Our Favorite Way To Serve It Up

Traditionally, Shepherd’s Pie made with ground beef is called “Cottage Pie.” Our favorite version of this classic recipe uses extra lean ground sirloin and The Fresh Market Beef Stock for deep, rich flavor. Once the dish is fully cooked and slightly cooled, add a sprinkling of fresh diced chives for a touch of brightness. Scroll down for the full recipe.

  • 1 Shepherd’s Pie Vegetable Kit
  • 2 c. The Fresh Market Beef Stock

1Sauté veggies

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Heat 2 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil in a large 12 inch cast-iron or oven safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add the celery, carrots, onions and garlic from the vegetable kit, reserving the peas and chives. Sauté the vegetables for 3-5 minutes to soften.

2Warm stock

While veggies sauté, warm stock in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add 2 tbsp. of broth to the veggies to deglaze. Transfer vegetable mixture to a bowl and set aside. Wipe out skillet with paper towel.

3Brown ground beef

Heat the remaining 2 tbsp. of oil in the same skillet over medium high heat. Distribute the ground beef evenly over the pan for better browning. Break into small pieces as it cooks and browns, about 5 minutes. Turn down the heat to medium-low and sprinkle flour over the cooked ground beef. Stir the meat and flour together and cook for 1-2 minutes.

4Add reserved veggies

Add 1 ½ cups hot stock to the floured ground beef, stirring quickly to prevent lumps as the sauce will thicken very fast. Cook another 1-2 minutes and remove from heat. Add the reserved vegetables and peas to the beef mixture and stir to combine.

5Spread potatoes

Stir together the remaining stock and mashed potatoes in a medium bowl. Spoon potatoes over the beef and veggie mixture. Gently spread the potatoes over the surface as evenly as possible. Note – If not using an oven safe skillet, pour mixture into 9”x9” baking dish before topping with mashed potatoes.
