Moe and I are partial to what I call “diner food”. Another name for comfort food. I get a craving occasionally for Hot Turkey/chicken sandwiches with homemade fries, meatloaf, salisbury steak, chicken stew and dumplings, etc…..
Shepherds Pie also falls into the category of Diner Food.
And that is what we had for dinner on Monday night.
Rather than make a large Shepherds Pie I made two individual servings.
My shepherds Pie is rather simple, seasoned with onions, celery, garlic and fresh thyme.
Any other vegetables are served on the side not in the pie.
This is how I make Shepherds Pie. Just a basic outline. It is all done to taste.
Lean ground beef
Worcestershire sauce (optional)
Saute meat until browned. Add the chopped onion, garlic and celery. Saute until vegetables are tender. Season with salt pepper, thyme. Sprinkle with flour. Cook for a minute or two and add beef broth and Worcestershire sauce. Simmer for 30 minutes or so. Pour into shallow casserole and top with mashed potatoes. Dot with butter and bake until golden.
