It's Ok. But the Irish Rovers Shepherd's Pie on this site is much better.
I thought this was pretty bland. The Irish Rovers Shepherd's Pie on this site is 100% better.
According to my English husband and several of my English friends, this is a "cottage pie" because Shepherd's pie is made with lamb. This is very close to my "cottage pie".
My husband and I loved this. I did make some changes though. I diced the carrots, added peas and mushrooms. When the wine was evaporated, I stirred in two tablespoons of flour, then added beef broth. It cooked down very nicely. Will definitely make this again.
So I am very new to cooking and I made this. The wife and kids LOVED it!
It may indeed be delicious, but it simply is not shepherd's pie. It is cottage pie.
Delicious. I might use a piping bag for potatoes to pump up the presentation.
Surprisingly tasty shepherds pie
