Top Review by Bev I Am

I've loved Shepherd's Pie since I was a little girl, and have been looking for a good recipe for it almost as long. I think my search has ended. This was delicious! I did cut the allspice down to 1/4 tsp and added 3 tbsp flour to the meat (there was no amount listed for the flour addition). My husband was pleased with he results and so was I!
