For years, I would travel to the frozen food department, buy those cute little boxes that contained pot pies.
One pie per person, in beef, chicken, and turkey.
Being able to microwave these pot pies made them perfect for weeknight dinners.
However, really reading the contents of pot pies in the boxes, I noted a lot of sodium and unattractive additives.
More of a natural kind of gal, I decided there had to be a better way.
Roast Beef & Pot Pie
Rather than cook down beef, or buy some gristly cheap cut of beef, I buy lunchmeat.
Roast beef at the deli is easy to use and already cooked.
Additionally, I can see if there is a large line of fat or marble that I don’t want and ask for a different brand.
Also, I can control the amount of meat needed, and not overbuy.
No wasting necessary when it comes to ingredients.
Last, I can choose from low sodium lunch meat which is another great option and I can buy it a few days ahead.
Frozen Mixed Veggies For Your Yummy Beef Pot Pie
Did you ever notice that inside of a beef pot pie there were often veggies you would pick out?
No need for that.
Choose frozen veggies that suit you.
Maybe buy a bag of frozen peas, or corn or carrots.
Purchase a bag of mixed veggies that contain your favorites.
Make your yummy beef pot pie with the things you most want in it and eliminate the others!
Don’t forget to try different kinds of soups from cream of mushroom to cheddar cheese!
