HOMEMADE COCONUT OIL CRUST:

  • 6 cups UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour plus more for rolling out the pie crust
  • 1 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder aluminum free
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups coconut oil
  • Ice water as needed

Instructions
 

BEEF FILLING:

  • Cut steak into cubes.
  • Melt avocado oil in a very large skillet.
  • Add beef.
  • Cook a few minutes turning over each side so no pink remains.
  • Cover with lid and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes until beef is tender.
  • Add onions, leeks and garlic.
  • Stir to combine and continue cooking with lid on another 5 minutes.
  • Add mushrooms and sauté 5 more minutes.
  • Add butternut squash, apple, celery, bell peppers, zucchini, carrots, beef broth and seasonings.
  • Cover with lid and cook until butternut squash and carrots are fork tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Dissolve flour in enough water to make a thin paste.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Cook a few minutes until mixture thickens.
  • Turn off heat.
  • Set aside.
  • Prepare pastry.
  • Fit bottom crust into three different 10-inch deep dish pie crusts or about 12 large ramekins.
  • Prepare top crusts.
  • Divide beef filling between each pie.
  • Top with top crust.
  • Make about 6 slits in the pie for filling to bubble to the surface.
  • Bake at 350° about 45 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to 300° and bake an additional 15-20 minutes, or until filling bubbles up thickly through slits or lattice crust and tests done.
  • If necessary, tent pies with foil to avoid over-browning.
  • Yield: Each pie serves 6.

HOMEMADE COCONUT OIL PIE CRUST:

  • Mix flour with salt and baking powder.
  • Cut in coconut oil with a pastry blender.
  • Use as much as needed to get the flour to look like coarse meal.
  • Add ice water – enough that you can stir the dough and it mostly adheres together.
  • Form dough into six grapefruit sized balls.
  • Place waxed paper on counter.
  • Sprinkle very generously with flour.
  • Place one of the dough balls in center.
  • Cover with more flour and additional waxed paper.
  • Roll out from the center to the edges, about 1/8” thick forming a circle that will completely cover the bottom and sides of pie plate.
  • Fit dough into pie plate.
  • Repeat, fitting dough into additional pie plates.
  • Roll out remaining dough and have available for top crust.
  • Divide beef pot pie filling between each pie shell.
  • Cover with top crust.
  • Flute the edges.
  • Cut slits in the top to allow steam to escape.
  • Bake as directed above.

Notes

NOTE: You can also freeze one or two of the pies before baking. Thaw several hours before baking, or bake frozen until cooked through – probably about 2 hours.
 
NOTE: You can also bake these in 12 individual large ramekins.
 
NOTE: You can use a lattice crust for the top.
 
NOTE: I used 1 lb. of top sirloin and 1 ½ lbs. of previously cooked steak. I added the pre-cooked steak at the very end before putting the filling into the pie shells.
 
NOTE: I baked the large pie about 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, the other smaller dishes took about 45 minutes to an hour (at 350).
 
NOTE: Preparation time does not include time required to make or roll out pie crust.
