The Mayors Favourite “Shepard’s Pie”

IMG_6003My husband the Mayor is almost always requesting Shepard’s Pie.  So much so that it gets boring.  This time I put a little twist on it.  I didn’t think it was anything fancy but the gang sure liked it.It sure was easy to make and I made the meat filling the day before.  So on the day, I all I had to do were my mashed potatoes.  So easy.

IMG_5987Chop 1 carrot, 1 rib of celery, 1 onion.  Sorry forgot to take pictures of the potatoes.  Peel and cube about 10 potatoes.  Cook until soft, drain and add 2 tablespoons of butter and 1/4 cup of milk, mash.  Set aside.

IMG_5988Place veggies ad garlic into a pan with some olive oil and fry for about 5 minutes.

IMG_5989Next, add your ground beef and brown, breaking it up into little bits then adding 1 teaspoon cumin, 2 cloves grated garlic, 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.

IMG_5990When meat has browned add 2 cups of frozen peas and 2 cups of corn.  Mix well.

IMG_5991Next add 1 box of beef stock about 3-4 cups and then add 1/2 – 3/4 cup flour.  Mix well so there are no lumps.

IMG_5994Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly until it slightly thickens.

IMG_5995Into a oven proof pan, first add some meat mixture then a layer of your favourite cheese.  I used mozzarella.

IMG_5996Then a layer of mashed potatoes.

IMG_5997Followed by another layer of meat, cheese…

IMG_6000Potato and ending with a layer of cheese.  Cover and bake at 325 degrees for approximately 2 hours.  When it is piping hot through out, it is ready.

IMG_6009Serve with a crusty roll and a scrumptious salad.

Into a 9×13 inch pan first place some meat mixture, cheese and mashed potato.  Repeat this process until all of the meat, potato and cheese are used up.  Always end with the cheese on top.
