Shepherd’s or Cottage Pie


Shepherd’s or Cottage Pie

40 – 60 minutes, Serves 6 to 8

Here is a great recipe for your mashed potatoes. The difference is that shepherd’s pie is made with ground lamb and cottage pie is made with ground beef. I wonder how a mixture of the two meats would taste. If you try that combination, please let me know. In any case, the creamy mashed potatoes will make a perfect topper.


2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
1 cup Yellow or White Onion, chopped
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 lb Ground Lamb or Beef
½ tsp Steak Seasoning (my preference is Montreal)
½ tsp Kosher Salt
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp All Purpose Flour
2 Tbsp Tomato Paste

Help plant the fields, fill the barns, beautify & heal the landscape
