This flavorful Steak and Mushroom Pie uses both fresh and dried mushrooms to create a comforting and filling meal for the whole family.


  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry
  • 1 oz. dry porcini mushrooms
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 lb. beef strips (such as skirt steak strips or strip steak slices)
  • 2 tsp. salt, divided
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. cooking oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 8 oz. button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 cup low-sodium beef stock
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp. dried thyme


  1. Defrost the puff pastry sheet according to package instructions. The best way to do this is overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. Place the dried mushrooms into a small bowl. Top with the boiling water and allow to soak for 30 minutes. Place a strainer over a bowl and strain the mushrooms. Do not discard the liquid and do not discard the mushrooms. Set both aside for later in the recipe.
  3. Season the beef with 1 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper. Set aside.
  4. In a medium skillet over medium heat, warm the cooking oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally until softened, 3-5 minutes.
  5. Add the sliced mushrooms and sauté, stirring occasionally for 4-5 minutes.
  6. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  7. Add the beef and cook, stirring occasionally, until well-browned, 5-6 minutes.
  8. Rinse the rehydrated mushrooms and chop them. Add them to the beef. Stir.
  9. Sprinkle beef and mushrooms with flour and stir.
  10. Add the beef stock and the mushroom soaking liquid. Stir well to combine.
  11. Add the Worcestershire, the remaining teaspoon of salt, and the thyme. Stir.
  12. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until thickened, 3-4 minutes.
  13. Remove from heat.
  14. Transfer steak mixture to a 9-inch pie plate. Allow to cool on the counter for 10 minutes.
    Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  15. Unroll the puff pastry and lay over steak mixture in the pie plate. Crimp the edges using a fork. Poke holes all over the top of the pastry using a fork.
  16. Transfer the pie to the oven and bake until golden brown and bubbling, about 25-30 minutes.
  17. Allow to cool at room temperature for at least 10 minutes before serving.
