Grandma's Shepherds Pie

Submitted by: FISEFTON

Introduction

My Grandma used to make this and it has passed down through the family with each of us adding our own little bits. You can substitute the potatoes for pasta if you want to use the mince for bolognaise.

Ingredients

    Onion chopped
    2 carrots chopped
    1 can chopped tomatoes
    400g minced (ground) beef
    300ml beef stock
    1 tbsp ketchup
    1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
    4 potatoes
    small amount of milk for mashing

Directions

Preheat oven at 220C / 425F / Gas Mark 7
Fry the onion and carrot in a large frying pan (or wok) until the onion is soft. Add the beef and continue to cook stirring continuously. When the beef is browned, add the ketchup and worcestershire sauce and stir. Add the chopped tomatoes and stock, stir and leave to simmer for 15 minutes.
Whilst the beef is simmering, boil the potatoes until soft enough to mash (I use the microwave). Mash the potato using a little milk.
When cooked, place the beef in the bottom of an ovenproof dish and place the mashed potato on top.
Put the pie into the oven for 30 minutes or until brown on top.
As a variation you may wish to add other vegetables with the beef or put a little grated cheese on top of the potato before putting in the oven.

  • We thought this was FABULOUS. Very tasty. We did use fresh diced tomatoes instead of canned but I doubt that really changed it.

    Could definitely get away with 6 servings and a side dish. - 4/11/10
