Left over beef stew into beef potpie?- General Recipes

Aren't they pretty much the same? I have leftovers that really need to be used. I thought I might thicken the gravy just a little more( kinda thick already)add a bit more beef stock,make a couple pie crust and see how it goes. Has anyone done this or think it's worth trying?

    Sure, it is a common use of leftover stews to make pot pies and/or shepherd's pies. It will work just fine. Hope this helps. Thanks; Virginia

    I do this all of the time of take a leftover and convert it. I am amazed at how often my boys wont eat it the first time around but will devour it in the second recipe not knowing it is a leftover.

    You could also make a beef and gravy with rice kinda dish.
    Just heat everything up and thicken the gravy a bit.
    Make a cup or two of rice then serve the hot beef and gravy over the rice. Can
    serve with toast or over toast.

    Usually when I make the chicken or beef pot pie things, instead of using pie crusts, I mix up some bisquick or equivalent with milk and egg. Then pour onto the top of pot pie filling. Then bake. Pretty tasty.

    willbe95! You'r so naughty! Trickin those babies like that :0)
    MrsPaws, We actually ate it over rice the first night. It has taken on many shapes and forms this week... Thanks for the idea on the bisquix. I read this to late though. I will try it next time. I made it into Beef pot pie tonight and it was eaten completely up. I love that. No waste.
