Don't take shortcuts in making shepherd's pie. This recipe uses fresh ingredients and tastes so much better!
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1/2 large onion, diced
16 oz Bag Frozen Mixed Vegetables
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp tomato paste
1/2 tsp dried thyme
2 cups beef broth
2 tsp salt, or to taste
3 cups mashed potatoes
1/4 cup cheddar cheese, finely grated
couple shakes of Parmesan cheese
In a large skillet, brown the beef until no longer pink. Drain off excess grease. Add onion, garlic, and mixed vegetables and saute for 3-5 minutes.
Add Worcestershire sauce and tomato paste. Season with thyme and cook for about 1 minute. Add broth and simmer until 5-10 minutes or until sauce has thickened. Taste and adjust seasoning.
Transfer beef to a deep dish. You can use an 8×8 square pan, a casserole or you can make individual servings.
Spoon mashed potato on top of beef. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese and cheddar cheese. Place the dish on a cookie sheet in case it bubbles over while baking. Bake in a 375° F oven for 20 minutes or until top is brown and heated through.
