Recipe – Shepherd’s Pie ala Steve

I made this awesome rendition of Shepherd’s Pie for my roommates. It was one of the best we have ever tasted. The recipe is actually a conglomeration from multiple sites.

Now true Shepherd’s pie contains lamb. The version with ground beef or turkey is actually “Cottage Pie.”

Americans will call it Shepherd’s Pie, but it’s not, guys. Here is a more Irish version for you. You won’t be disappointed.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Peel and chop the potatoes in medium pieces and boil them in water. While waiting on that, begin to make the meat mixture.
  3. Place oil and butter in large pan over medium heat. Saute the onions in the butter and oil mix. Add lamb to brown the meat. Then add the cayenne, cinnamon, paprika, and garlic. Stir it in then add the broth and worcestershire sauce. Then begin to stir in the flour till it's well incorporated into the mixture.
  4. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot to mash them up. Add the milk, butter and stir them all together. Add the cheeses and blend them until melted.
  5. Spray a 9x12 baking dish with oil and place a layer of the mashed potatoes on the bottom. Then add the vegetables leaving about 1/4 of an inch border around the pan open. Then add a layer of the meat on top of the veggies keeping the border. Finally add a layer of mashed potatoes to fill in the sides and top. Top the final layer with 1/4 cup of the shredded cheese and place in the oven.
  6. Cook for 25 - 30 minutes until the top is browned.
Recipe Notes

Sometimes you may want to kick the oven into broil mode for 2 minutes if it hasn't browned.
