Beef ‘n’ Green Bean Pie

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min.


4-6 servings

This recipe is a family favorite and makes a wonderful Sunday night supper served with a salad.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper, optional
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) cut green beans, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • Paprika


  1. In a large skillet, cook beef, onion and green pepper if desired over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, beans, salt and garlic salt. Simmer for 8 minutes or until heated through.
  2. Meanwhile, separate crescent dough into eight triangles; place in an ungreased 9-in. pie plate with points toward the center. Press onto the bottom and up the sides to form a crust; seal perforations.
  3. In a large bowl, beat egg and 1 cup cheese; spread over crust. Stir 1/2 cup cheese into meat mixture; spoon into crust.
  4. Sprinkle with paprika and remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.

    I have been using this recipe for over 35 years, but I do not put the rolls on the bottom, as it gets soggy. I put them on top so they are crispy. Also do not use an egg or paprika. Use 2 cans of green beans and 4 oz of tomato sauce. Well maybe I haven't been using this recipe for 35 years! But I used the same recipe somewhere and only changed how I put the crescent rolls on :-)

    I made this recipe using a 9x13 nonstick cassarole dish. I doubled the ingrediants to make a larger amount. My husban and step daughter (adult) loved it and she is picky about new recipes. We ate it for lunch the next day just as good. I used extra smoky paprika on the top it gave it a extra flavor. We loved it already bought the ingrediants to make it again.
