Breaking Tradition and It’s All in the Meat…

Cooking purists may object to this recipe, citing any reference to the classic dish known as Irish Shepherd’s Pie. After all, true Shepherd’s Pie uses lamb as the protein. But this recipe for Shepherd’s Pie Stuffed Potatoes (a.k.a. Cottage Pie), as it’s called since we’re using ground beef in it, is already an unconventional dish remade for modern cooks who need to get dinner on the table in little to no time at all!

Though, if you happen to be a cooking purist...

I can respect the traditional inclusion of ground lamb in place of the ground beef used in this recipe. Please, you certainly may substitute it here in this recipe for Shepherd’s Pie Stuffed Potatoes as a measure-for-measure swap of ingredients.

I understand why you might want to go to the extra effort to make classic Irish Shepherd’s Pie made since the 18th century. Cooked with lamb, lots of vegetables, and Guinness used in making the gravy, then baking the comforting dish that is topped and piped with creative peaks of mashed potatoes to a golden brown for a sophisticated look. Believe me when I tell you that I do love the idea.

Time-wise, we’re saving about an hour in prep and cooking time over the traditional method, but again, not that there’s anything wrong with tradition. Oh, and did I mention that our recipe has fewer calories? I’m just saying…

Easy Shepherd's Pie Stuffed Potatoes for Busy Weeknight Dinners

But since we are in a hurry here, and Guinness is a definite no-no for non-gluten eaters, were using ground beef because it’s widely available and relatively inexpensive. We’re also skipping the beer (and the gluten) using beef broth instead, and baking our potatoes in the microwave because who doesn’t like quick and easy, especially on a weeknight?

Ingredients
 
 

Instructions
 

  • Using a fork, poke a few holes in the potatoes — microwave for 6-10 minutes or until fully cooked.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, and ground beef. Cook until the meat is completely browned.
  • Stir in the Shepherd’s Pie Skillet Meal Seasoning, tomato paste, and beef broth. Bring to a simmer and cook until the sauce has thickened, about 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the mixed vegetables, cook until heated.
  • Slice and split the potatoes. Stuff with the Shepherd’s Pie beef and vegetable filling mixture. Top with scallions and .

Recipe Notes

[1] We used fresh cooked carrots that we pre-cooked to fork-tender and frozen corn and peas. For a full recipe (2 cups), use 2/3 cups of each vegetable to equal the full amount. You could also use canned or frozen vegetables.
Easily make this dish in advance by cooking your potatoes ahead of time in the microwave and pre-cooking and combining the meat and vegetable mixture with the gravy. Store the cooked potatoes separate from the meat/vegetable/gravy mixture in the refrigerator until you're ready to assemble and eat.
To make your meal, reheat the potatoes for 1-2 minutes in the microwave, warm the meat, vegetable, and gravy mixture in a small skillet or saucepan on the stove until heated through. Assemble by slicing and splitting the potatoes. Spoon the Shepherd’s Pie beef and vegetable filling mixture on top. Finish with Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese and scallions before serving.
