Rachael Ray had an awesome looking one on food tv yesterday. Check food tv.com (I think) I personally don't have a recipe for that pie, but I thought I'd steer you in the direction of finding one. Hers took 30 min to make, looked yummy.

Did you ever find your recipe? I'm british and grew up on this stuff. Don't really need a recipe if you want REAL shepherds pie (as most british food can be rather bland) Let me know...

well my understanding is real shepards pie is lamb, but the americanized version (I make both and like them both equal)  is simple...

beef cooked then drained, add some of your favorite beer ( i use everything from guiness to pumpkin beer to newcastle) and some wostshire and let it simmer a bit, if you add too much beer and it is soupy, add a little flour, corn startch or other thickener.

toss in some corn, carrots, peas, or whatever floats your boat, put in a baking dish....

on top make some mashed potatoes, nice and lumpy or creamy, again how you like it....smear that on top.....(now this trick I learned from Nigella LAwson) run a fork over the top to make lots of lil ridges....shave some butter and add that to the top...oh and d not use instant taters, it is just kind of weird!

pop into an over (about 400 or broil if you can broil in the oven) and let the top get a bit crisp and brown...the oven part is to add crip to the top a bit and that is all, you don't have to do this step if you don't want or are too hungry to wait to eat it!!

take it out and go to town

that is the american version I was taught and then added too over time..if you want a healthier version use groud turkey.....

now I have also made it with lamb and some slightly dif ingredients, but  ususlly when americans think of shepards pie, that is what they get...

the irish version with lamb I got from a friends mom who is irish and that was how her mom always made it there....slight differences, but I find no matter how I am shown, I always alter it to be my own and it is pretty darned good....or so everyone who eats it says!

Real Shepherd's Pie is made from cold mutton leftovers which are ground and topped with mashed potato. It can also be made with ground beef then called Cottage Pie.

Unlike most pies where the meat cooks in the pie as it is baked, the ingredients for this so-called 'pie' are all pre-cooked.

You will need about 1 lb of ground meat
1 onion
2 pre-cooked carrots (or other veg.)
a little flour (for thickening, this is optional. A gravy mix could be substituted)
about 6 or 8 potatoes
butter and milk

If using a gravy packet, get that ready. I usually use two if I'm using them to save time.

Fry the meat in a little oil so that it is browned. Finely chop the onion and mix it in. Season with salt and pepper. Add some Worchestershire sauce to taste if desired. Add a little water and the flour at this point if you are NOT using gravy packets and allow to cook and thicken for about 15 minutes. Add the veg and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes or until desired thickness is achieved.

Meanwhile, prepare your mashed potates.

Now, place your meat in a casserole dish. Pour in the gravy (if using packets) and top with mashed potatoes. Using a fork, 'rake' the potato topping to create ridges.

Place in a 400-425 oven for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are a nice golden brown and serve!

intead of the gravy that is where i use beer and a lil thickening...

so far I have not found a beer that does not work....

and have even substituted sweet potatoes instead of reg potatoes when I ran out one time making it!

made with pumpkin beer it was really great!

and this is a great meal for having lots of left overs....make a lot and eat on it for a few days....

I'll have to try it with the pumpkin beer and sweet potatoes, that sounds GREAT! One of the great things about many english dishes is that they can have so many variations because they often start out so bland anyway. Many are still around from war time when ingredients were very limited to begin with (rations.)
