Shepard's Pie Recipe-A Recipe for Ground Beef

Updated on December 13, 2010

Shepard's Pie Recipe


I had never tried Shepard’s Pie until a friend of mine kept raving about it. So, I looked up Shepard’s Pie Recipes online and found one I thought I’d try. I changed it up a little bit to match my vegetable preferences and tried it. Now it is one of my favorite dishes. It seems like it’s a very good meal during cold weather. So, I thought I would share my Shepard’s Pie Recipe with all of you so that you can enjoy this filling meal as well. I will warn you, this is a very meat and potato type dish.



1 to 1 ½ lbs of ground beef

1 yellow onion

1 clove of minced garlic

1 can of corn

1 can of sweet peas

4 to 5 med or large potatoes

2 tablespoons of butter





Worcestershire Sauce

1 cup of beef broth

Preparation: Mashed Potatoes


  1. Peel and dice potatoes then boil.
  2. When potatoes are soft, drain water and place in mixing bowl.
  3. Add butter to potatoes and mix.
  4. Once potatoes start to become mashed, slowly add milk until you have a smooth consistency.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Preparation: Meat and Veggies (While potatoes are cooking.)


  1. Add 3 tablespoons of oil to a hot skillet.
  2. Place diced onion and garlic into skillet and cook until tender.
  3. Once your onions start to caramelize, add beef.
  4. Cook beef until browned.
  5. Once beef is brown, add peas, corn, beef broth, and a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce.
  6. Simmer uncovered on med/high for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Heat over to 375 degrees.

Preparation of Shepard’s Pie


  1. Place meat and veggies into a 9 x 13 dish and smooth evenly.
  2. Pour mashed over meat and veggies.
  3. Smooth potatoes evenly on top.
  4. Place in oven uncovered for 20 minutes.
  5. Remove and serve.



You can substitute vegetables to whatever you like. I just prefer using my two favorites.


I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do! It’s a nice heavy meal to serve on those really cold days. Of course, the use of the oven and stove help make the house a little warmer as well.
