Rich and Chunky Slow Cooker Steak Pie

If you’re looking for a simple slow cooker steak pie filling, then you don’t need to look any further.

Slow Cooker Steak Pie

This easy slow cooker recipe doesn’t require much prep, but the end result is amazing.

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 complements the tender beef quite well and will leave you very satisfied.

As with any great pie, this dish doesn’t really require any sides. With that said, a good salad, baby potatoes, mashed potato, or a side of potato chips goes surprisingly well with this beef pie. Excellent, if you need to feed a crowd.

Steak Pie Filling

A great way to make pies fast and easy is to use a pie maker. These typically 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 hot filling.

There are many other slow cooker beef dishes that you can make. You can always try using something like the satay beef as a pie filling. It’s 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’s as good as it sounds and has a lovely rich gravy.

    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.

    I gave this recipe 5 / 5

    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.
