Holiday Brisket Pot Pie

Total Time:
1 hr 10 min
15 min
55 min

4 servings

  • 1 pound cooked brisket (purchased from a deli)
  • 1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup diced sweet onions, such as Vidalia
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup peas (canned or frozen)
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced Yukon Gold potatoes, parboiled
  • 1 package puff pastry dough, cut into 2 large pieces to cover the top of the ramekins
  • 2 large egg yolks, whisked
  • Special equipment: two 16-ounce ramekins

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Shred the brisket by hand into small pieces and place in a large bowl. Set aside.

  • Heat a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butter and allow to melt completely. Add the onions and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Slowly add the flour and cook, stirring, until the flour is golden brown, another 2 minutes.

  • Add the chicken broth and mix well. Next, add the red pepper flakes if using. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture starts to thicken to a gravy, about 5 minutes.

  • Sprinkle in the black pepper and mix well. Add the peas, carrots, potatoes and brisket; mix well. Let simmer for 5 minutes, then remove from the heat.

  • Fill two 16-ounce ramekins with the pot pie mixture and cover with the puff pastry dough. Pinch the dough tight around the edges to seal, then brush with the egg yolk. With a sharp knife, cut a few small slits in the dough.

  • Set the ramekins on a baking sheet and transfer to the oven. Bake until the crust is golden brown, about 40 minutes.
