Roux(for beef stock)

Olive oil 4T
Parmesan cheese 1/4C
Garlic 1 clove minced

Beef stock thickened
Bring beef stock to a boil and add roux until slightly thickened


For pie place thin slices of beef in the bottom of pre greased small casserole dish (about 2 serving size casserole dish), saute next 7 ingredients together over med-high heat until tender, season with salt and pepper and pour over beef.

Add thickened beef stock, and top with mashed potato and strussel. Place in 350f oven for 8-12 min or until strussel and potatoes start to brown. Remove from oven and enjoy! God bless.
