Recipe of the Week: Aberdeen Beef-Bacon Pie

The following Aberdeen Beef-Bacon Pie recipe is from reader L.C.

  • 1/4 pound sliced bacon, diced
  • 3 pounds beef stew meat, in 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced carrots
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pie crust (see standard recipes, or use a store-bought crust)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten (optional)

Preheat oven to 375°.

In a fry pan or Dutch oven, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp.

Remove to paper towels to drain.

Brown the beef in drippings in batches; drain and set beef aside.

Add onion to the pan.

Saute until crisp-tender.

Add carrots, bacon and beef.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the flour, broth, and the Worcestershire sauce until smooth. Add to beef mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until meat is tender, 1 to 1-1/2 hours.

Stir in peas, salt, and pepper. Transfer to an ungreased 11×7-in. baking dish.

On a lightly-floured surface, roll out crust into a 12×8-in. rectangle. Cut slits in crust. Place over filling; trim and seal edges. If desired, brush with beaten egg.

Bake until crust is golden and filling is bubbling, 35-40 minutes.


Let the pie stand for 15 minutes before serving.
