  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, brown the pieces of meat on all sides. Pour in some water to almost cover. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer until meat is tender and falls apart easily; about 2 to 3 hours. Transfer meat to a large mixing bowl. Shred the meat slightly and add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. In another 2 quart saucepan over medium heat, pour in beef broth and add carrots and potatoes. Cook until almost tender; about 15 to 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. When the carrots and potatoes are done, transfer to the large mixing bowl with the beef; leaving the liquid in the pan. Combine the peas with the carrots, potatoes and beef.
  4. Dissolve the cornstarch with the 1/3 cup of water. Pour into the saucepan of beef broth, stirring constantly. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat; cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Line a 9 inch pie plate with one of the pie crust following the package directions. Place the beef mixture into the pie crust. Pour the gravy over the top of the mixture, then cover with the other pie crust. Bake in a preheated oven until the crust is golden brown; about 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

My family thought this was just okay. I felt it was a bit bland when made as is. Next time, I will alter to my family's taste. This definately needs more gravy and seasoning.

I am giving this recipe 5 stars even though I didn't follow it exactly. I used stew beef, put that in the bottom of the crock pot. Threw in the salt, pepper and cornstarch, added garlic and on...

This was a hit at my house. I found it easy and excellent. I did cheat though and instead of making the gravy I used 2 packs of brown gravy mix. I assure you this was the right amount of gravy a...

Why do people CONSTANTLY rate their OWN version of these recipes 5 stars?! The entire point is to give feedback to the person who created/posted it. If you're going to change it up then don't ...

This is a good overall recipe. I did make a some changes. First, I added some seasoning (rosemary, sage, white pepper, thyme) to the raw meat before searing (locks in some flavorful juices). ...

I prepared and froze this dish for my 'once-a-month cooking' group--I thawed and cooked my pot pie this evening, and it was great! I made a few changes to the recipe that made it a good bit eas...

Everyone LOVED this pie. Adjustments: I left out the peas and added a can of sliced mushrooms. I used the broth from the simmered meat (yielded one cup)in addition to the can of beef broth. A...

The recipe is good, but I made a couple of changes which made it easier for me. I dredged the meat in flour and seasoning before browning. It made a wonderful gravy which I used to cook the veg...

I used leftover grilled steak-really worth grilling up extra steaks just for this. I like to make many small pies and shove them in the freezer for nights when I can't cook or plain don't feel l...
