Reviews for Skillet Shepherd's Pie
"I've been making this since high school in the 1960's and always used hamburger meat. So the ingredient to use typically depends on which contry your from. In the US is typically beef.See from Wikipedia: In early cookery books, the dish was a means of using leftover roasted meat of any kind, and the pie dish was lined with mashed potato as well as having a mashed potato crust on top.The term "shepherd's pie" did not appear until 1854, and since then it is sometimes used synonymously with "cottage pie", regardless of whether the principal ingredient is beef or mutton. In the United Kingdom, the term "shepherd's pie" is typically used when the meat is lamb. ]"
"I don't care what it's called, we call it darned good!! Very comforting dinner and easy to prepare!"
"If I want comfort food and I want dinner - THIS is the perfect recipe! Very easy to make - all though, I'll admit, I left out the Worcestershire sauce and added in a few other spices instead. Butt hat's just personal preference."
"This is easy to make and has good flavor. I added 1/2 tsp. of salt, and 1/4 tsp. of black pepper to the meat and onion mixture based on what others had said. I didn't have any sour cream, and I used canned corn instead of frozen, and topped the potatoes with white cheddar. My husband gave it a thumbs up!"
"This Shepherd's pie has a wonderful taste to it. It comes together quickly. I substituted canned green beans & corn for the frozen because that is what I had on hand. Will definitely be making this again!"
"I lived in Ireland for over 20 years & owned a restaurant/pub there. A SHEPARDS pie is made with minced (ground) LAMB. When this dish is made with minced ( ground) BEEF the dish is called COTTAGE pie. "Minced" is the Irish terminology for "Ground"!! The seasonings for "Shepards" pie are slightly different, but quite obvious, than the seasonings for "Cottage" pie!NOTE: THERE IS NO CORN, EVER, IN EITHER ONE !!!"
"After 3 helpings of this dish, my husband said I could add this dish to our weekly dinner rotation. I added chopped carrots instead of the corn along with a teaspoon as thyme and it was delicious. Definitely a keeper!"
"Why do people get so "hung up" on recipe titles? Ridiculous!"
"Was a real hit with my family. I used carrots and beans from our garden in place of corn & peas and baked in the oven because my skillet wasn't big enough. I'm a volunteer Field Editor and enjoy testing out recipes. We loved the flavours in this dish!"
