Corned Beef and Cabbage Shepherd's Pie
This is a combination of my favorite corned beef and cabbage recipe, and my favorite shepherd's pie recipe. It involves a few extra steps when compared to your traditional boiled beef dinner, but the payoff at the end is well worth the extra effort. By layering the ingredients in a casserole dish, each serving has the perfect proportions of beef, cabbage, carrots, and potatoes.
When you buy your corned beef you usually have a choice between a flat, lean one and a thick, fatty one. Use the thick, fatty one if you can get it.
You can use any green cabbage in place of Savoy, and any Cheddar cheese you like.
This technique is perfect for making individual-sized portions, just use small baking dishes.
Nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of corned beef broth. The actual amount of broth consumed will vary.
