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

"This recipe was excellent! I loved the thick gravy sauce that the beef was cooked in and my picky no-vegetable eater even cleared his plate this time!! Fairly easy and I had all of the ingredients on hand. My one small complaint is that it seemed like it took a long time to make, so prepare/plan ahead a little bit."

"It was good, but would be better if it was between two crusts."

"Actually I used this recipe as an inspiration--I made my own beef stew recipe and then put my favorite pie crust recipe on top. Then I baked it as written in this recipe. The crust was a nice finishing touch to the beef stew. I will definitely use this recipe again."

"I recently made this on a cold, cold day and it was such a big, warming hit that I'm sure I will make it again soon. I like the previous reviewer's idea of making turnovers to freeze -- I will try that!"
