I called this recipe Shepherd’s Pie. But, I wrote the recipe so that you could use ground beef or ground lamb.
I typically use ground beef because it is widely available. But, for a special occasion, like St. Patricks day, I would use ground lamb.
First I peel potatoes and chop them, get them boiling. (5 lb bag)
Then I start browning a pound and a half of ground beef with salt, pepper and minced garlic
I add chopped onions and shredded carrots about half way through browning. *
Then I drain my potatoes while the beef continues to cook covered in order to make the onions and carrots soft.
Lid makes this process faster.
Everyone does their mashed potatoes their own way but I use salt, pepper, minced garlic, one stick of butter and about a cup of milk (sometimes more) to desired creaminess and I use an electric cake mixer to get them nice and fluffy and creamy.
