What is a Petit Pot Pie? 

A petit pot pie is a type of meat pastry, or simply put, a meat pie, that consists of a type of meat and some vegetables, encased in flaky and buttery pastry. The petit means that these pot pies are mini size– this makes them perfect as appetizers, or served as a main meal with some mashed potatoes, beans, and salad.  

This pot pie consists of a beef and veggie mixture, consisting of beef goulash, white onion, carrot, garlic, olive oil, turmeric, and brown sugar. The meat and veg mixture is made by frying the beef in a pot until browned. The beef is set aside and the onions, carrots, and garlic are fried in the pot and cooked until caramelized. Flour is then used to thicken the mixture, and the meat is placed back in the pot, along with the beer and beef stock. This mixture is left to simmer for 2 hours in order to create a thicker sauce for the pie filling. For the pie itself, a buttery puff pastry is used, and egg is reserved to brush over it and create a glaze. Once assembled, the pies themselves only take 20 minutes to bake in the oven.  

A Balanced Meal 

This dish does not only consist of the petit pot pies, but it also features mashed potato and green beans which are friend in a pan. This dish contributes to a healthy mix of protein from the meat, carbohydrates from the pastry and the mashed potato, and vegetables from the green beans. If you are looking to keep the meal as healthy as possible, use less butter in the mashed potatoes, or just enjoy the dish in moderation.
