Shepard's Pie

Another delicious recipe from!! This is a little late for St. Patty's day, but definitely worth making any day of the year!! Check out Iowa Girl's blog for photos and step by step instructions, but here is the recipe for easy access. :)

Serves 5-6

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

4 cups mashed potatoes
garlic salt
1 lb ground beef
1/3 cup onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth
2 cups frozen vegetable medley
salt and pepper

Brown ground beef, onions and garlic in a large skillet on med-high heat. When meat is completely cooked, stir in flour and cook for 1-2 minutes.

Stir in tomato paste, worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and chicken broth. Simmer for 5-6 minutes or until sauce is thick. Turn the heat off and stir in frozen vegetables and salt and pepper, to taste.

Pour beef mixture into a large, oven proof casserole dish. Top with mashed potatoes and smooth with a spatula. Sprinkle garlic salt on top of mashed potatoes.

Place casserole dish on a large sheet pan (in case the sauce overflows) and bake for 20-30 minutes, or until top is golden brown. Ladle and serve!


  1. Oops! It should be chicken broth not canned chicken! :) I was reading through the recipe and was quite confused so I had to check it out. Sounds really yummy.

  2. Hahaha....thanks for catching that! I should always proofread, but I don't. :) Have a great day!
