Shepherd's Pie

Wow! This shepherd's pie recipe is fantastic! Recipe and instructions click here. I'm copying and pasting the ingredients below for my own records, but check out the link for cooking directions.

I did not puree the carrots as directed in the original recipe b/c my blender is broken. I just boiled diced carrots in salted water and then layered them over the beef layer. They were delicious.

Its a little labor intensive, but totally worth the your efforts. Go ahead an double the recipe and make a couple of Pyrex dishes to freeze for the future!

  1. We lurve Shepherd's Pie! I've been making it for a few years and have found that when I freeze the whole dish, i.e. with potatoes, the potatoes don't reheat well. How did yours turn out after freezing? I always just prepare the filling and freeze that and then make fresh potatoes and then top and bake. I'm interested to see how your potatoes hold up! Also, try adding a little red wide to your filling...its amazing!

  2. making this now! hope it's good!
