Irish Shepherd's Pie
We have been delving into our Celtic roots and trying some of Scotland and Ireland's dishes. This is a traditional recipe that we've tweaked just a little to our own taste.

Preparation Time: About 1 to 1½ hours
Serves: 6
  • 1lbs of minced beef
  • 1 large chopped onion
  • ½ c. chopped carrots
  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 1 c. of beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 tblspn butter
  • 1 tablespoon of plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato puree
  • 1 teaspoon of thyme
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper
  • Peel and cut potatoes into cubes. Set aside in a large sauce pan covered in warm water.
  • In a large deep dish skillet, warm olive oil with medium heat.
  • Add onion and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the chopped carrots and continue frying for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Remove the vegetables from the skillet in a medium dish and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, cook the beef until brown. Drain and return to the skillet.
  • Gradually stir in flour and mix well with beef.
  • Add beef broth and mix well.
  • Add the tomato puree, thyme and parsley, and mix well.
  • Allow mixture to cook for 30 minutes. Stirring frequently.
  • Boil potatoes while beef is simmering. Cook for about 25 minutes until tender.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350° F
  • Remove potatoes and drain. In a medium mixing bowl, mash potatoes and add butter, salt and pepper.
  • When the meat is ready put it into a baking dish and spread the mashed potato on top.
  • Bake for 25 minutes until the potatoes are golden and crispy on top.
  • You may like to add sauteed mushrooms to the onion and carrot mix.
  • You may like to cook 2 cups of cut green beans and mix into the beef mixture before placing into the baking dish.
  • After cooking, you can top the potatoes with a sprinkle of paprika for decoration.
  • Serve warm.
