Shepherd's Pie V Recipe
Ground beef and frozen vegetables are seasoned and topped with mashed potatoes. This is a handy, quick dinner casserole!
This easy shepherd's pie is a layered casserole of ground beef and veggies in a homemade gravy. It's topped with Cheddar cheese mashed potatoes.
Oh my goodness, this was terrific! I made this tonight as directed with the following exceptions: Instead of beef bouillon I used Knorr Homestyle Stock (1 beef & 1 chicken) I added 2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp rosemary, 1/4 tsp chopped garlic (the jar type), 1 whole onion instead of powder, I used about 1 1/2 cups water which I thickened a teeny bit with flour because I like gravy in my Shepherd's pie. I also added parsley & garlic. I added a few shakes of pepper but I didn't add salt which was a good thing because the Worcestershire sauce and beef/chicken broth was salty enough. I made the mashed potatoes as I usually do with butter & 18% cream and added about 1 tbsp of ranch dressing. I even added more of the frozen veggies to stretch it because I needed leftovers to make 2 frozen TV dinners with the Rubbermaid divided trays. Before putting it in the oven I put a few dollops of butter on top to help the potatoes brown. This was super yummy and we are looking forward to our homemade TV di
Shepherd's pie is pure comfort food, and this vegan version will satisfy the taste buds of the vegetarians in the crowd.
We enjoyed this recipe but must tell you two things. My family and I found it to be VERY salty even though I used the low salt boullion cubes. Therefore, we would recommend leaving out the salt AND the steak spice. Also, the recipe states that it feeds 12. This must be an error because we only fed 4 but probably could get 5 out of it.Thank you, however, for your wonderful recipes. Generally, we love them.
This is a great recipe. The only tweak I'd make to it is, first, flavor the mashed potatoes like you would normally with butter, garlic salt & pepper. This way the potatoes aren't bland. Second, I'd use less rosemary. It was a bit too strong, half a teaspoon should do nicely. Update 2015: I've been making this for years and apparently misunderstood "steak seasoning" to mean steak sauce like A1. So I recommend putting a tablespoon or two of steak sauce instead of dry steak seasoning. I've never had any complaints, only praise for my shepherd's pie.
This was a quick and simple dinner. It was very good. I read the other reviews and followed the advice to leave out the salt and steak seasoning.
This recipe turned out very well, but was also VERY salty. Next time, I probably won't use the salt or the steak seasoning, but otherwise this recipe is very good.
The secret ingredients in this recipe for the classic comfort food shepherd's pie are American cheese and cream-style corn.
This dish takes some time to prepare, but it well worth the effort. It's an excellent vegetarian alternative at any holiday meal.
