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"
"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."
"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."
"Doubled the recipe and made it for company and they are still raving about it!!!"
