Zesty Brown Gravy Pot Pie

Hello, Darlings

In my post on Friday,  Fried Chops in Zesty Brown Gravy, I made another batch of gravy in order to have enough for yesterday’s dinner. That being the case, I had some gravy leftover. The leftover came to about a cup and a half, which is quite a bit. Not being a person to throw away good food, I made the following pot pie,

P. S. I have been watching the Netflix Korean series The Good Detective, and I have become fascinated with the lunch that the two male leads (Son Hyun-joo and Jang Hyun Deok) ate in S1: E1 "Episode 1". Picture below. The meal looks so good that I want to know what it is and how to make it. Do you know what it is? Do you have a recipe to share? If so, Email me the recipe at
