"Very good. I liked the steak instead of the traditional ground beef you would find in a shepard's pie."

"Meat mixture was a little runny but I sprinkled flour on and mixed it in before I put the potatoes on top. Turned out great!"

"This needed salt and the bottom meat portion ended up a little runny. Love the mushroom and pea combination."
