I've made several chicken pot pies but this was my first beef one. The recipe called for ground sirloin but I used beef stew chunks instead.
As you can see, my lattice crust wasn't much of a lattice. I just piled them on top of each other. Sorry, I'm not very crafty. :-)
I ended up adding a lot more veggies than called for in this. I sorta took a couple of recipes and tried to make it my own. I LOVED how it was packed with veggies.
The recipe called for 8 oz. of mushrooms as well, we're just not mushroom fans here but I'll bet that would be good!
The bread was quite plain. When I make this again, I will spread just a bit of butter and garlic powder on the breadsticks to flavor them a bit.
We all found this to be delicious!
