Made it several times - consistently turned out to be very good. Everyone liked it and asked for seconds. When I made it for one evening and fewer people came than expected, I froze portions and stored them for later use as a quick meal - and it was great reheated in the microwave.
My husband and I made this recipe last night, with a few modifications to suit our taste and time constraints. First, we used instant garlic mashed potatoes to cut down on time. Second, we added chopped onion to the beef mixture. And third, we added some spices (salt, pepper, and garlic salt, I think). It was very good, but I think next time we will substitute Worcestershire sauce for the ketchup and make sure to cook the vegetables a little longer (they were a little under-done). But overall, it was delicious and very satisfying!
Your all correct about the spices...I added salt and pepper as well as some chopped onion to the meat mixture. I also used frozen peas...We eat shephards pie all the time...actually I usually use a mix from another company which is very hard to find..I dont think I will ever use the mix again...This was very good....I knew to spice it up as we are big fans of this dish.....Definately worth trying....
Could use some extra spices. I used fat free sour cream and ground sirloin. Next time I would like to try ground turkey.
Very good recipe. Very easy to add other ingredients to spice it up a bit. I was looking for a low calorie and filling recipe and this one was it!
Very good recipe. I added more seasoning to both the potatoes and the meat mixture for more flavor. My family loved it. :)
This recipe was very good, but it needs a bit more seasoning.The second time I made this I added 1/4 cup worcestershire sauce to the meat mixture. It made it much more flavorful..
This was a good, basic recipe. Next time I would add more seasoning to both the potatoes and the meat.
This is much better than the Shepherd's Pie I've been throwing together. I followed the recipe, but added a bit of Gravy Master and Adobo to the beef after I drained the fat, since many comments about more seasoning. I probably added a bit extra ketchup and broth and it came out very moist and the cheezy garlic potatoes were just the right finish. I wanted to stay away from frozen mixed veg and just sauted up what I had handy fresh - some onion, garlic, chopped carrot & celery, and just a handleful of some frozen peas. It was great the next day too - reheats nicely in the microwave.
Shepard's Pie uses ground lamb. Cottage Pie, for which you have provided a recipe, is made using ground beef. They both come from England.
