It has been quite cold the past week. The cold and rainy weather is making me crave all things comfort food and the other night the comfort dish I was craving was Shepherd’s Pie. But I really wasn’t wanting Shepherd’s Pie with ground beef so I decided to give it a go with chuck steak instead. It took a bit longer than if I had used ground beef but the result was so worth it and the hands on time was minimal. Alternatively this is a great way to use up leftover pot roast.
This is a really savory rich dish and is great leftover for lunch the next day. You all know how it goes….. Rich beef in gravy layered on the bottom with a middle layer of sweet baby peas and topped off with buttery delicious mashed potatoes with little crispy bits on the top. If you find you have quite a bit leftover, chill in the fridge overnight. The next day slice into portions, wrap each portion into cling wrap and freeze the wrapped portions in a freezer bag.
I hope you give this a try and be sure to let me know how you like it!
