Jo's COOK BOOK #3 Shepherd's Pie Brit Style


How to make a Shepherd's Pie Brit style, with USA ingredients.

  • Potatoes
  • Carrots, sliced or diced depending on your preference.
  • Frozen Peas, defrosted
  • One Small Onion, finely chopped
  • Minced Meat (Ground Beef)
  • One sachet of McCormick Beef Stew Mix (In the UK, I would use OXO stock cubes, Bisto Browning Power & Celery Powder)

Before you begin, put your cooker on to pre-heat to 380.
  • Peel, wash and split in smaller portions for quicker boil - Potatoes.

In a skillet (frying pan).

  • Season with salt and pepper to preference.
  • Simmer for ten minutes, or until sauce has thickened.
  • Add peas and cook for a further two minutes.
  • Transfere mixture to a 9 by 13 baking dish. You should leave 1/3 space for your potatoes.
Once your potatoes have boiled.

  • Spread the mash over your meat mixture.

Bake at 380 for 40 minutes.
