Beef and Beer Potpie
It’s about time potpie got a makeover, and our stunning version will earn a spot in your regular weeknight dinner rotation. Browning the beef in a hot cast-iron skillet ensures great color and braising it in beer infuses flavor into every bite. Colorful butternut squash livens up the potpie, but feel free to use carrots, parsnips, or other root veggies instead. The best part, of course, is the flaky golden-brown puff pastry, which is placed directly atop the skillet before the dish is transferred to the oven. Garnish with fresh thyme, and serve warm.
