Your traditional meat and veg mix with mashed potatoes on top. I took a few different recipes and combined them to make this one that we love! My advice is always to pre-chop everything. It makes it so much easier. This way also you can enjoy a glass of the wine you're cooking with while you're cooking!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. heat oil and cook steak in large saucepan for ten min on medium heat stirring occasionally.
  2. The goal is to cook the meat slowly to seal in the flavor.
  3. In a separate saucepan cube all potatoes, cover with water and boil until soft - usually 15 to 20 min if you cube small enough.
  4. Add all onions, carrots and scallions to the steak and saute about 5-10 minute.
  5. Add Herbs, corn to the meat/veg mixture and saute another 5 minutes.
  6. Add 1 cup wine and saute on med low heat 10-15 minute.
  7. Meanwhile drain the potatoes, mash (by hand - it tastes better) and add butter and milk to soften.
  8. Set aside.
  9. Pour Meat mixture into a casserole dish, add mashed potatoes on top and cover the entire thing with cheese.
  10. Cook at 350F for 30 minutes or until potatoes look crispy.
  11. Enjoy.

Not bad at all. There was no mention of how much salt to use, though I added some. Not enough, had to add more afterwards. I had no wine, so I added a splash of beer and some beef broth for the liquid, with adequate salt it was quite good.

This dish was fairly easy to make, and had a pleasant enough taste, but I can't say I was overwhelmed. I just didn't find the flavours very prominent. I had to substitute dried thyme (I'd recommend 1-1 1/2 tsp), but otherwise the recipe was left unaltered. I found the recipe itself quite vague, not indicating how the ingredients were to be prepped, etc. The recipe worked out in the end, but some people may find it confusing. I do have to say, however, that my 2 year old daughters quite enjoyed it. They tended to favour the vegetables above the potatoes or steak. I might try this recipe again, but I will probably try someone else's Shepherd's Pie recipe instead.

Really nice, it is a great kids meal to get them to eat their vegies without a fuss, the only thing I changed was that I only had red wine but it was still good, very quick and simple and great for lunches the next day, thanks for posting.
