Tested & Perfected Recipes

Shepherd's Pie

The epitome of simple, homey comfort food – and one of my husband’s favorite things that I cook during the winter – shepherd’s pie is a casserole consisting of creamy mashed potatoes atop a rich and bubbly stew. Originating from sheep country in the United Kingdom and Ireland, the dish is traditionally made with lamb but, nowadays, you’re just as likely to see it made with beef (though this version is often referred to as cottage pie).

Shepherd’s pie was originally conceived as a way to use up leftover pot roast or stew, so you’ll find some recipes that call for slow-cooking cuts of meat. But most modern versions are made with ground meat, which cooks much faster. Either way, shepherd’s pie is a lazy weekend type of recipe. It’s not hard, but it takes a good hour and a half start to finish. For this version, you begin by making a batch of mashed potatoes and setting those aside, then you make a flavorful ground beef stew with bacon, vegetables, and wine. At this point, you can either spread the mashed potatoes over the stew right in the skillet (as I do) or assemble the layers in a separate casserole dish for baking.

How To Make Shepherd’s Pie

Before starting with the mashed potatoes, it’s important to tenderize the beef. To do so, place the beef, baking soda, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and 1 tablespoon of water in a medium bowl.

Mash with your hand to combine, and set aside for 20 minutes. As it rests, the baking soda raises the pH of the meat, helping to lock in moisture and making the beef tender.

While the meat tenderizes, place the potatoes in medium saucepan and add enough cold water just to cover them. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, until the potatoes are soft and fork-tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

Drain the potatoes and return to the saucepan.

Place the pan over medium heat and stir the potatoes with a wooden spoon or potato masher until they are dry and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the sour cream, butter, half & half, and the remaining teaspoon of salt.

Shepherd's Pie

Servings: 4 to 6
Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Cook Time: 1 Hour
Total Time: 1 Hour 30 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds 90% lean ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 2-1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1-in chunks
  • 1/4 cup half & half
  • 4 oz bacon, diced (about 3 slices thick-cut bacon)
  • 2 medium yellow onions, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1-1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and set an oven rack in the middle position.
  2. Place the beef, baking soda, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and 1 tablespoon of water in a medium bowl. Mash with your hand to combine. Set aside for 20 minutes.
  3. While the meat tenderizes, place the potatoes in medium saucepan and add just enough cold water to cover them. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, until the potatoes are soft and fork-tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return to the saucepan. Place the pan over medium heat and stir the potatoes with a wooden spoon or potato masher until they are dry and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and add the sour cream, butter, half & half, and the remaining teaspoon of salt. Using a potato masher, stir and mash the potatoes with the other ingredients until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary. Set the mashed potatoes aside.
  4. Heat a 12-in oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook, stirring frequently, until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate, leaving the fat in the pan. Add the onions and carrots to the bacon fat and cook, stirring frequently, until softened and starting to brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute more. Add the wine and increase the heat to high; bring to a boil, scraping any brown bits from the bottom of the pan, until the liquid is reduced by about half. Add the flour and stir until dissolved. Add the reserved ground beef mixture, tomato paste, and Worcestershire sauce; continue cooking on high heat, breaking the meat apart with a spoon, until the meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth; bring to a simmer, reduce the heat to low, and cook, scraping any brown bits from the bottom of the pan, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the thyme, pepper, peas, and reserved bacon, and cook until the peas are warmed through. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary.
  5. Dollop the mashed potatoes evenly over the filling. Use a rubber or offset spatula to spread the potatoes evenly over the stew and all the way to the edges of the skillet. Drag a fork across the top to make ridges. Place the skillet on a baking sheet or large sheet of foil to catch any drips and bake until the filling is hot, the topping is lightly browned, and the edges are bubbly, about 30 minutes. (For more color, turn on the broiler and broil for the last 5 minutes, or until the top is golden.) Sprinkle with chives and serve.
  6. Note: If you don’t have an oven-safe skillet, you can transfer the meat mixture to a 2.5-qt casserole dish and then spread the mashed potatoes overtop.
  7. Make-Ahead Instructions: The stew portion of the recipe can be made several days ahead of time and refrigerated. Before assembling the pie, reheat the stew, adding a little broth if necessary if it seems dry. The mashed potatoes should be made right before assembling and baking the pie.

