Mouthwatering Shepherd's Pie: Perfect for Family Dinners

Shepherd's pie is a classic comfort food that originated in the United Kingdom.

Shepherd’s Pie Recipe is traditionally made with ground lamb or beef, vegetables, and mashed potatoes. Our recipe, however, uses ground beef for a hearty and savory dish.

  • Preparation time: 15 minutes
  • Cooking time: 50 minutes
  • Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes


  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 4 cups mashed potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F.

  2. In a large skillet, brown the ground beef over medium-high heat until fully cooked. Drain any excess fat from the skillet and then add in the diced onions, carrots, celery, and minced garlic. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. Add in the tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, and beef broth to the skillet. Stir everything together and then let the mixture simmer for 10-15 minutes until it thickens and the flavors have melded together.

  4. In a separate pot, boil peeled and chopped potatoes until they are tender. Drain the water and then add in the unsalted butter, whole milk, salt, and pepper. Mash everything together until it is smooth and creamy.

  5. Transfer the beef mixture to a 9x13 inch baking dish. Spread the mashed potatoes over the top of the beef mixture, making sure to cover the entire surface.

  6. Use a fork to create ridges on the surface of the mashed potatoes. This will help to create a crispy crust when baked.

  7. Bake the Shepherd's Pie in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy on top.

  8. Let the dish cool for a few minutes before serving.
