful and will be making this recipe very very soon. Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe! It was soooo good, especially as the temperatures have dipped.
