St Shepherd's Pie

St Shepherd's Pie

My name is Bagel. I am a student who loves nostalgia and I use the recipe when I am starting to miss home. Me and mom would always make green shepherds pie for St Patrick's day so I named the recipe ‘St Shepherd’s Pie'. 


  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup of frozen veggies
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 11/2 pounds russet potatoes
  • 11/2 pound ground beef or ground lamb
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoon flour
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce 
  • 2  teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1 teaspoon xawaash


  1. Peel and cut potatoes into fourths, place in a medium pot and cover with cold water, set on high heat. Cover until boiling, once boiled, decrease the heat and wait until the potatoes are soft. Once tender remove water and put in a different bowl to mash butter in microwave for 35 sec until melted then add butter, salt and pepper and xawaash to mashed potatoes and continue mashing until smooth.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.
  3. Place oil into a medium large pan and set to medium high heat. Once oil simmers add onion and saute just until they begin to color, now add garlic and ground meat. Sprinkle meat with flour and coat, wait a minute then add tomato paste and chicken broth, worcestershire, rosemary, thyme veggies, then stir. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly.
  4. Spread photos evenly into a medium to large dish topped with the meat mixture, then potatoes again (do this until the dish is full you can also add cheese on top) bake for 25 minutes until potatoes are brown. Remove to a cooling rack for at least 15 minutes before serving.
  5. Plate and enjoy!
