“When I fix beef stew, I usually make extra and reheat it another night with a pastry crust on top,” offers Amelia Law of Ardmore, Pennsylvania. “My family looks forward to the beef potpie almost as much as the original stew.”
I took this dish to the last church meal we had, and it was a hit! Several of the ladies requested the recipe. I have to admit it is so easy to make—just put the ingredients in the slow cooker, and dinner’s ready before you know it. The tomatoes with green chilies really add some zip.
No one ever guesses that this traditional combination is low in fat. A thick flavorful sauce makes this hearty dish one that will be requested time and again. I know your family will enjoy it.

Rich and hearty, this stew is my husband's favorite. The beef is incredibly tender. Served with crusty bread, it's an ideal cool-weather meal and perfect for any Irish holiday. —Carrie Karleen, St. Nicolas, Quebec
