These Hearty Beef Pot Pies with Green Beans and Mashed Potato is the perfectly balanced meal for any occasion!

These Cottage-pie-inspired beef pot pies can be broken up into four categories: the filling, the pot pie pastry lids, and then the green beans and mashed potato sides. Start by browning the beef and then fry the onions, carrots and garlic. Make sure that the caramelization really comes through before moving on to the next step. If you’re pressed for time, make sure to start the filling in advance. It will need at least two hours to simmer, so you can even make it the day before and just refrigerate it overnight

We will be using puff pastry as the lid of the beef pot pies. When your filling is good to go, fill your dish up and carefully place the puff pastry as the lid. Make sure to seal the sides and egg wash the pastry. The egg will help that the pastry turns shiny and beautifully brown.

CHEF’S TIP FOR BEEF POT PIE LIDS

When working with puff pastry, make sure it is completely defrosted before attempting to roll it out. This way you will prevent any breaking or cracking in the pastry.

And finally, the green beans and potatoes are the perfect sides to these hearty beef pot pies. The green beans bring that extra crispness by sauteing them in garlic. While the mashed potatoes bring the creaminess. The perfect combination!
