1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 tablespoon sugar
1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
6 to 7 tablespoons cold water


1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter
1/2 pound top round steak, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup beef broth
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed, drained
1 (11-ounce) can corn, drained
1/2 cup salsa
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American, quartered
1 tablespoon ground cumin


Heat oven to 350°F. 

Combine 1 cup flour, cornmeal and sugar in bowl; stir to mix. Stir in 1/3 cup butter with fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in enough water just until dough forms a ball. Wrap in plastic food wrap; refrigerate.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling; add steak pieces. Cook over medium-high heat 2-4 minutes or until browned. Reduce heat to medium. Add 2 tablespoons flour; stir to coat steak pieces. Add broth, continue cooking 3-5 minutes or until steak pieces are no longer pink and sauce thickens and comes to a boil. Stir in all remaining filling ingredients. Continue cooking 3-4 minutes or until heated through.

Divide pastry dough into 6 equal parts. Pat each piece of dough on floured surface into 4-inch circle. Place about 2/3 cup filling into each of 6 (12-ounce) custard cups or ovenproof bakeware. Place dough circles over filled dishes. Cut several slits in top of crust with sharp knife. Place pies onto ungreased baking sheet; loosely cover with aluminum foil. Bake 30 minutes. Uncover; continue baking 30-35 minutes or until crust is light golden brown.

Recipe Tip

- For easy clean-up, use 6 (4 1/2x1 1/4-inch) foil tart pans instead of custard cups. They can be purchased in the disposable bakeware section of the supermarket.

- Want a quick supper with not a lot of fuss? To make ahead, assemble these individual pot pies as directed; cover each with aluminum foil and freeze them up to 2 months. Thaw in refrigerator for 24 hours. Bake as directed.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

I assembled this casserole and thought it seemed to have to little fluid. I added a little more broth. In hind sight I should have gone with my first instinct that this was going to be too dry, and it was. Has a great flavor. I will make again and without hesitation add more broth.
This is a delicious recipe.. Quick and easy and super tasty, I will be making this often this winter!
This recipe is very simple to make and is great, not only for a quick make ahead meal, but also when you are having unexpected company on a cold winter day for lunch or dinner.
Easy to make up and freeze
