Shepherd’s Pie

Hearty ground beef is browned and seasoned with aromatics including fresh veggies and herbs, then red wine and beef broth are added and it’s simmered and reduced to a light gravy. And then comes my favorite part – its topped and finished with the most heavenly mashed potatoes! This has honestly got to be the coziest meal-in-one out there. And while it may not be the fastest easiest dinner it’s worth every minute of prep and patience!

Comforting Shepherd’s Pie! This incredibly hearty, restaurant worthy shepherd’s pie recipe does not disappoint! A flavorful beef, veggie and gravy filling is made in a cast iron pan and layered with fluffy, perfectly creamy mashed potatoes and then it’s broiled until golden brown. This is how you do chilly day dinners!

You’ll love that this is just old-fashioned, cast iron cooked, classic comfort food that reminds you of home.
