Shepherd's Pie
By
There are many different ways to make this dish, and not just on St. Patrick's Day. In England and Ireland, shepherd's pie is always based on lamb (hence "shepherd"), while ground-beef versions are sometimes called cottage pie instead. At Solas, our authentic Irish pub in Boston, Mass., we serve both lamb and beef versions.  The recipe below calls for the pie to be baked in one large dish, in the traditional manner, but at the restaurant we the serve it in individual portions. We’ll heat up the cast-iron dishes to 400 degrees, add the ingredients, and then broil the top so a crust forms. That way, it arrives to our guests simmering hot.

Shepherd's Pie
At $1.66 per serving, this is an inexpensive, not to mention simplified, version of the traditional minced lamb classic. It's also not too different from the Shepherd's Pie my mother used to put together on a cold night; hers had cheese on top but the creamy mashed potatoes make this filling dish rich enough.

In the English tradition, a cook uses leftover beef or lamb from last night's roast to make this hearty casserole. For the most basic shepherd's pie, you sauté some fresh vegetables, add in meat taken off the bone, and then add any jus or gravy to thicken up the filling and make it a little saucy. You put this filling into an oven-safe casserole dish, top it off with mashed potatoes, dot with butter, and bake until the topping gets a nice roasted brown hue. What you don't know about shepherd's pie is that it is the perfect dish in which to use those Thanksgiving leftovers because there is no set recipe. Your shepherd's pie is based on what's available in the fridge the morning after Turkey Day. Personally, I like to go with very traditional flavors on Thanksgiving, and then go a little cross-cultural with the leftovers. So here is an Asian-inspired take on Shepherd's pie.

This hearty casserole is a favorite in Ireland, where it was whipped up during the coldest of winters. As its name suggests, it was originally made with lamb or mutton, but these days you may be more familiar with it being made with beef. For a healthier version, try using ground chicken.Click here for more of the 101 Best Slow Cooker Recipes

My dad was an excellent cook. This was one of my favorites from the time I was very little-in fact, it was one of the first things he made for me when I came home on leave from the Army. My son loved it as a child and it is still one of my major comfort foods.
