Meat Pie

Thank you to Miss Gollum for hosting another fun and Fabulous Foodie Friday.

This is a Meat Pie recipe that a Cyber Friend Diane on one of the boards that I belong to submitted this "Meat Pie" recipe. She said that her Mom always makes this recipe for one of her brothers........who when comes home to visit this pie is ready waiting for him. Now Diane makes this pie for her six kids. This pie is the ultimate "comfort" food for me........it is very tasty.

Meat Pie

1 double crust Pie Pastry (either home made or store bought)


1 tbsp.. oil

1 ½ lb. ground beef
½ cup chopped onion
1 can French style green beans (drained)
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
¼ tsp. pepper
¼ tsp. oregano
1 can condensed tomato soup (I use Campbell’s)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees..........

Heat oil in skillet and sauté up the chopped onion.
Add the beef and cook until browned.

Remove the meat from the heat and add the salt, pepper, oregano, sugar, soup and green beans. Stir well.

Roll out one crust and fit into a 9” pie plate.
Add the filling to the crust.
Roll out the second crust and fit over the filling.

Crimp the edges of the pie to seal in the filling.

Poke some holes with the tines of a fork or a knife tip to allow for steam to escape.

Brush the top pastry with a beaten egg.

Place on a cookie sheet which has been lines with parchment and bake for 40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

I use the Pillsbury ready made pie crust, I found that it saved me time and turned out well. My family doesn't like oregano so I omitted that and it turned out fine. I didn't have any green beans in my pantry so I threw in a handful of frozen peas and my family enjoyed it better, but I guess it is what you prefer....As you can see my husband likes things more baked, well over baked. You should see how he toasts his toast, most people would be scraping the burnt parts but that is how he likes it.

This is my leaf design that I did with the scraps..................

  1. Thanks Linda....
    That was my first time making that meat pie and I must say I can eat the whole thing myself.
    I always thought that your pies come out perfectly baked and crimped. :-)

  2. This looks really good -- and is so pretty!

  3. Erica, this looks scrumptious--true comfort food. I'm jotting down your recipe so I can make this next week. I love your leaf pattern.

  4. This looks wonderful and its a perfect meal to ward off the cold and damp that's sitting over my house and won't go away. I hope you are having a wonderful Foodie Friday.

  5. Erica:

    Too funny.....I made Diane's meat pie Monday for the first time and it was a big hit. I also used the Pillsbury pie dough. It was an easy comfort meal and went over well w/my guys. I love your photos!
