Following my previous recipe BEEF STEW WITH VEGETABLES. You can find it on my post below
I wanted to make the most of my beef stew leftover. So I decided to make pot pies. This is basically the thickened beef stew with puff pastry crust on top.
When you prepared your beef stew with vegetable following my step by step recipe. You can make the pot pies and cook right away or make them ahead. I refrigerated mine allowing it to thicken so I am able to remove the excess oily fat.
Reheat the beef stew on low heat till they are reasonably worm. Switch your oven on 300 degrees and start preparing your puff pastry.
-375 g ready rolled light puff pasty
Step 1. Gently unfold a sheet of ready rolled light puff pastry. Dust plain flower on a clean level surface. Roll the pastry if necessary determine on the size of the bowls. (I used two round oven dish 15cm x 6cm deep).
Step 3. After cutting the pie crusts and shapes. Move them to a tray fitted with wax paper.
Step 5. With leftovers of pastry. Using your two hands roll the pastry to a long string and make a border round the top lip of the bowl. This will give it a good seal and prevent outflow while cooking. Cover the bowl with cling film.
