  1. Put sweet potato into a saucepan with enough water to cover completely; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until just tender, about 15 minutes; drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  3. Combine water, onion, and garlic in a saucepan; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cook at a simmer until onion softens, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir gravy mix, cumin, cinnamon, curry powder, ginger, black pepper, turmeric, and salt into the water; add leftover pot roast, sweet potatoes, peas, and corn. Cook the mixture, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 5 minutes; pour into the frozen pie crust. Sprinkle feta cheese over the filling.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until crust is golden brown around edges, about 25 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use left over shredded pork or chicken, too. The crust, feta, and spices are what really make this recipe work. You can change veggies, too; try cooked carrots, white potatoes, or just about any root vegetable.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Amazing ! Tasty will make again!

It is a very tasty way to use leftover meat. This review doesn't express how really delicious a meal this is. Try it!!

This is a fantastic recipe. I left the cinnamon out and feta cheese. Used phyllo dough. Lovely

I used pork, sweet potato, parsnip and carrots.

I made this using leftover lamb. In lieu of gravy mix, I used the fat drippings, which was about 3/4 C+ 1/2 C water + 1 tbsp flour. I omitted feta because I didn't have it on hand. The whole fam...

This was one of the yummiest things I've ever made. My mother loved it too, which isn't always true of oddly spiced dishes. This is easy, delicious and it goes a long way. We've actually made...
