Venison Steak Pot Pie is a hearty meal with amazing flavors. A double crust pot pie that can be made with beef or venison, vegetables and easy onion gravy. Perfect for those comfort food cravings.
This is the best Steak Pot Pie that I’ve ever had! We added an extra layer of flavor by smoking the meat first. You can also sear your steak in a skillet and have a delicious pot pie or use leftover grilled venison steak. We also love Brisket Pot Pie for a delicious comfort food dinner.
Pot Pie can have a single or a double pastry crust, we went with the double crust and it’s double delicious. I used a pie crust for the base and a puff pastry lattice over the top of the steak and vegetable filling.
Step by Step Instructions
Season thin sliced steaks and smoke over an off set fire for 15- 20 minutes.
Remove from fire and allow to rest 10 minutes before cutting into bite- sized pieces.
Parboil diced potatoes and carrots and drain. Set aside. Prepare the gravy by combining beef broth, onion soup mix and cornstarch. Whisk together and cook over medium- high heat until thickened. Add steak, parboiled vegetables and frozen corn to gravy and mix to combine.
Add pie crust to a large baking dish and pierce with a fork all over, bake for 12-15 minutes. This will keep the bottom crust from getting soggy.
Top with pot pie filling, spreading to edges. Top with puff pastry in a lattice pattern. Brush with egg wash and bake.
We have a plentiful deer population on the ranch and all three of the boys harvested a deer last season. We butcher the deer ourselves making some of the meat into ground venison and some into steaks. Pot pie is a great venison recipe if you have a hunter in the family.
Venison is easy to incorporate into any beef recipe. When using ground venison, I will sometimes combine it with ground beef for the extra fat content, like in this Homemade Salisbury Steak. Likewise, you can always swap beef into a venison recipe if that is what you have on hand.
I was such a picky eater growing up but I always loved pot pie. Homemade Pot Pie is the most amazing comfort food. There are a few steps to making pot pie, but it’s totally worthwhile and your family is sure to love it.
How do I thicken pot pie?
Pot pie filling is a combination of meat, vegetables and gravy. The gravy can be thickened by mixing cornstarch with the broth. Butter and flour can also be made into a roux and then add your broth to thicken the gravy.
What goes with pot pie for dinner?
Pot pie is really a meal in itself with the meat, vegetables and crust. I will sometimes serve this Greek Salad with Roasted Garlic Salad Dressing on the side. Broccoli Pineapple Salad or an easy fruit salad are other great options.
What steak to use for pot pie?
You can use an inexpensive cut of beef steak for pot pie. Sirloin is my favorite and a similar cut of venison works great. Skirt steak or flank steak would also work.
