How to Make Shepard's Pie















Heyy peeps!
I thought I'd share a classic English Recipe with you. Its one of the few British dishes I love because you can spice up the mince and make it your own.
Did you know that the difference between Shepard's Pie and Cottage Pie is that Shepard's pie is always made with Lamb mince and Cottage Pie is always made with beef mince?

I bet I just impacted knowledge on you all for the day? ;-)


It does take time to make, as it is essentially two dishes in one, so its more of a Sunday dinner. It took me about two hours to prepare! But this was because I was doing one thing at a time! I suggest you boil the potatoes first before you start making the mince!

It is very simple though,

1) Boil your potatoes with salt, and then make creamy mash with butter, milk, and black pepper.

2)Fry the mince with onions, garlic, spices, tomato puree and tinned tomatoes until it is completely ready to eat. You can also add carrots or any vegetables you may like.

3)Place the mince at the bottom of an oven dish and then smoothly pile on the mash. Pierce with a fork.

4)Bake in the oven at 200c for about 20minutes or until brown at the top. Sprinkle with cheese if desired.






I hope you guys try it and let me know how it turns out.

Enjoy

  22. Shepard pie is the bomb. And that is all:)

    My ex-stepmum used to make a mean ass shepard's pie. Lactose intolerant or not, i used to wolf down the ish. Sigh. Good memories.
