Skillet Shepherd's Pie Recipe

This is the best shepherd's pie I've ever tasted. It's very quick to make, and I usually have most—if not all—of the ingredients already on hand. —Tirzah Sandt, San Diego, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cups frozen corn, thawed
  • 2 cups frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3-1/2 cups mashed potatoes (prepared with milk and butter)
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the corn, peas, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and garlic. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook for 5 minutes.
  • 2. Combine the cornstarch, bouillon and water until well blended; stir into beef mixture. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in sour cream and heat through (do not boil).
  • 3. Spread mashed potatoes over the top; sprinkle with cheese. Cover and cook until potatoes are heated through and cheese is melted.
    Freeze option: Prepare beef mixture as directed but do not add sour cream. Freeze cooled meat mixture in a freezer container. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a large skillet, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary. Stir in sour cream and proceed as directed. Yield: 6 servings.

Recipe Note

Test Kitchen Tips

  • Ground lamb is another classic choice for shepherd's pie.
  • Tomato paste or jam can be a stellar substitute in recipes that call for a small amount of ketchup. The flavor may be a little more intense, but that can be a good thing.
  • For a colorful and healthy take on this recipe, try using mashed butternut squash or sweet potato in place of regular mashed potatoes.

    "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.[7][8]
    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 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"!!

I decided to give it a try based on the many positive comments and I am glad I did. I followed the recipe pretty closely, but added a bit more seasoning as others suggested and broiled it the last couple minutes. Delicious! I will definitely make this again."

    "I did a few things differently. First, I didn't put all of the veggies in because it looked like way too much. I also didn't put in as much onion and instead added some chopped celery. Because others stated it was a bit lacking in flavor, I added some parsley, basil, and steak rub seasoning. I also used store-bought mashed potatoes.

    At the end I stuck it all in a dish, and put it in the oven at 350deg for about 15 minutes. Next time I will also broil it for a couple minutes too, like others suggested.
    One thing I did notice was a distinct sweetness to it. I think it was a combination of the ketchup and the large amount of corn. Next time I will cut down on the corn and add in a different veggie (maybe broccoli). While the sour cream made the "sauce" taste good, I didn't really get a strong sour cream flavor (info for those who are on the fence about adding in the sour cream).
    Overall, a good dish, and pretty quick when using leftover or store-bough mashed potatoes. We will make this again with a few changes."

    "I'm giving this five stars, tho I did have to make some substitutions based on what I had on hand. I used some leftover beef roast, about 2/3 bag of frozen mixed veg medley, almost a whole jar of turkey gravy with some generous splashes of Worcestershire sauce, some leftover mash, and some crunched up tater tots (to make up for my small amount of mash). I layered on some processed cheese, you know, the kind that comes in a 2# loaf, and just left it to bubble away. My husband declared it "some really good comfort food", which was perfect after the crummy, rainy day we had. So, please forgive me, reviewer purists out there. For everyone else, I'll just say this recipe is very forgiving. It's hard to go too wrong with a combo of beef, veggies and potatoes, especially when you only have to wash one pan. Oh, and I didn't add the sour cream, because I knew, with only the two of us, there would be leftovers and I didn't know how that would hold up."

I always use Yukon Gold potatoes to make mashed potatoes with--it really ratchets up the flavor.

As far as the veggies go I always use whatever I feel like, even Brussels sprouts once.

    "This is a quick and delicious dinner all in one pot! Love that! I made a few changes to the recipe to suit my family's tastes and this was a meal they really raved about!!! I substituted a package of frozen mixed veggies (thawed) for the corn and peas. I saw other reviewers substitute beef broth for the granules and boiling water and I did the same. I also only used 1 1/2 tsp. worchestshire, based on reviews. Lastly, I added 1 can of diced tomatoes (drained) to add a bit more was delicious, kids and hubby all want it again!"

    "I can't quite put my finger on why this wasn't my favorite, but I think I would skip the worcestershire sauce and ketchup and just make a beef broth type gravy to mix in - and also I would probably omit the peas, or put in fewer and add in some carrots. It wasn't bad, but not something I would make again, unless I adjusted it more to my tastes."

    "I've had different kinds of shephards pie this one was so easy to make and was very tasty had great flavor, the only thing I would change is instead of hamburger meat use corn beef and no onions, this was a great recipe though and will keep it on the list to make again!"

    "I liked how the whole dish was cooked on the stovetop rather than a mix of stovetop and oven; it was more convenient. I changed a few things: I used beef broth instead of water and bouillon, and I didn't have Worcestershire sauce so I replaced it with BBQ and hot sauce. Past Shepherd's pie recipes have been extremely bland so I think the BBQ sauce and hot sauce actually made the recipe more enjoyable for us."

    "I love cooking this recipe, and my husband loves eating it! I much prefer this stovetop version to my old standby which called for putting it in the oven. The first time I made it was good, but it was missing a little something. I always added a bit of dried tarragon to my old recipe, and so I did with this one as well. Perfect!"

    "This was such an easy and delicious recipe! I would decrease the amount of Worcestershire sauce. I made the topping with half of the pie with the white potatoes and the other half I used mashed sweet potatoes (just salt, pepper, little butter and milk). The sweet potato side went faster than the traditional potato side. Thank you for this recipe!"
