This Easy Shepherd's Pie recipe comes from www.elise.com.
1 1/2 lbs ground round beef
1 onion chopped
1-2 cups vegetables (chopped carrots, corn, peas)
1 1/2 - 2 lbs potatoes (3 big ones)
8 tablespoons butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup beef broth
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
salt, pepper, other seasonings of choice
Peel and quarter potatoes, boil in salted water
While the potatoes are cooking, melt 4 tbls butter in large frying pan
Saute onions in butter until tender over medium heat (10 mins)
If adding vegetables, add them according to cooking time
Put any carrots in with the onions.
Add corn or peas either at the end of the cooking of the onions,
or after the meat has initially cooked.
Add ground beef and saute until no longer pink. Add salt & pepper.
Add worcestershire sauce.
Add half a cup of beef broth and cook, uncovered, over low heat
for 10 minutes, adding more beef broth as necessary to keep moist.
Mash potatoes in bowl with remainder of butter, season to taste.
Place beef and onions in baking dish. Distribute mashed potatoes
on top. Rough up with a fork so that there are peaks that will brown
nicely. You can use the fork to make some designs in potatoes as well.
Cook in 400 degree oven until bubbling and brown (about 30 min)
Broil for last few minutes if necessary to brown
I made it like I was making mashed potatoes so I added some milk.
I also added garlic to the potatoes and to the ground beef.
Oh yeah! I forgot to peel the potatoes first, so I left the skin on,
and mashed it with the skin on. It added nice texture.
It says this recipe serves 4. We had it for dinner twice.
J loved it. The kids wanted more.
The kids actually ate the veggies!!
