Real Food Shepherds Pie

Real Food Shepherds Pie

1 1/2 lb ground beef (or venison)

3 Tbsp butter or oil for frying

1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

2 eggs, separated

1/2 cup butter

8 potatoes, cooked and mashed

2 onions

1 Tbsp ketchup

4 cups homemade beef stock

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 tsp garlic powder (or 1 clove garlic)

Sea salt & fresh pepper to taste

Parmesan cheese to top

Step One: Brown beef and onion in butter or oil. Mix in ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt & pepper. Add beef stock and cook covered for 15-20 minutes. Now is the time to taste it and make sure its perfect.

Step Two: Beat egg yolks until light. In a separate bowl beat egg white until stiff.

Step Three: Mix egg yolks, cream, 1/2 c butter and garlic into the mashed potatoes. Fold in the egg whites.

Step Four: Put meat mixture in bottom of large casserole dish. Top with mashed potato mixture. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Step Five: Bake 350 degrees for 40 minutes, until puffed and brown.

This is a huge hit in my house and I always make a triple batch. We eat one and the other two go in the freezer. You can freeze it before baking also, which makes it a very fast dinner during the week. I have also made this in individual lunch sized pirex dishes and baked them that way, then you have a fast and easy lunch food.
