Meat and Mushroom Pub Pies

Servings: 4
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total: 35 minutes


  • ½ frozen puff pastry sheet, defrosted
  • 1 pound ground beef sirloin
  • 6 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 ½ cups chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons crushed dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups fat-free low-sodium canned beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon bottled steak sauce
  • ½ cup frozen peas, rinsed with cold water and drained


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to 6-inch square. Using a sharp knife, cut into twelve 1/2-inch strips.  (Or you can just cut squares to fit over your ramekins.)
  3. In a heavy skillet over medium-high heat, brown beef, mushrooms, and onion until beef is no longer pink (about 5 minutes). Sprinkle mixture with thyme and flour.
  4. Add beef broth and steak sauce; cook, stirring, for 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in peas. Spoon mixture into ramekins about 5 inches in diameter.
  6. Arrange two pastry strips in a wide X over each casserole. Place a third strip across the center. Press overhangs firmly to sides of casseroles to seal.  (Or just fold your puff pastry square over the ramekin.)
  7. Bake until pastry is puffed and golden brown, about 15 minutes.
