An Easy Way To Use Thanksgiving Leftovers

Dec 2, 2015

If you know me, you know I love PRE Beef! I was so excited to put together this beef pot pie recipe for you guys and use so many of our Thanksgiving leftovers. I don’t know about you but I find myself with so many leftover sides and veggies after the holidays. I love to try to make what I can from scratch for big holidays but then end up with so many things I wouldn’t routinely use at home like a pastry beef pot pie

I thought the individual beef pot pie would be a great way to use the Thanksgiving leftovers pastry shells and our extra veggies without indulging too much. Traditionally pot pie’s are not the best for you but I tried to make this more of a healthy stew and only top the stew with a flaky crust to limit the calories and fat. I tend to only like the crispy flaky top of a pot pie anyhow and Trevor didn’t seem to miss it!

The stew is fairly easy but does take some time and attention to get started and then is easy as pie. It was perfect to serve for dinner individually and I packed the excess stew aside to keep for leftovers.

PRE Beef was first introduced to me at the Randolph Street Market in the spring and once I brought it home and cooked it for Trevor I was hooked. It’s hard to find quality beef that tastes tender hence why I rarely cooked it at home. This organic grass fed beef is perfect in its individual packaging and always tastes restaurant fresh.

I highly recommend it and have gotten tons of my friends hooked on it since the Spring! Let me know how you like it and if you try out this recipe at home!
