Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Steak & Onion Pie

  It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me.  I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy.  It might be a main course recipe.  A cookie or baked item.  Candy.  Salads.  Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is STEAK & ONION PIE.

I’m a meat and potatoes kind of gal. Throw that combination under pastry and I’m in love! This pot pie is savory, flavorful, a nice change from the typical chicken and turkey pot pies.  It’s even good cold so you can throw it into a lunchbox.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s.  Happy eating!

    1. Yeah, it does sound very much like a Shepherd’s pie, doesn’t it. I love to make homemade pot pies because I can fill them with more goodies than you can find in stores. More satisfying!

      Nope, haven’t published a cookbook. Just sharing my favorite recipes with my reader friends for the fun of it! 🙂
