Shepherd’s pie is a traditional Irish dish with minced meat, vegetables, and mashed potatoes. Throughout history, it has become one of the most famous savory pies in the world.

Let’s make it together. 😊

Put unpeeled potatoes to cook. During this time, prepare the meat. Fry the onion first, then add the minced meat and spices. After 15 minutes, add half a beef soup cube melted in boiling water and pureed tomatoes. Add the frozen vegetables and cook for another 15 minutes. At the very end, add a little cooking cream to make the sauce creamier. After the potatoes are cooked, peel and mash them, then add milk, melted butter, and a spoonful of sour cream – to make mashed potatoes. Coat the bottom of the oven dish with butter. Put the sauce in a bowl, and spread the mashed potatoes on top of the sauce. Sprinkle with sweet ground paprika and bake for 45 minutes at 200°C.
