Chunky Slow Cooker Steak Pie

If you are looking for a simple slow cooker steak pie filling, you do not need to look any further.

Slow Cooker Steak Pie

This pie filling is quite simple, but the flavors will leave you wanting seconds. A simple combination of herbs, Worcestershire sauce, and beef stock creates a rich, deep gravy sauce. This sauce compliments the tender beef quite well and will leave you very satisfied.

Much like most easy slow cooker recipes, this dish does not require much prep, yet the result is amazing. I highly recommend giving it a try if you are super limited in time.

This recipe should make enough pie filling to be able to feed six people. However, with some side dishes, you should be able to feed even more people. I have a few ideas for side dishes further down the page.

What to Serve with Steak Pies

As with any great pie, this dish does not really require any side dishes. With that said, there are plenty of foods that will go very nicely with the pie.

The easiest and healthiest is a delicious green salad. I like to keep things basic and usually do a combination of lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and sliced red onion. Feel free to get creative.

Steak Pie Filling

Some delicious baby potatoes cooked in a herby butter will work very nicely as a side dish. I love to cook them in a slow cooker as they end up very flavorsome by the time they are ready. Mashed potatoes are also a great potato side dish.

My last suggestion is to do the classic pie and chips combination. I recommend cooking the chips in the oven or deep fryer for the best result. It is an excellent side dish if you need to feed a crowd.

Making the Pies

A great way to make pies easily is to use a pie maker. These devices can make two pies at a time, but you can buy larger ones that can make four. The result is a golden pastry and a deliciously hot filling.

Slow-Cooked Beef Pie Filling

Alternatively, you can make the pies in some pie tins. I recommend that you blind bake the pastry before you add the filling. Once the pies are filled, top with another piece of pastry.

You could also make some pot pies using the filling and some pastry. Simply add the beef filling to a baking dish and top with some pastry.

I show you all the steps to making this delicious steak pie filling in the slow cooker in the video below. Alternatively, you can find the full written recipe right below.

  • A cheap cut of beef is ideal as we will be cooking this steak pie filling for a long time in the slow cooker. By the time the dish is ready, the beef will be incredibly tender and packed full of flavor.
  • You can add some vegetables to the beef mixture if you want to add more flavor and nutrition to the slow cooker pie filling. Carrots, peas, and celery are all great additions to this lovely slow cooker steak pie.

More Slow Cooker Beef Recipes

There are many other slow cooker beef dishes that you can make. Below are a couple of my absolute favorites.

You can always try using something like the satay beef as a pie filling. It is bound to be delicious, but make sure you thicken it so that it will sit in a pie case nicely.

Another slow cooker pie filling that you need to try is the flavor-packed beef and mushroom. It is as good as it sounds and has a lovely rich gravy.

This slow cooker steak pie filling is absolutely delicious and surprisingly easy to make. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did. If you have some feedback, tips, or anything else that you would like to say, then please do not hesitate to leave a comment below.

Note: I use a 5.5L (6 Quart) slow cooker for all the recipes that I have on this website unless specified. If you have a smaller or larger slow cooker, then you might need to adjust the ingredients.

    Hi, love how easy this recipes looks! It says it makes 6 serves, does this mean 6 individual pies? Many thanks

      Hi Kat,

      It depends on how large your pie cases are. From memory, it made roughly 12 pies using the tins I had lying around the house.

      A nice addition is an Italian style SOFRITO. Basically equal amounts of finely diced carrots, celery and onions with maybe a couple of cloves of garlic or a teaspoon or two of garlic granules [and a dash or two of TOMATO paste and a few mixed herbs will not go amiss] fried off in some decent light olive oil or olive oil and butter. Add a good quality veg stock cube and when ‘fried off’ a tablespoon or so of corn starch, fine flour or my favorite rice flour just enough to thicken. Blitz down to a gravy for your beef and continue as above.

      A good Sofrito really does make a difference and adds to that good’ole ‘five-a-day’ which cannot be a bad thing!

    Really good. However I went one extra step and removed the meat when it finished cooking and blended the juice and onion to make a smooth gravy. Then thickened that with the cornstarch before returning the meat. Kids loved it.

    Perfect as it is or ideal for varying flavours and ingredients. I made the filling on the weekend and was able to just throw a pie in the oven after work a few days later. I will be adding this recipe to my go to pile.
