  • In a large saucepan over medium high heat, brown the ground beef for 5 to 10 minutes; drain excess fat. Add the onion, salt, ground black pepper, chili powder, tomatoes, corn, peas and green beans. Reduce heat to low and let simmer.

  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the buttermilk baking mix and the milk. Mix well to form a dough. Split in half and roll dough out to line the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Make sure dough covers the bottom and sides of the dish.

  • After the beef mixture has simmered for about 15 to 20 minutes, pour into the baking dish over the dough. Spoon the mashed potatoes over the beef mixture, spreading evenly. Layer the cheese over the potatoes. Roll out the other half of the dough to fit over the top. Trim the edges and seal .

  • Bake at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for 25 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown.

J'Teena nice twist on shepherds pie. I took other reviewers suggestions of doing only a top crust. I used garlic and cheddar cheese in the biscuit mix. For extra flavor I also added 1t garlic powder to the meat while it was cooking and 1/4c parmesan cheese and 1t garlic powder to the mashed potatoes. My family gave it "two thumbs up". My hubby has asked me to make it for his fishing campout with his buds! Now that's a compliment!:-)PS I used all frozen veggies since we don't care for the canned version. Read More

Flawed yet filling!? I added blanched fresh vegetables insted of canned because the thought of canned peas makes me! My wife suggested leaving off the top crust because the bottom layer was plenty. A little bland in the seasonings but I would make it again and spice it up a little more. Would be good on a cold winters night. Read More

I've got a family of 5 three of which are young and very picky boys so I'm always on the lookout for something that is both tasty and filling. This fit both bills. I cut out the bottom layer of biscuit mix and just used the mashed potatos instead I also added a large can of mushrooms and increased the chili powder. We'll definitely be making this again as it's a LOT of food and the boys all loved it! Read More

My bunch really enjoyed this recipe. It really does make a lot but you really can't have too much. Tastes just as good warmed over later. I added some sharp chedder cheese. The one complaint I got was the WHOLE tomatoes I will use the chopped can of tomatoes when I cook it for church Sunday. I may get brave and add some sour cream with the potatoes to give it a perk!! There was alot of crust but I like that. Made it really pretty too. I suggest to those who don't like much crust to just make less crust. I like crust of the top and bottom. Just grease your dish with butter or spray and it won't stick. I think this is so far the best recipe on this site I've come across so far... but I have plenty to try. Read More

It was good. Did not have all of the ingredients but was still good. We used 8oz tomato sauce (no tomatoes) 2 cans of corn (no peas) and just topped with potatoes (no crust). I will make again when I have all of the stuff. Makes a great shepperd's pie this way. Read More

My family loved this dish. Only thing was I was not able to put top crust on. It was overflowing. I recommend at bigger pan or minus the top crust. It was just as good. Thanks for the wonderful dish. Read More

This is a recipe that my family loved! There was only one problem and that was too much crust and the bottom crust stuck to the bottom of the pan. My only suggestion is leave out either the bottom or top crust!! Read More
