Beef, Butternut & Potato Pie
I love Fall and one of my favorite things to do is go to the Harvest Festivals! You can catch a hayride pulled by tractor or horse team out to the pumpkin patch where you can pick your own pumpkin.
When you get back with your future Jack-O-Lantern there are plenty of varieties of squash waiting for you.
Butternut, Hubbard and similar hards shelled squash should be harvested when it is smooth and dull colored. These squash do not need curing in the traditional sense like pumpkins. Pumpkins start out with a soft shell that hardens in about 10 days when left in a dry area with good air circulation. Winter squash will keep for several months stored in a cool, dry place. Acorn, delicate and sweet varieties have the shortest storage times. I store these in the refrigerator.
I like all kinds of squash. You’ll find zucchini and yellow squash on my table weekly as weather permits throughout summer. By the beginning of September my thought turn towards heartier meals. Winter squash fits the bill.
Turkey Butternut Squash and Orzo Casserole recipe moves to the front of the list of casserole season.
I make spaghetti squash like in Cheesy Spaghetti Squash Casserole and Spaghetti Squash, Mushrooms and Spinach. Acorn squash either gets cinnamon with brown sugar and butter filled cavities or stuffed like in Acorn Squash with Italian Sausage Stuffing .
For today’s Sunday Supper Squash Fest celebration I chose to make a meat and veggie pie with gravy. Beef, Butternut and Potato Pie in a flaky crust.
It may not make that picture perfect slice like quiche or Shepherd’s Pie, but the taste is worth it!
- 1 lb beef cut into ½-inch cubes, about 2 cups (I used eye round)
- 1 medium butternut squash peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes, about 2 cups
- 3 medium potatoes peeled and cut into ½ inch cubes, about 2 cups
- 1 9-inch pie crust homemade or purchased
- 1 cup beef stock
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 Teaspoon seasoned salt
- 1 Tablespoon French thyme
- 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
- salt and pepper to taste
- Place pie crust in a pie pan.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place squash and potatoes on a cookie sheet. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with thyme and seasoned salt. Roast until fork tender.
- Brown beef pieces oil and cook until beef reaches at least 140 degrees.
- Place beef in pie shell. Add squash and potatoes.
- Add broth to pan juices. Whisk in cornstarch. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened. Salt and pepper to taste.
- Pour gravy over meat and veggies.
- Bake at 375 until crust is golden brown. (about 25 minutes)
- Cool 10 minutes before cutting.
