Shepherd's Pie // Tried and Tasty

Shepherds Pie // The always delicious Shepherd's Pie is a delicious way to enjoy dinner. This nearly one pot meal is loved by the whole family. Add a side salad and some crusty bread, you've got a great meal. | Tried and Tasty One of my good buddies Ryan gave this Shepherd’s Pie recipe to me. When we worked together we were constantly swapping recipes. My favorite is when he would come in to work and tell us about what he made the night before – if he didn’t have any food/groceries he would call it “ghetto cooking” because he would just throw random ingredients together from the cupboard and it would turn out awesome! This is one I’d never had before he told me about it, and it’s ended up being one of my favs!

    I remember my Mom made this when growing up, SOOOO good!!!
    I improvised a little bit, as that is my nature.. I had prbly 2+ pounds of Costco ground beef which I had frozen. Yes, that’s a lot!! I browned the beef with one large diced onion and some garlic paste.
    Once browned, I drained off as much liquid as I could. I added 2 cans undiluted tomato soup, 2 cans drained green beans, 2 cans drained sweet corn. To season, I added some Jane’s Mixed Up Salt seasoning, pepper, 2/3 cup red wine, 2 tablespoons beef bouillon, a few shakes worcestershire sauce, and a little cornstarch to thicken. I cooked on the stovetop to thicken it up some. Then, I put into my Mom’s old casserole she would always bake it in. As a shortcut, I topped the beef mixture with Bob Evans mashed potatoes mixed with a little shredded colby-jack cheese, as suggested.
    I sprinkled paprika on top like Mom used to do. The end result is soooo 😋 yummy!!! Comfort food!!! So many variations you can do…

    You seemed to have forgotten the tomato soup direction.
    So for ask you other readers out there thinks is what I did lol.. I sauteed onion and a couple garlic cloves then cooked the meat. ( read down a couple sentences real quick). After I mixed in those veggies I dumped the thick can of tomato soup base in and mixed it up. Seasonings used while cooking the burger meat: ras en hanout , salt, pepper. All to taste .then I put that all in the casserole dish. Topped it with more cheese shreds.

    15 minutes in the oven :)

    For the potatoes i added dried parsley, salt, pepper, and nutritional yeast. Added that to the dish and added more cheese then some pepper and garlic!
