  • 3 tbsp - flour
  • 1/2 kg - ground Beef
  • 1 cup - Beef stock
  • 3 tbsp - Tomato paste
  • 1.5 tsp - dried Thyme
  • 1 tsp - red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup - (plus a bit for garnish) roughly chopped flat-leaf Parsley

  • How to Make Shepherd's Pie:

    1. Preheat the oven to 220 degree Celsius. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat.
    2. Add pearl onions, toss, cover, and steam until they begin to soften for 5 to 7 mins.
    3. Add the garlic and celery and stir. Add mushrooms and cook until they give off liquid and start to brown, approx. for 5 mins.
    4. Add 1 tbsp. of flour, stir, and cook for one to two mins.
    5. Add meat, break it up, season with salt and pepper, and cook until they are brown.
    6. Add stock, tomato paste, thyme and pepper flakes and bring to a boil.
    7. Lower the heat and allow it to simmer until gravy thickens and is absorbed by meat.
    8. Allow all the liquid to be absorbed by the meat and vegetables so it doesn't spill out later.
    9. Stir in 1/2 cup parsley and remaining flour. Pour filling in a deep pie dish and let it cool.
    10. Spread the mashed potatoes on top of the meat. Sprinkle potatoes with parmesan and cheddar cheeses.
    11. Bake pie for about 15 to 20 mins.
    12. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining chopped parsley. Let it stand for 5 mins. before serving.
