30 Minute Shepherd’s Pie
Recipe courtesy of Rachael Ray
Total: 40 min
Prep: 15 min
Cook: 25 min
Yield: 4 servings
Level: Easy


2 pounds potatoes, such as russet, peeled and cubed
2 tablespoons sour cream or softened cream cheese
1 large egg yolk
1/2 cup cream, for a lighter version substitute vegetable or chicken broth
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, 1 turn of the pan
1 3/4 pounds ground beef or ground lamb
1 carrot, peeled and chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup beef stock or broth
2 teaspoons Worcestershire, eyeball it
1/2 cup frozen peas, a couple of handfuls
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves


Boil potatoes in salted water until tender, about 12 minutes. Drain potatoes and pour them into a bowl. Combine sour cream, egg yolk and cream. Add the cream mixture into potatoes and mash until potatoes are almost smooth.

While potatoes boil, preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil to hot pan with beef or lamb. Season meat with salt and pepper. Brown and crumble meat for 3 or 4 minutes. If you are using lamb and the pan is fatty, spoon away some of the drippings. Add chopped carrot and onion to the meat. Cook veggies with meat 5 minutes, stirring frequently. In a second small skillet over medium heat cook butter and flour together 2 minutes. Whisk in broth and Worcestershire sauce. Thicken gravy 1 minute. Add gravy to meat and vegetables. Stir in peas.

Preheat broiler to high. Fill a small rectangular casserole with meat and vegetable mixture. Spoon potatoes over meat evenly. Top potatoes with paprika and broil 6 to 8 inches from the heat until potatoes are evenly browned. Top casserole dish with chopped parsley and serve.

I miss the good ol days of Food Network. I stopped watching after it just became a game show channel. I miss Paula Deen the most. OH welllllllllllllllll. I don't watch that channel anymore and that's saying a lot considering at one time, it was the ONLY channel I watched.

Russ Gibbs says:

Facial? COOL.

Judy Ann says:

I make this it is so yummy good.📼❤👍

Nigel Johnson says:

Its cottage pie, not authentic at all. Why not try kangaroo?

Andrew Heale says:

Does anyone else use corn instead of peas or is it just Me?

Patrica Dyson says:

My mom used to make Kidney stew in the winter it was great…..

Carole Hunt says:

If you are using beef it's not a shepherds pie – it's a cottage pie. That's so!!

Virginia L Pinon says:

to all the negative. no it all comments…….I am poor. been poor most my life…so r most my friends….the average US housewife. uses. grnd beef for this dish….we don't no anything bout all those other ways…..we live it. and Rachael does it good. sometimes I make layers and lits different cheeses

Rola Haddad says:

Shepherds pie meant that the pie was filled with lamb mince and cottage pie was filled with beef mince – mince meat was cheap and could be able to feed a large family

Jessica Singh says:

Suppose to use lamb

Selendria Muganogo says:

She is in my top 5 favorite chefs…

MyZenBasket says:

Shepherd's Pie, simply done!

Ginger Doucet says:

For goodness sakes people.. it’s her recipe version.. like it or not… where is your cooking show? .. btw, and it’s delicious… I make mine the same way

gina says:

I'm watching this the day after St. Ptrick's Day 2018. I love this meal. Rachael looks so young, what about the salt over the shoulder for good luck? I thought she'd always did this.

Albert Langer says:

Recipe nearly same as mine. For the potato topping I just use mashed potatos. But hey, this is a pie that can be plated with. My next Shepherds Pie will be to your way. Already know I will love it. ##$$##%% What is that stove/oven you have? Make/model if a company is making them now. If it is an old one I'd stil love to have make/model. Am changing my kitchen and would love to have it all designed around your oven.

dynodon427 says:

That's not Shepherds pie, it's cottage pie

Victoria Welch says:

She looks like she'd be a character from "Friends".

Beverley Sheridan says:

Kidney. Still popular in the UK but with steak. Also Shepherds pie is lamb. Shepherds look after sheep! Minced beef is Cottage pie….

4Christvoice says:

You're telling me that this one dish, has red meat, oil, butter, cream, flour, potatoes, 'canned beef-gravy',egg-yolk, sour-cream or cream-cheese, salt, flour, and this is being promoted for human consumption?. Jeeessssh!!!
