Um, no...if it uses ground beef, it's COTTAGE pie. I shouldn't have to go outside the website and do a Google search for "My recipes shepherd's pie" to find what I'm looking for (as this website's search function isn't working, for just this recipe oddly enough) only to discover that it's not even shepherds' pie. What does it take to find a recipe on this site??
Absolutely delicious! Great flavors and the carrot potatoes were fantastic!
This was great! I served it for Dinner and everyone (even the most picky) ate it up! It was everything everyone said and more....
The Best Shepherd's pie I've ever had. Being the southern girl that I am, I had a very hard time using the frozen mashed potatoes, but I broke down and made it exactly the way the recipe was given. After reading the reviews of others, I did not mix 2 1/2 cups of milk and added it slowly 'til I got the consistency that I wanted. However, next time they will be homemade. Overall it was was excellent and this meal will definitely be making its way into the rotation.
I make this a few times a winter for my husband, and every St. Patrick's day for a friend's party and it is a huge hit. I always "lighten" it up and it's still just as good. I use very little skim milk for the potatoes, 2% cheese, and ground turkey instead of beef. It's not horrible to make on a weeknight either.
This has a great flavor, but the meat is basically lost under the potatoes. The texture was somewhat runny.
This is a favorite at our house. Love it using left over roast beef!
Great basic recipe for the meat mixture as the base. I add more flavor with minced garlic, Mrs. Dash, & Italian seasoning. I do make my own mashed potatoes with butter, salt & pepper, & buttermilk and add in microwaved cooked carrots. Leftovers are always good and it freezes well to heat & eat at another time.
My family loves this (including a 3 and 6 year old)! I used a bag of frozen peas and carrots in with the meat and then just added butter and shredded sharp cheddar to the taters. It was a huge hit. I just finished making it with lamb and hope to get the same great reaction! (and I used a few Tbsp of tomato paste and some of the water from the potatoes instead of a can of tomatoes. I didn't like the idea of chunks of tomato in this for whatever reason)
this recipe turned out very well. i substituted diced tomatoes for the stewed tomatoes, used mashed potatoes without carrots, and added worcestershire sauce (about 3 TBSP) to the beef. cooked it in 3 small casserole dishes. think it could be made for guests by cooking portions in individual casserole dishes. the flavors intensified overnight and tasted even better the next day.
Very good. I skipped the carrots in the potatoes, we were out. I also put them on top of the tomato, meat mixture and then broiled for a few minutes to give them a browned look. Delicious.
This is a very nice, quick, simple and hearty meal. Traditionally speaking, however, it is anything but a traditional Shepherdâs pie: Thus the name Shepherd, as in sheep herder. Try it sometime.
This recipe was very flavorful. I omitted the carrots from the mashed potatoes. Like others, I omitted the extra milk. I also added extra garlic, red pepper flakes extra red wine vinegar and Worcestershire sauce.
Very tasty and comforting but labor intensive if you don't have everything premeasured and ready to use like a cooking show!
Delicious. Even my kids ate it. I did make a few modifications though. First, I pureed the meat/veggie mixture with an immersion blender. Second, I made my own fresh mashed potatoes and I mashed broccoli in with the potatoes instead of carrots. And I cooked it twice as long as the recipe indicated.
We had a leftover meatloaf and mashed potatoes and used them to make this dish. It was delicious! Everyone wanted more. Yum.
I'm sure this will be a 5 star recipe the next time I make it. Misprints and confusion caused the dish to be too wet but still delicious. Do not follow the mashed potatoes direction to add 2 1/2 cups of milk - just follow normal directions on package or your own. Definitely drain the stewed tomatoes too. I added can of green beans instead of peas and used chuck beef.
Delicious and easy! I used left-over mashed potatoes for the top, and added chopped carrots and celery to the meat/onions mix. Also, I used a tablespoon or so of tomato paste instead of the can of tomatoes. A bit hit!
This was delicious and a big hit with my family. I love one-dish meals and was able to bake it in the same dish I browned the meat and onions in. Easy cleanup! Frozen mashed potatoes are expensive. Next time I might try making my own, just making sure to make them really thin.
This was FANTASTIC! I used ground lamb instead of the ground beef. A big hit with the whole family, including all 4 kids. Will definitely make this one again and again!
Good comfort food. It was very easy, fast, and delicious. Very hearty meal that would go well with some garlic bread. I wasn't so crazy about the potatoes with the carrots so next time ill try them without but they still tasted very good. Worth a try to make again definitely!
This is a great tasting and easy recipe for shepherd's Pie. I will make it an a regular basis. I used dry packaged mashed potatoes made as directed on the package. I chopped the carrots so they would cook quicker.
Delicious and not too hard to make. The flavors went very well together. I froze half for later and will let ya'll know how it turns out when I reheat it in a couple weeks.
I made this recipe for a dinner party. It was extremely easy and delicious! It completely disappeared off the table. The only things I changed were that in the mashed potatoes I used regular carrots chopped into pieces instead of baby carrots, and I used frozen mashed potatoes that didn't require mixing with milk. Since the mashed potatoes I bought already had salt I didn't add any extra.
