“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.”
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.

Tip: Leftover beef broth can be frozen for a future use.
