This "pie" may be deconstructed, but it's fully built with delicious flavor, from the meaty steak strips, yummy vegetables, rich red wine sauce, and the cheesy, crumbly puff pastry on top. Deconstruction, reconstructed, whatever. Delicious is the only "d" word that matters.

  1. 1

    Bake Pastry and Prepare Ingredients

    Remove puff pastry from refrigerator. Remove any sheets of paper from between puff pastry, if necessary. Cut puff pastry into four equally-sized squares.

    Place squares on prepared baking sheet. Top evenly with half the cheese (reserve remaining for garnish).

    Bake in hot oven until "puffed" and golden brown, 8-10 minutes.

    While pastry bakes, stem thyme and coarsely chop.

    Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry. Coarsely chop.

  2. 2

    Start the Steak Strips and Vegetables

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add steak strips and carrot and celery blend to hot pan. Stir occasionally until vegetables begin to soften, no pink remains on steak strips, and steak strips reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

  3. 3

    Finish the Steak Strips and Vegetables

    Stir flour into hot pan until no dry flour remains in pan.

    Add wine. Stir until reduced by half, 30-60 seconds.

    Stir in 11/2 cups water, demi-glace, and a pinch of salt and pepper until combined. Bring to a boil.

    Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer until slightly thickened and smooth, 2-3 minutes.

    Stir in peas, garlic salt, 1 tsp. thyme, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Then stir occasionally until peas are heated through, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.
