"Found on a Disney site. I modified it a bit. Chose to use boxed butter and herb mashed potatoes because its quicker (could use homemade but be sure to also add milk) This is the best one ive tried yet. Tons of flavour!!"
Serving Size: 1 (317 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 5
"I loved this! It was so good...and the next day leftovers I thought were even better. I made this exactly as written,except I didn't use instant potatoes. I must not have waited long enough before serving, although it was like 30 minutes because it was still too thin. The next day though it had thickened up alot and was yummy! I also make this with chicken and chicken broth and it is equally as good. I will be making this again and again. Thank you for posting this!"
"This was so warming after another drizzly, foggy Alaskan day! You saved me from having to make my husband his favorite hamburger gravy. He is now trying to figure out how to take this to hunting camp. I had to make some tweaks, I didn't have beef broth so I used brown gravy and left out the flour. I drained the tomatos like someone else suggested and had to use frozen chopped onions, cause it's what I had, I threw them in after I browned the beef and drained it, along with the frozen corn. But it still turned out wonderful. Next time I think I will thicken it a hair more but it was so tasty and warm! Thanks for a keeper!"
"This was an excellent recipe...I doubled it and sent one home for a girlfriend who has had some surgery...easy and yummy."
"It was very good. I didn't have sour cream, but it was still good. Next time, I will do exactly what it says in the recipe. Everyone in my family liked it. Thanks for posting!"
"This is my family's favorite dinner. I have changed it a bit. I use a bag of veg. a jar of gravy instead of broth and never instant potatoes, I use a 5lb bag of red potatoes. Delicious!"
"This is a very versatile recipe; it doesn't indicate how much mashed potato is needed though. I think around 4 cups would be enough so you get the nice ratio between potato and filling."
"We all loved this! I did put less stock in there and that worked out perfect. I also just used a mix of veggies and my husband loved it so much, he had THREE services and took some leftovers to work today!"
"Very tasty recipe but mine came out a little soupy, not sure if I didn't use enough mashed potato's or what, I used 6 cups and would use more next time and also make sure you drain the diced tomato's well. I might even cut down on the beef broth to 3/4 cup but overall loved it :)"
"This was quite good, I used two lbs of beef and adjusted some of the ingredients to suit. I added a bit too much broth and it was a little soupy! I added twice the garlic and a wee bit of steak spice. I would decrease the thyme (I associate it with chicken!) Used some leftover mashed potaotes (okay I had a ton!) My DH doesn't care for Shepherds pie and he enjoyed this. Easy to throw together. Thanks!!"
"I can't say if this is the best, but it's darn good.... and easy! I used leftover homemade mashed potatoes (made w/ sour cream) but otherwise stuck to the recipe. It was very tasty. I made Recipe #243503 as a side dish for this and it was a wonderful meal. Thanx for sharing!"
"Great recipe! The whole family loved it, this is the 2nd time I made it and there is never any left over. My husband always tries to put a little away for lunch the next day but one of the kids always finds it. Thanks for a winner recipe."
"This recipe is awesome! Everyone's favorite in my house. As another reviewer mentioned, adding the shredded cheddar cheese on top is a must. I double the garlic and I use frozen mixed veggies peas/carrots/corn/green beans) instead of just corn. Also reheats well for leftovers (if there are any!)."
"Tried this as written--WOW!! Really was authentic, however, I am going to try using Guiness beer in place of the beef broth next time. We had this several times while in Ireland and it was always made with Guiness. Thanks for posting."
"This was excellent. One thing I added was shredded sharp cheddar cheese on top. It added a nice touch. Thanks for the recipe."
"My husband said "I hate Shepherd's Pie...but this is AWESOME!" I loved it, and so did all six of my kids...including two picky eaters. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!"
