This was soooo good! I used up some leftover gravy and added peas and 1/4 tsp. oregano. This really held together well and was not running all over the plate like my usual beef pies. This will go in my favorite beef recipe folder! Thanks.
I really enjoyed this recipe. Going to add it to my winter staples. Thanks!
Very good!! I will be making this again. I added some frozen peas and omitted the mushrooms and celery (DH doesn't like) and it was just what we were looking for. Thanks for posting.
