Tasty Meat Pie

I work full time as a nurse, so I depend on quick and easy meals like this one. My sister suggested I use canned soups instead of prepared gravy. Now my husband and teenage son ask for seconds and even thirds. —Cheryl Cattane, Lapeer, Michigan

    My pie came out very dry and without as much flavor as I had hoped for. If we fix again, will add more liquid, and probably less potato.

    This was very yummy. I let it cook all together until the potatoes were tender and served it over biscuits. It was a hit.

    This is not a meat pie. It's a lot of ingredients and soup tossed together with a pie crust on top like a pot-pie. My family makes 'Meat Pie" and it's like a Welsh pasti. It has a top and bottom crust; 2-3 pound fresh top round steak cut into 1" pieces; 4-5 fresh russet potatoes also cut into 1" pieces and a chopped brown or large yellow onion. Mix in 1 1/2 cups water with Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and marinate all ingredients in a large bowl while you make the pie crust. Goes nicely in a 13 X 9 glass pan. Dot with butter before you place on the top crust; cut about 5 - 6 vents in top crust. Bake 15 minutes in the microwave till internal temp is 135 degrees (that way the potatoes are cooked) then bake in a 350 oven for 45 minutes to brown the top and finish cooking. Cool left overs on the counter top for the night or it will sour if put in the fridge after dinner and you can just toss out the great leftovers. So - put it in the fridge the next morning and not before Now that is a real meat pie.

    why is there not a crust on the bottom of the pie. Doesn't it spill all over when serving without one? I'm going to make this is a little while but will be putting a bottom crust on it.

    I taught my Webelos scouts how to make this and then we invited their Families over for dinner. It was a big hit! We made 6 large pies and not any of it was left over. The boys were very proud of their accomplishment. I did notice that my name brand Beef Barley with Vegetable Soup was rather "dry". It looked like the barley had soaked up the liquid in the can so I added a half of a soup can of water to it and it came out just fine. On other occasions the same soup brand has been "wet" enough to not need the extra water. I guess it has something to do with the day the soup was processed on.

    I used Cream of Mushroom/Chicken soup in place of the Golden Mushroom and I added more veggies and potatoes. Our new favorite!!! Very tasty and just as good as left overs. I already have this added to my routation of easy meals!
