When the cowboys were on the trail, since supplies were limited, nothing went to waste. This recipe is a great one for using up leftovers, because everything in this cowboy's beef pie can be precooked.
4 cups cubed, cooked beef
2 1/2 cups gravy
3 cups vegetables (you can use potatoes, carrots, string beans,
peas or any other canned or fresh vegetable on hand)
1 small minced onion
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
3 cups mashed potatoes
1 well beaten egg
Combine meat, gravy, vegetables, onion, parsley, salt, and pepper in Dutch oven. Heat to boiling point. Stir often.
Mix mashed potatoes and egg in a separate bowl. Cover the meat and vegetables in the Dutch oven with the potato and egg mixture. Bake at 425 degrees F until the top is brown (15 to 20 minutes).
