This recipe turned out quite tasty. I made a couple of changes though. Instead of 1/3 cup water I filled 1/2 of the soup can with milk. I used cream of mushroom soup since that was all I had on hand, and I added a lot of salt, pepper, & some garlic. I made my own pie crust recipe, and instead of 1 crust I made a 2 crust, and used a 8x8 pan. Here is the recipe. 2-2/3 cups flour, 1 t. salt, 1 cup shortening, 7-8 T.water. I always add 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese to my potpie crusts. Mix flour w/ salt, cut in shortening, add water 1T. at a time, form into ball Roll out
Very good overall. When I make it again, I would use less thyme and add more liquid. I followed the recipe except for using milk instead of water. The finished pot pie was on the dry side (not much gravy) and had a stronger thyme taste than i liked.
It's an awesome base start. Filling: I put 1/2 c. water in a sauce pan and cooked frozen "steamer" veggies package (corn/peas/beans medley). Drain. Return veggies to the pot. Cut up canned cooked potatoes into bite sizes. Mix in with the cooked veggies. Season veggies with salt/pepper/onion flakes/. Add 1 can of CREAM of Mushroom (vs. golden mush) to the pot and heat the soup on low. Add one 6oz plain yogurt. Heat and stir. Season the filling to taste. Should like the way the filling tastes all by itself. Then, one pie crust on bottom of pie ban. Place the cubed beef over the crust. I made a pot roast and cubed it so the beef was delicious. Pour filling over the beef. I added shredded cheddar on top of the filling and topped with the other pie crust. Cut an "+" into the top crust to vent. Cook til top crust is golden brown.
