Savory Shepherd’s Pie

In yesterday’s mashed potatoes post, I mentioned the shepherd’s pie that I prepared for the British-themed potluck party.   Today, I’m sharing the actual recipe.  I have dubbed it “Savory Shepherd’s Pie” because of a conversation at the party.  One of my friends said, “Oh, I like this shepherd’s pie.  It’s very savory.” I’ll take it!

Anyway, when I had decided to make a shepherd’s pie, I went to the online home of one of my favorite British-themed places in New York City, Tea & Sympathy.  I love afternoon tea and they have one of the best services in the city along with other main dishes.  I looked on their catering menu to see what they included in their Shepherd’s Pie.  Their beef shepherd’s pie is served with  peas and carrots with mashed potatoes as the pie crust, so that is how I made mine.  I looked at a *few recipes for shepherd’s pie to see what was consistent across the board (Worcestershire sauce and beef broth or stock) and then just went to work.  Here’s what I came up with…
