Hearty comforting dishes like Steak and Potato Pie are always a welcome sight on our dinner table. The filling is made with tender perfectly seasoned pieces of sirloin steak that are simmered in a rich sauce that creates its own gravy. Add mushrooms, sweet onion and chunks of golden potatoes then bake wrapped in a double pastry crust until golden. Absolute deliciousness there's just no other way to describe it.
Rich and Hearty Steak and Potato Pie
Steak and potato pie is a main dish that's commonly eaten abroad. My love of meat pies started quite young. while living in South Africa with my family. My Parents were missionaries and I'm incredibly grateful for the opportunity I've had to travel, live abroad and experience other cultures and cuisines. Meat pies were common fare and I was hooked from my first bite as it reminded me so much of a Southern style chicken pot pie. While I've always enjoyed steak and potato pie, I have tasted some versions that were quite bland in flavor due to lack of seasonings. This recipe is my take on meat pie seasoned the way we like it.
Steak and Potato Pie Making Tips
- I recommend that you make the filling for the pie in advance and cool it for the best result. The reason? Doing this allows the filling to reheat gently in the oven and the double pie crust doesn't become soggy. It also allows the gravy time to thicken.
- Can you use it the same day you prepare it? Of course, just allow the filling a little time to cool before assembling the pie.
- I prefer to bake this pie in a cast iron skillet for the even heating and the beautiful way it bakes the bottom crust. You can make this in any similar size pan, if you desire.
- Serve it with a side of steamed vegetables and a salad and it's a carnivore's feast.

WOW! Had some sirloin tips I needed to use and stumbled upon this recipe. It has been deemed "company worthy"! It's a hit and will be enjoyed during those freezing cold Maine winter days. Wouldn't change a thing!
Thanks so much!
I just finished adding the potatoes to the filling. It seems to me that the filling is going to need more salt. That is a lot of meat and potatoes for no salt.
Salt is subjective. If you feel it needs more, add more.
Can this be done in a deep dish glass pie plate instead of cast iron pan?
Yes, you can.
For anyone else curious, the second time I made this I made the filling in the crockpot. I browned the meat first, added everything but the potatoes to the crockpot, and then about halfway through I added the potatoes. Cooked it on high for about 4 hours and it was perfect. Then baked the pie as normal in the oven.
This sounds really good, but I’d like to add peas and carrots to the pie. At what point would you add them? Early , or maybe at the same time as the potatoes?
Add them with the potatoes, yes.
I don’t have a 10 inch skillet but I have a 10 inch pie plate,can I do it in that instead?
If it's a deep dish it should work.
