Recipe by AustinsAm
I got this recipe from a Taste of Home cookbook. It is a bit time consuming, but worth the effort! My husband suggested putting in some veggies, because what is Shepherd's pie without them? I used fresh carrots and corn, which I cooked beforehand. I also used regular mustard instead of Dijon, since that's what I had on hand. I used pork chops cooked in the crockpot with a little broth.
- 2 lbs potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1⁄3 cup heavy whipping cream
- 4 tablespoons butter, divided
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can beef broth
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 4 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, divided
- 2 1⁄2 cups cubed cooked pork
