Many cooks use ground beef in shepherd pie. You should actually use lamb; when cooked with beef it would be called cottage pie. Some who use lamb will use ground lamb. When I do it, I prefer to slow roast a trimmed, boneless leg until it is fall apart tender then shred it. I have also cut up the leg and stewed it with the veggies.
In this recipe, I have left out all but the salt and pepper. If you want to add other spices, go for it. That is up to your taste. Besides, it is a dish from the British Isles and so can be served quite plain.
