Here's How to Make the best Shepherd's Pie!

Here's How to Make
the best Shepherd's Pie!

  1. Use the freshly boiled water to re-hydrate the dehydrated items above, then discard this water.
  2. When they are sufficiently plump, put the veggies into a heavy saucepan with the heated olive oil, and cook for five minutes.
  3. Add the ground beef, and cook until the meat is browned through.
  4. Make the beef stock, add the ketchup, tomato paste, and Worcestershire Sauce; add this to the saucepan and cook for 10 minutes.
  5. In a small jug, add the flour and enough cold water to have a runny mixture (1/4 cup approx of water).
  6. In a separate pan, add the peeled and quartered potatoes, add pinch of salt, and bring to a boil and simmer until cooked through. Discard the water, add salt and pepper to taste, along with the pat of butter, and a dash of milk. We're just making regular mashed potatoes here!
  7. When the beef in step 4 has cooked through, add the flour/water mix and stir thoroughly – the beef mixture will now thicken up nicely – cook for a few minutes to make sure you don't have raw flour! Add salt/pepper to taste.
  8. Spoon out the beef mixture into four ramekins and top with the mashed potatoes.
  9. Place ramekins under the broiler (not too close!) and broil until the peaks of the mashed potatoes turn brown ... Enjoy!

*IF you need to add salt to this recipe, do so, BUT be careful NOT to over-salt as the bouillon has salt in it.
