  • 1 pkg puff pastry sheets You won't use the entire box but in order to have a clean top on your pastry, if you are using a skillet like I have, you'll need the whole box to use from.
  • 2 med potatoes (I use red potatoes most often), cooked (save ¼ cup of water, if able) I cut and boil mine while I am browning the meat. But feel free to use leftover potatoes or cook yours in the microwave.
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 2 med carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 teaspoons flour
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons herbs de provence this is a blend of multiple spices. If you don't have it sub out dried thyme, sage, and rosemary.
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup frozen peas most any frozen veggie would work fine


  • Set out the puff pastry to thaw, a bit. Don't let it sit out longer than 30 minutes, however.
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • Dice your potatoes and put into a pot of boiling water to cook.
  • Meanwhile, In a large cast iron skillet (or other skillet that can transfer to the oven), begin sauteing your ground beef and ground pork together on medium-high heat.
  • Add the diced onion and carrot with the meat and saute until the meat is cooked through and no longer pink.
  • Add the cloves of garlic and saute another minute or so.
  • Sprinkle the flour and top and stir well until no visible flour remains.
  • Add the beef broth, stir will, and bring to a boil.
  • Turn the pan down to low, add the spices, Worcestershire sauce, and potatoes with the potato water (if you have any--if you don't, add a bit more beef broth if the meat mixture feels dry).
  • Gently mash the potatoes with the back of a spoon or potato masher.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the frozen veggies.
  • Taste the meat mixture and add additional salt, pepper, spices, or beef broth if you feel it is needed.
  • Top the skillet with puff pastry. You will need to use a few sheets to fully cover the skillet, cutting off the edges as needed.
  • Optional, brush the pastry with a beaten egg or milk.
  • Bake on 400 degrees for about 30-35 minutes or until the Puff Pastry is a deep golden brown.
