Total TimePrep: 1-1/2 hours Bake: 30 min. + standing
- 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 pound boneless beef round steak, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 cup dry red wine
- 2 cups beef broth, divided
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

- 2 medium potatoes, cubed
- 3 large carrots, peeled and sliced
- 1/2 cup frozen peas
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
- 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 1 large egg, beaten
- In a large resealable container, combine 3 tablespoons flour, salt and pepper. Add beef in batches; shake to coat. Invert a 10-in. ovenproof skillet onto parchment; trace circle around pan 1/4 in. larger than rim. Cut out circle and set aside. In same skillet, saute beef in oil until browned. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until onion is tender. Add wine, stirring to loosen browned bits.
- Combine 1-1/2 cups broth, tomato paste, Italian seasoning and basil; stir into skillet. Add bay leaf. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until meat is tender, about 45 minutes. Add potatoes and carrots; cook until vegetables are tender, 20-25 minutes longer.
- Meanwhile, roll out puff pastry to fit skillet using parchment circle as a guide; cut venting slits in pastry. Keep chilled until ready to use.
- Combine the remaining flour and broth until smooth; gradually stir into skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Discard bay leaf. Stir in peas and parsley.
- Brush beaten egg around edge of skillet to help pastry adhere; carefully place pastry over filling. Using a fork, press pastry firmly onto rim of pan; brush with egg. Bake pie at 425° until pastry is dark golden brown, 30-35 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
