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

    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (15 ounces) refrigerated beef roast au jus
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper

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.
  • Unroll 1 pie crust; cut in half. Layer 1/4 cup shredded cheese and about 1/3 cup beef mixture over each crust half to within 1/2 in. of edge. Fold crusts over filling; press edges with a fork to seal. Place on a greased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining crust and filling.

    This was very easy to make, and was quite tasty. I didn't prepare the queso dip, which made parts of it quite dry (though it was still good), so I'll make sure the have queso on hand for next time! I like how this could be made with leftover beef roast, or with prepared roast (like Hormel's, etc.) Tip: let your pie crusts warm a bit out of the refrigerator before unrolling. It makes it easier to unroll without breaking.
