Shepherd's Poy

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Millereg

The shepherd was allegedly seen doing inappropriate things with the sheep, so he was temporarily reassigned to a herd of cattle while he underwent therapy, and therefore the only thing he could bring home to the cook was beef.

Very good recipe with a distinct, traditional Scottish background. This is a sure crowd pleaser on those crisp, fall days. Thanks Mille!
