Barbecue Shepherd’s Pie
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min.
EXCELLENT. We liked this a lot. Will definitely have again
This is a refreshing twist on the usual Shepherd's Pie. I used ground beef instead of turkey and used frozen mixed vegetables instead of the carrots and peas. Lastly, I used instant mashed potatoes on top. My husband absolutely loved it!!!! I'll surely be making this again!
gmh1944, rebelwithoutaclue actually HAS a clue. Shepherds pie IS traditionally made with lamb. If it's not lamb, it's not a real Shepherds Pie. The entire USA seems to have confused Cottage Pie with Shepherds Pie.
Quick and tasty. I will try adding cheese to the top of the potatoes next time.
This recipe was pleasantly surprising. I'm used to "traditional shepherd's pie" but I liked this BBQ version - and my husband loved it more! I made homemade mashed potatoes and threw a bit of cheddar cheese on top. As others have said, you could easily use other ingredients to try new varieties!
This was good as written. So many things to try with it. rebelwithoutaclue, your user name says it all. How about try this recipe & rate or don't try it & find something else to complain about! Like many others I am tired of those that complain about a recipe & they haven't even tried it! Notice in most cases the rest of the reviews are good too very good. Says a lot doesn't it?
Try using a small can of tomato paste with 1 cup of water. It reduces the sweet flavor. Also adds a little bit more moisture. I also added cheese bacon and scallions on the top. Was very good. !
This was so good, I can't wait to make it again. We used fresh carrots instead of frozen peas and carrots only because we didn't have them. We used reg barbecue sauce instead of honey barbecue sauce. Can't wait to make this for my father.
I made mashed potatoes rather than buying them. I also put cheese on top. It seemed a little dry but still good.
Awesome take on traditional Shepherd's Pie! My husband loved it. I did use instant mashed potatoes though instead of refrigerated. It turned out wonderful and I had it on hand.
