Family Beef and Mushroom Pie
April 22, 2014
“Can we pleeeeease have a pie for dinner Mum?” This has been a common request from my 6 year old for the last few weeks. I have also been craving meals that are a little more substantial than warm weather salads that have frequenting our Summer dinner table. As the weather cools, salads seem a little less appealing. I have started serving more cooked vegetables with meals.
(Minor issue: I got very excited about my new vegetable garden and have probably/definitely planted more lettuce than is required for this time of year. As a result, the salads will continue here for a couple more months regardless of the weather !)
This beef and mushroom pie was made for my big six year old “Punky”. It is fabulously full of flavor. The meat falls apart in your mouth and the mushrooms add a luscious earthy goodness.
I made individual pies for this recipe but you could also make a large family sized pie if you prefer. I like to make a variety of sizes that then allows for extras to be frozen for Mr Fresh’s work lunches or as a back up meal after a hectic day.
Do you crave different food when the weather changes? And do you have a favorite family pie filling? I would love to hear what it is in the comments below.
