Shepard’s Pie is a favourite comfort dish for my family. It is very easy to see why. It combines the various comforts of mashed potatoes, gravy, ground beef, vegetables, and serves them up in one helping. That is if you can only have one helping. Our home it is a standard two visits to the dish for all.
This version uses a tomato and red wine based gravy. We whip the potatoes and add cheddar cheese to take it to next level awesome, and serve this along side a fresh salad.
Because I use beef, this is technically a “Cottage Pie” as Shepard’s Pie uses lamb traditionally. (The Shepard herds the lambs. It makes sense.) However; my mom always referred to this as Shepard’s Pie and who am I to confuse things. Just know that you can use ground beef or lamb.