Reviews & Comments

  • I made this for St. Patrick’s Day this year as an alternative to the usual Corned beef/cabbage. There is a depth of flavor to this recipe that makes the outcome very tasty. We are a low-carb household, so I skipped the mashed potato topping (even though it looks delicious). I served a cauliflower mash on the side for me and my husband melted cheddar cheese over his portion (he puts cheese on EVERYTHING). I will make this again and it won’t need to be an Irish holiday.

  • You did it again, Jenn! This shepherd’s pie is so delicious. I made a few substitutions: I only had 1lb. beef so I reduced the baking soda and subbed 5 oz. chopped shiitake mushrooms and 2 chopped celery ribs to make up for the shortage. I made this in my cast iron skillet. The stew is to die for, and your mashed potatoes on the top are incredible. My 2-year old and mother-in-law both enjoyed it thoroughly! Will surely make again; and thank you for your handy tips regarding baking it on a cookie sheet so it catches the spills. This will keep well for days!

  • Hi Jenn, my husband and I have gotten tired of corned beef for St. Patrick’s day so I decided to make your Shepards pie.
    It was delicious!! We both loved it. I tried a Shepards pie recipe probably 25 years ago and didn’t like it at all. So, I was skeptical. Your recipe was delicious. My husband wants it in our regular rotation. Thank you so much.

  • I have made Shepard’s Pie many times and even played around with creating my own recipe for this dish. After loving Jen’s beef stew, I decided to give her recipe a try. This recipe is by far the best Shepard’s Pie I have ever had. The rest of the family agreed. The steps for putting this one together are a little different since you do not brown the meat first. I had to double check the recipe to make sure I got that step correct. It takes a little longer to make this one, but I will be throwing all my other Shepard’s Pie recipes out.

  • Hey Jenn, made this recipe yesterday…amazing. The only change I made was to use cornstarch instead of flour. The baking soda method was new to me. The beef was melt in your mouth. Can I use this baking soda method when making meatballs? If so, can I use it if I use beef with veal for meatballs? Thank-you for all your wonderful recipes & taking the time to answer questions.

    • Hi Debbie, Glad you enjoyed it! I’ve never tried the baking soda trick with meatballs, as breadcrumbs/cheese/eggs are usually added, which makes tenderizing unnecessary. I don’t think it’d hurt though if you wanted to give it a go.

  • I just made this and it was wonderful! The sauce is rich and tasty and the potatoes are extra good because of the sour cream.

  • Perfect comfort food for a Sunday evening. Made as written except made the potatoes with a 1/3ish cup of sour cream, 3T butter and 2T of 1% milk. It filled my 12″ All-Clad skillet to the top and I am glad I put the recommended cookie sheet under the pan in the oven because it did bubble over a bit. Note; there are only 2 of us and we have about 3 servings leftover which is not a bad thing since I expect it will reheat nicely and make an easy weeknight meal.

  • I made this and it was delicious. I would call it a Cottage Pie.

    I was surprised to see it’s almost identical to The Shepherd’s Pie everyone loves that I’ve been making for years. The only difference is I use lamb, I don’t use the bacon, and I use fresh rosemary (about a heaping teaspoon) instead of thyme. I also like to sprinkle some raw diced onions on top of the mixture before adding the potatoes. I think it adds a nice texture and flavor.

    Thanks for all your wonderful recipes. Some, like your beef stew, have become my favorites!

          • Just made this with pureed cauliflower on top instead of mashed potatoes and it held up in the oven just fine! Love the recipe, super tasty!
