Reviews for Creamy Pork Potpie
"This was a nice way to use up leftover pork roast. I added aromatics and spices because on its face, the recipe is bland. I used lima beans instead of cauliflower & broccoli. It was good but a little soupier, so just keep that in mind if you use vegetables that aren't as bulky. I suspect it's excellent with broccoli & cauliflower."
"Delicious and easy to make"
"Great way to use leftover pork roast! Was very good, we both had seconds! I also used homemade pie crust instead of the puff pastry. I halved the recipe, just for Hubby and me, put it in a square 9x9 baking dish, just rolled the crust into a square, then laid it on the top of the Pork mixture,"
"Loved the ease of the recipe but I always find I need to add something to it to elevate it to the next level. I added 2 Tbls. butter , sauted an onion diced and cooked til tender along with a a clove of minced garlic first to the directions and then continued with the original recipe. I also peeled and chopped a medium sized granny smith apple which I sauted to crisp tender then added the pork and other veggies to the contents and followed the recipe from there."
"This is a quick and easy recipe. Will make this again."
"I didn't want to pay $5 for puff pastry, so used a pie plate and topped it with a pie crust instead. This was absolutely amazing! My boyfriend even says he wants it again. I think, like other reviewers have noted, it would be easy to change up a little with chicken and/or different veggies for variety.One note: I found the recipe as written very, very salty. Make sure you use low-sodium chicken broth. Next time I will probably use less seasoned salt as well."
"Really great pot pie! I browned potatoes in a skillet and added tons of veggies- carrots, celery, corn, peas, green beans, broccoli, zucchini and squash. I also replaced the breaded part with torn appart biscuit dough. Really good!!"
"This was delicious. While I didn't follow the recipe exactly, I was very pleased. I added onion and diced potatoes (store bought in the refrigerator section) and it was very filling."
"This was delicious! I made it exactly as written, except substituted chicken for the pork. This recipe is definately a keeper!"
"Doubled the recipe and made it for company and they are still raving about it!!!"
"What a great way to use up leftover pork! I had quite a bit of pork roast left over and thought this recipe might be a good way to put it to use and boy was it ever. Everyone loved it!"
"Loved this! My husband wants this again..and again...and again."
"This was very good and very easy. I used a packet of the Steam Freash veggies that already have cheese in them, plus the cheese that it called for. My kids loved it. For once no one complained."
"I made it with the frozen, cooked, diced chicken. This made things VERY easy and quick. I also used carrots, corn, and green bean blend. Very versatile and yummy."
"Hi! Just wanted to say thanks for this recipe. I did substitute chicken, and it was great. Living overseas in an area where I can't find cream soups, I am really appreciative of a recipe like this one. :) Debbie"
"This recipe rocks! The whole family loved it!"
"Loved it. Could easily be adapted as a side by leaving out the meat and doubling the veggies. chicken would be great too."
"The preparation was very easy and came out, suprisingly, better than I thought. The whole family love it!"
