Oh my goodness! I can't believe this was so delicious! I was looking for a recipe to use up a leftover pork roast. I had all the ingredients on hand for this so I figured I'd give it a try. I also added 9 ounces of frozen corn in with the meat. I was expecting a good, filling meal. What I got was a meal so delicious that I can't wait till tomorrow when I can eat the leftovers while DH is at work! This doesn't taste like your typical bland shepherd's pie, this is fantastic!
