Meat Pies

Meat is good. Pie is even better. When you combine them together they are really, really good. These meat pies are easy and they are just plain tasty. This is also a great way to use up leftover pot roast or any meat. Get the following ingredients and you can enjoy one too!

1 1/2 cups cooked beef ( I used chuck roast but anything will do)
1/2 cup cooking liquid
2 tablespoons of flour
1/2 teaspoon of season salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1 green onion (optional)
1 can of jumbo crescent rolls

Start by shredding the meat and adding the flour, seasonings, and green onion to it. Make sure the pieces are all about bite size.

Take the rolls out of the package and roll the dough to 1/4 inch thickness.

If the dough becomes too thin or sticky, you can always roll it out again or put it in the refrigerator.

  Once the dough is a good thickness, place about 1/4 cup of the filling at the end of the rolls.

Fold the dough around the meat and seal it shut by crimping the edges with a fork. Be sure to cut a few holes in the top to allow the steam to escape.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 to 30 minutes or until golden brown on the top. 

Serve with vegetables on the side and prove pie isn't just for dessert!


  1. Great pictures! These pies remind me of the pies we eat when we are in South Africa. I can't wait to make them!

  2. Thanks, Linda! They are super easy to make, I want to try some other fillings too. I hope you like them!

  3. I like that you used Crescent Rolls! I love those babies!
