Unbelievable! Tastes almost like my mothers shepherds pie! but I made the mistake by using extra lean ground beef, came out a little chewy. but other than that the pie tastes great!! thanks for the recipe. will be looking trough more of your recipes!
Really enjoyed this. Made it for the second time today. I don't know about everyone else but I used only 1 pound of ground beef and put a little extra tomato paste in. Also, I had no heavy cream so I just used milk in the potatoes. I am sure the cream would make it taste better, but it tastes great the way we made it. Also I used just a drained can of canned peas. I usually hate canned peas but it tastes great in this dish. I think this is one of those "hard to mess up" dishes.
This was REALLY good, even with a few not-so-great substitutions--instant mashed potatoes w/ onion/garlic instead of real, rosemary instead of thyme... This made a really filling and hearty meal, and it earned good reviews from my family!
