Shepherd's Pie VI
July 05, 2005

My hubby always asks his mom to bake her famous Shepherd's Pie when we go to visit. I have never made it for fear that it would not be as good as hers and he wouldn't want to eat it. This recipe was fantastic, and everyone gobbled three helpings! I followed some of the other suggestions here and cooked potatoes and carrots together in the same pot. I mashed the potatoes with 8oz sour cream and salt/pepper. I used green onion in the mashed potatoes. I sautéed 2 pressed cloves of fresh garlic in butter with the onions to use in the meat mixture. I cooked the meat mixture with 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce and added seasoned salt to taste. I bumped up the ketchup to 1/4 cup, but I think half that (2 tablespoons) would have been fine. I used 1 packet of brown gravy mix with 1 cup water instead of the beef broth as suggested. And I mixed the ground beef with about a cup of frozen mixed veggies (peas and corn). Everyone loved it; it was definitely a huge hit!
