Shepherd Pie

Assalamu alaykum.

Never occurred to me that I will be baking sherperd pie even though I had looked through the recipes several times. It seems so difficult at first. However, my loving friends made it sound so simple that encouraged me to try baking this. And I made this for visitors who came for the last Eidul fitri.



Ingredients

Top
3 large rousette potato - peeled, diced, boiled till tender
2 table spoon butter
2-3 table spoon milk
salt to taste

Base
About 1/4 kg ground beef
2 tomatos - diced small
1 carrot - diced small
1 large onion - diced
2 table spoon tomato sauce
salt and pepper to taste

Making it:

Prepare the base

  1. Saute the onion till brown.
  2. Add tomato, ground beef till cooked.
  3. Add carrot, and all the seasonings.
  4. Cooked well.
  5. Place in a caserole.
Preparing the top
  1. Mash the potato (best done while hot)
  2. Add butter, milk and seasoning.
  3. Spread the potato on top of the ground beef base. Use a fork to make a pattern for a more appealing outcome. You may also pipe the mashed potato using the icing nozzle.
  4. Baked in oven for about 2o minutes till slight brown.
It's ready to be served. Alhamdulillah another recipe tried and succeeded.
Happy to share it with others.

Wassalam.
