Yes you read that this recipe right, it is the Best Shepherd’s Pie! Made with real carrots, sweet corn and frozen peas. Along with perfectly seasoned ground lamb and beef, this pie is sure to please the whole family.
Shepherds pie can be made all in one dish. That is if your using the type of dish that can go from the stovetop to the oven like I have here with my Rock Dutch Oven.
Otherwise you will prepare it first on the stove then move it to a separate baking dish to finish it in the oven. Not to hard and worth the effort because this recipe is something you will not forget anytime soon.
You are sure to taste the difference with this recipe here, since it uses two kinds of meat. Creating the best of what is know to some as a “Cottage pie” which is typically made with just beef and “Shepherd’s pie” which is made with minced lamb.
I grew up eating the cottage pie, which is made with beef instead of lamb. Traditional Shepherds pie originated from Ireland and is made with just lamb. So even though you may have thought that you were enjoying a Shepherds pie in past, it may have been the ladder.
I really like to use both meats to create this recipe and anyone who has ever tried it has said to me “this is the best” shepherds pie they have ever tasted!
Just make sure you are using fresh carrots not frozen, there is a huge difference in taste and texture with the fresh. Also use fresh rosemary and thyme if you can it just enhanced the flavors that much more.
Okay so first you will want to start by taking the easy way to cooking this recipe of course. And that is by skipping the peeling of the potatoes and boil them instead. This allows for you to run them under cold water once cooked tender and peel them by hand. From there you will mash them with some whole milk, sour cream and an egg yolk.
Now the hardest part is done, next you simply are going to saute the two meats in a large pan for roughly 5 minutes before adding in the chopped onion, garlic and spices. The pan I use is the rock its a large dutch oven type pan that goes from the stove to the oven.
