Easy Beef Pies

We make a lot of French dips and always have leftover roast beef. Here's how I put it to good use. For these pies, use any vegetables you like. They're extra awesome drenched in cheese sauce. —Jennie Weber, Palmer, Alaska

Ingredients

  • 1 package (15 ounces) refrigerated beef roast au jus
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°. Drain beef, reserving 1/4 cup juices; shred meat with 2 forks. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and pepper; cook and stir until tender, 1-2 minutes. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds longer. Remove from heat; stir in beef and reserved juices.
