Shepherd’s Pie Recipe
1 1/2 lbs ground round beef
1 onion chopped
1 cup fresh diced green beans (1/4 inch)
1 cup diced carrots
1 can corn
1 1/2 – 2 lbs potatoes (4 big ones)
8 tablespoons butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup beef broth
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Peel and quarter potatoes, boil in salted water until tender (about 20 minutes)
While the potatoes are cooking, melt 4 Tablespoons butter (1/2 a stick) in large frying pan
Sauté onions in butter until tender over medium heat (10 mins). If you are adding vegetables, add them according to cooking time. Put any carrots and/or green beans in with the onions. Add corn either at the end of the cooking of the onions, or after the meat has initially cooked.
Add ground beef and sauté until no longer pink. Add salt, pepper and worcesterchire sauce. Then add half a cup of beef broth and cook, uncovered, over low heat for 10 minutes, adding more beef broth as necessary to keep moist
Mash potatoes in bowl with remainder of butter, season to taste (you can add sour cream or cheese to the potatoes if you’d like)
Place beef mixture into baking dish. Distribute mashed potatoes on top. Rough up with a fork so that there are peaks that will brown nicely. You can use the fork to make some designs in the potatoes as well.
Cook in 400 degree oven until bubbling and brown (about 30 minutes). Broil for last few minutes if necessary to brown.
