All that grating was more than I planned on, the end result was delicious. I think the reason for the onions to be grated rather than chopped is it helps to thicken the sauce so it isn't soupy.
My family of 4 really liked this recipe. I added a half can of peas as a layer before mashed potatoes, & next time I will add a can of diced tomatoes. I will fix it again. :-)
Very good. Has room to add additional ingredients. Make it often.
Tasty. Followed other reviewers advice and added spoon of flour. Meat sauce must be quite reduced. Fried carrots were tasty. We did three carrots for two - would have eaten more! Will cook again.
This is a great recipe! Awesome flavors! Thanks Diana.
Gordon Ramsey would never put beef in a SHEPHERDS PIE!!! it is called shepherds pie for a reason, it is made with lamb.
MMMMM!!! Even my super picky toddlers wanted more. My husband said that the leftovers were great.
Delicious! But didn't get the watuby sauce or something.
Delicious! I used catsup instead of tomato paste, and frozen peas and carrots instead of the grated carrot, and it was still terrific. I also used beef broth. I was worried it would be too rich, but it turned out great. I think it is important to really reduce down the meat and wine untill it really is almost gone. Otherwise, it will have too much liquid and not thicken up nicely.
Good flavor, but the meat had far too much liquid. I also added mushrooms to the meat, which added a little more to it.
