Steak Filling

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-1/2 lbs top round steak, cut into 1/2-in cubes
  • 1 large yellow onion, finely diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-in cubes
  • 1 large russet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-in cubes
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups beef broth
  • 1/2 cup dark stout beer (or additional beef broth)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme

Cheddar Biscuits

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, grated on box grater and frozen
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Melted butter for brushing, optional


Steak Filling

  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil until shimmery. Add beef, onion, and season with salt and pepper. Saute beef and onion, stirring occasionally until beef is almost no longer pink, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add carrot and potato to beef and let cook an additional 3-5 minutes until vegetables are slightly softened and beef is cooked through. Add garlic and flour and saute 1-2 additional minutes until fragrant.
  • Reduce heat to medium and begin slowly adding beef broth and beer, stirring well until sauce is smooth. Bring sauce to a low simmer and let cook 5-10 minutes until thickened, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove filling from heat and stir in Worcestershire sauce, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste. Pour filling in the bottom of a 9x13 baking pan and set aside.

Cheddar Biscuits

  • Preheat oven to 400F. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut butter into crumbly. Add milk and cheese to flour mixture and stir until a shaggy dough forms.
  • Turn dough onto a surface and very gently knead several times until dough just comes together. Pat dough out to 1-in thickness and use a 2-in biscuit cutter to cut biscuits out (you should have around 8)
  • Arrange biscuits in rows of two over steak filling. Bake pot pie at 400F 20-25 minutes until biscuits are golden brown and filling is bubbly. Brush biscuits with melted butter if desired. Serve hot and enjoy!
