This is a cottage pie as it uses beef not a Shepherds pie which uses lamb.

This is the best recipe I've tried so far. My son, who is not a fan of this dish, had 2nd helpings & he kept saying it's delicious!! Only difference I did for this recipe: I add red pepper chili flakes becos both husband & myself loves a littles spicyness. I also substitute the canned vege with cauliflower & broccoli as I do not buy canned vege... This recipe is a keeper. Now I can throw away my old recipe & use this permanently... Thank you!!!

This is the BEST recipe out there!!! My husband loves it and I just add a frozen bag of corn instead of the green beans. I have so far made this several times and I just wanted to leave a review on how easy this is to make. The worchester sauce is what I think makes the dish a hit.<br/>Thanks for posting such a fabulous recipe!!!
