Beef Stew Pie

 Beef Stew Pie
This tastes just like beef stew in a pie crust! My daughter and I serve it to our families often, and everyone loves it. The pie is especially good made the day before so the flavors can blend. I sometimes double the recipe so we're sure to have leftovers. —Karol Sprague Gobles, Michigan
