Since the type of meat used is the only real difference in this dish, I find most have a version using beef that they call shepherd's pie even if it technically. I'd forgotten how RIDICULOUSLY good this recipe is as a day-after-meal. I mean, it's like lasagna…just gets better with age. And sometimes, I like to let the Shepherds Pie sit in the oven for just a few minutes "too long" to make the mashed potatoes brown a little…So, if you're into that, this recipe is the one for you.
Instructions to make Ridiculously Good Shepherd's Pie:
- In a large pot, boil the potatoes until soft.
- In a large saucepan, heat the oil on low.
- Add the onion, mushrooms, salt, snd pepper, and cook until translucent.
- Add the meat, incorporate, and cook through. NOTE: I used beef but, obviously, ground lamb could also be used, if you can find it at the supermarket. I couldn't when I put this together, but I still called it Shepherd's Pie because, like with Minced Meat Pies no longer having meat in them these days, just about everyone I know makes Shepherd's Pie with beef, so I figured no harm, no foul. If you are pedantic, I could have called this Cottage Pie, but, in the US, I don't think anyone knows what it is. Besides, I figured, who would want to be that guy, right?
- Stir in the steak sauce, and let cool.
- When cooled, stir in the eggs, and pour the mixture into the bottom of the large casserole. The eggs will firm up the bottom to provide a solid base.
- Add the butter, oil, and carrots into the now-empty large saucepan, and simmer on medium until tender.
- Add the corn niblets, peas, and salt, and mix and simmer until it's all happy and tender.
- Layer the veggies on the meat in the casserole.
- Drain, return to the pot, and mash the potatoes on low.
- Add butter and salt while mashing. I know, it's a lot of butter, so cut it down to 2/3 stick if you like.
- Add the milk to the potatoes. It will be loose at first, but it will firm up a bit while you stir it in a few minutes.
- When the potatoes are stackably firm, scoop it on top of the casserole.
- Throw it all in the oven at 375°F for 45 minutes.
- OK, it will have this beautiful crust after 45min, and you are just going to sprinkle the cheddar over the top.
- Broil for about 5 min, keeping an eye on it after 3 minutes to be sure it doesn't burn, to melt the cheese.
- Remove from heat and try to let it cool about a half hour before diving in. As can be seen from my pic, I always fail. Enjoy.
