After 2 days of rain I am welcoming the spurts of sunshine and warmer temps despite the winds! So as I posted on Instagram I had never eaten or made Shepherds Pie but it was something I was interested in trying. Something new for us to try - which I am making it one of my resolutions to make more of a variety of home cooked meals. I wasn't sure how it would turn out but I figured it was worth a shot - I loved it to say the least (and it even tasted good as leftovers)! I am a crock pot junkie (I have 3 of them LOL) and find that many times it is so much easier to use my crocks to make meals because I am able to basically put the ingredients in and not have to stand over the stove or oven (and they are a savior in the summer time)! Now, I knew it required meat, veggies and mashed potatoes. That was about the extent of what I knew about Shepherds Pie. So I pulled out one of my trusty crocks and put about 2 pounds of grass fed beef in, some dried minced onions, turmeric and ginger powder (I add these 2 spices to just about everything I cook), about 1 cup of water, and a about 8 splashes of Worcestershire sauce (you can buy what I use here - affiliate link), and some Himalayan salt (You can buy the kind I use here - affiliate link). I let the meat cook throughly and once the meat was cooked I added a 16oz. bag of organic mixed vegetables to the meat. Then I cut and cooked about 7 organic potatoes and when they were done I mashed them, added some grass fed butter, milk, some Himalayan salt, cheese, and parsley. Once the mashed potatoes were finished I scooped by spoonfuls on top of the meat and vegetable mixture and allowed it to cook on low. Whether it would be considered Shepherds Pie, I don't know but for not having knowledge on how to make it and never eating it - this was yummy! Something I will definitely make again! If you decide to give it a try, drop me a line or comment on how it was! I would love to hear about it! Coach Michele
