How to Make Shepherd's Pie

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