I love that you cook everything in the cast iron pan + then bake the crust on top in the same pan. Fewer dishes is always nice. My husband thanks me too!
My Favorite One Pan Beef + Leek Pot Pie
1 lb. ground beef (I used Five Mary's)
3 medium carrots, small diced
1/2 medium yellow onion, small diced
1 celery stalk, small diced
1 leek, cleaned + diced
2 1/2 cups yukon baby potatoes, small diced
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 heaping tablespoon thyme
1 heaping tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon tapioca or arrowroot flour (or regular flour)
1 can full fat coconut milk
16 oz. high quality beef bone broth (I used Five Mary's)
1 small bunch fresh parsley, chopped
1 prepared (store bought) pie crust
1 egg, mixed
flake salt, to garnish
Preheat your oven to 425F.
In an oven proof large pan with sides or a cast iron pan, cook the ground beef on medium heat. Using a a wooden spoon to slightly break up the meat into smaller pieces. When half way cooked, add in the carrots, onion, celery + leeks. Mix to combine + cook until the onion starts to soften + the ground beef is cooked through.
Add in the potatoes, garlic, salt, pepper, thyme + tomato paste. Mix to combine + cook for 1 minute. Sprinkle in the tapioca flour + cook for another minute. Stir in the coconut milk + bone broth. Turn the heat to low + cook for 6-8 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Stirring occasionally.
Turn the heat off + place the prepared pie crust directly over the pan in the center so that it reaches to the sides of the pan. Make 3-4 small cuts into the top of the crust so that steam can be released. Brush the top with the egg wash.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the crust is cooked + nicely browned. Remove from the oven + sprinkle with flake salt if desired.
Serve + Enjoy!
