"This was very tasty. I didn't find it necessary to simmer the beef mixture for an hour. I simmered it for only 10 minutes to speed up the process and it worked out just fine. Tip - start your potatoes while you're simmering the beef mixture otherwise you'll be waiting on them when the rest is ready to go in the oven. I would make this again."

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1 Cooking spray
1 large Onion; finely chopped
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
4 ounces mushrooms; diced (I used a mix of shiitake and portabello)
1 1/2 pounds extra lean ground beef
1 cup beef broth
2 small bay leaves
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary; minced
1 1/2 pounds potatoes; cut into chunks (I used new potatoes)
1 tablespoon fresh Italian parsley; chopped
2 tablespoons skim milk
Salt and pepper; to taste

Original recipe makes 4

Servings  

Preparation

Heat large saute pan over medium high heat. Spray pan liberally with cooking spray, then add 3/4 of the chopped onion, mixed vegetables and mushrooms. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2-3 minutes.

Add beef to pan and cook until browned. Add stock, bay leaves, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce and season with salt and pepper.

Simmer gently for about an hour, until liquid is absorbed and thickened. Remove bay leaves, add fresh rosemary and stir to distribute. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. If desired, spray a baking dish with non stick spray and transfer beef and veggies mixture. You may skip this step if using an oven safe pan.

Cook potato with remaining onion in boiling salted water until fork tender. Drain, then return pot to stove and stir, allowing any remaining moisture to evaporate. Mash potatoes, adding milk, parsley, salt and pepper to taste.

Spread potatoes over beef mixture. Use fork to create a pleasing pattern, then bake 25-30 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown. If potatoes are reluctant to brown, broil briefly until browned. Watch carefully to prevent burning.

Very good, we added a little A-1 to our servings, but it was good either way. Thinking about making a bigger batch next time and putting a couple in the freezer :)

Have tried multiple Shepard pie recipes and this is by far the best. Thinking about using beef pieces next time.

Most CP recipes don't add tomato paste and Wostershire sauce. Those 2 'guys' make the recipe IMHO.

Very nice, although I did double the tomato paste, cooked the meat for only 20 minutes and served it in meal size bowls.
