Shepards pie instructions

  1. Place the peeled and cut potatoes in medium sized pot. Cover potatoes with enough cold water and add salt. On high heat bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, and cook potatoes until tender..
  2. While the potatoes cook, melt the butter in a large sauté pan on medium heat. Add the chopped onions and cook until translucent tender (roughly 6 to 10 minutes). Tip: if adding vegetables, include them according to their cooking time. Carrots should be cooked along with the onions, as they take as long as the onions do..
  3. Once onions and carrots are cooked to the pan or wok, add mince meat, Worcestershire sauce, stock/broth, tomato purée, herbs, paprika, cumin and nutmeg powder (optional) and season with salt and pepper. Stir frequently and cook until no longer pink. When the meat is fully cooked add the peas and cook for about a minute as peas take little time to cook. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes. Tip: if the pie filling looks dry add more stock/broth to prevent meat drying out..
