Better Shepherd's Pie

Recipe by Ash Hills

A recipe straight out of Ireland. My mom used to make this at least once a month!

I cooked this today for a mid-day supper, exactly as specified in the recipe, and it turned out pretty good. My mother has made this in her home for years, and it was a bit more runny than hers, so I suggest using a little less gravy than the two cups, but other than that it really hit the spot for my family. Thanks.
