Beef Mince Pie | My Husband's Favorite | Jennifer L. Scott



Today, I'm sharing one of my husband's favorite meat pie recipes: beef mince pie. This is a hearty and delicious dish. It's really easy to make and can have many variations.





Beef Mince Pie
1 Tbs olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 1lb ground beef
1 Tbs flour
1 beef bouillon cube
1 can stewed tomatoes
2 cups peeled potatoes, cooked and chopped
2 cups peas, carrots and potatoes (all cooked)
2 sheets puff pastry
1 egg white


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Brown ground beef in a pan with chopped onion and oil. Drain. Add to the pain the flour and bouillon and cook for one minute. Add the stewed tomatoes, peas, carrots and potatoes. Make sure your veggies are already cooked before adding them in, especially the potatoes. Canned potatoes actually work well in this recipe if you are in a pinch for time. Mix until the sauce is thickened. Add the beef mixture to a pie pan lined with puff pastry. Cover the top with the second sheet of puff pastry. Seal and trim the edges of the pie crust. Brush with egg white. Put slits in the top of the pie to vent. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown. Enjoy!

**Please note: I forgot to add worcester sauce. That makes a wonderful addition. You could add 1Tbs.

Comment of the Week
Nicole writes, "Hello Jennifer!
It is quite rare for me to comment on blogs I follow. However, I felt the need and desire to let you know how happy I am that I found you!

My sister gave her nine bridesmaids your "Lessons From Madame Chic" book as part of a wedding gift almost four years ago. Sometime after, I started the book and didn't get past the first or second chapter. Not a reflection of your writing but one of my distracted self! And the book has been on display in my house since I married two years ago.

She recently bought the book forms herself, read it and decluttered her house. In her words she 'felt like a new woman"! Her husband is always asking her if she does something different if she learned it from you!

After being sick and forced to stay in bed, I decided it was time to read the book. After starting it, I couldn't put it down. After finishing it within a couple of days, I bought the next book.

Before finishing that book, I bought the next one because I wanted have it when I finished the current book! Sometime in between, I found your blog and have been soaking in all of your tutorials. Of course, buying both of your e-courses was imperative as I just couldn't/can't get enough of your content!

It's been a little over a month and your inspiration has changed my home lifestyle! I love your "real"ness and just everything you do!
I told my husband that I wish you had more books!! Anticipating the next!

Congratulations on your fourth child which is also exciting as I'm expecting my first!

Thank you, Jennifer for all of your hard work and love for home life!

Best wishes!

Nicole"

Jennifer, what a delicious looking pie! I think you forgot to post the “potatoes” in the written ingredients, but seeing it in the video is a good reminder. We saw the idea of using puff pastry in a peach pie we had in Florence, Colorado last year. Don’t know that we will ever return to regular pie crust! I’m having lunch with a friend this week and have purchased your Madame Chic book for her. I just know she will be thrilled and you will gain a new follower.

Hi Cathy, thank you so much for letting me know I forgot the potatoes in the recipe! I have added them now. I love peach pie. It would be so good with puff pastry! Thank you for gifting my book to your friend. What a sweet idea!

Excited to see the bedroom makeover video! I loved all the meat pies I tasted in England. It seems to be something the Americans have almost forgotten about. I'll have to try this recipe!

Dorothy said...

Thank you for another inspiration for cooking. It looks delicious.

Mystery Reader said...

Hi Jennifer, I enjoy the recipes you post and the accompanying videos. I especially liked the Turkey Lentil Chili from a few months ago and I’m looking forward to trying the meat pie. Would it be possible to list the recipes separately under the label section on your website? I think it would make it easier to find the older recipes there rather than searching You Tube. Just a suggestion.

I'm loving how the subtitles interpret the sound of the sizzling meat as 'applause'! I do feel like applauding this masterful ground beef browning!

This looks so delicious and after seeing the baked mince pie, I "think" the puff pastry is different from a regular pie crust pastry, correct? I ask, because I want to run to the store right now (straight away in your husband's vernacular) and make a turkey mince pie version. Also, just to confirm, you have a combination of peas, carrots AND potatoes and then a separate 2 cups of cooked baby potatoes, as well, it seems, right? I love what you prepare in your kitchen and please keep the recipes coming.
