Cookbook 3 is coming this Spring!! I can’t even wait! There are so many amazing recipes ready for this one, including this Shepherd’s Pie. This is what I call a good, stick to your ribs kind of meal. We love Shepherd’s Pie in our home and I’m willing to bet if you don’t already, you soon will. Give this macro friendly Shepherd’s Pie recipe a try and let me know what you think!
I used a mashed potato packet for this recipe to save some time and it’s still so good! Costco near me sells a really good brand we like, Honest Earth. I also included the real potatoes amount if you want to boil your own.

2 pounds lean ground beef (93/7)
1/2 cup diced onion (60g)
1 cup diced carrots (150g)
1 cup diced celery (126g)
1/2 cup frozen corn (68g)
1/2 cup frozen peas (68g)
4 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
4 tablespoons flour
1/2 tablespoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon rosemary
1/4 teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper
2 cups beef broth
6.4oz creamy mashed potato packet (I used Honest Earth from Costco)
1 cup 2% milk (for mashed potatoes)
* sub in 5 & 1/3 cups of any instant mashed potatoes or real potatoes mashed without the butter and 2% milk)
Over medium high heat, brown your meat with a bit of salt. Drain the fat once cooked through.
Add your onions, carrots, celery and all seasonings (plus salt and pepper to taste) and cook until the veggies are soft.
While the veggies cook make your potatoes. I didn't add any butter to my instant potatoes and mixed in 1 cup of 2% milk with mine. You'll need 5 & 1/3 cups total of mashed potatoes.
Once veggies are soft, add in frozen peas, corn, broth, Worcestershire sauce, flour, and tomato paste. Stir well.
If using an oven safe dish (I used my dutch oven pan), top with your masted potatoes and bake in the oven at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes or until bubbly and the potatoes are turning golden brown on top. If using a casserole dish, transfer meat and veggies to your greased casserole dish and top with the potatoes.
