Beef and Mushroom Pie

Beef and mushroom pie is a classic dish that is perfect for a cozy family dinner or a get-together with friends. This hearty and flavorful pie is a crowd-pleaser that combines tender beef, earthy mushrooms, and a rich gravy, all wrapped up in a flaky crust.

I remember the first time I made a beef and mushroom pie. It was a cold winter day, and I was craving something warm and comforting. I had some beef and mushrooms in the fridge, so I decided to make a pie. It turned out to be one of the best dishes I've ever made. Since then, I've made this recipe many times, and it's always a hit.


  • 1 lb beef chuck, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 store-bought pie crust
  • 1 egg, beaten

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large skillet, heat some oil over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until browned on all sides. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add the onions and garlic and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the mushrooms and cook until they release their juices and start to brown, about 10 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir to coat.
  6. Add the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer.
  7. Add the beef back to the skillet and stir to combine with the gravy.
  8. Transfer the beef mixture to a 9-inch pie dish.
  9. Roll out the pie crust and place it over the top of the pie dish. Trim the edges and crimp to seal.
  10. Brush the top of the crust with the beaten egg.
  11. Cut a few slits in the top of the crust to allow steam to escape.
  12. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.

Serving Suggestions

This beef and mushroom pie is best served hot out of the oven with a side of mashed potatoes or roasted vegetables. It's perfect for a family dinner or a cozy night in with friends. This dish can also be made ahead of time and reheated in the oven for an easy weeknight meal.
