Shepherd's pie (or 'cottage pie' it should more properly be called - real 'shepherds pie' is made with lamb!) is one ofrepparttar all-time favorite 'comfort' foods. On a cold winter's night, nothing is as welcome as a big plate of well made shepherd's pie, with some crusty bread - or at least that's what we believe here at www.helensrecipes.com !. And making it is nowhere near as difficult as you might imagine - in fact, I actually know MEN who can make a passable shepherd's pie! :-). Let's begin withrepparttar 113093 ingredients.

500g Leaned Beef Mince 1 white and 1 red Onion - diced Carrot, washed and diced Portobello Mushroom, 1/2 large diced Worcester Sauce - few dashes are needed Ketchup or tomato puree - 1 table spoon Tabasco sauce - few drops Stock Cube x 2 Beef in 1pint hot water Salt & Pepper Mash Potato for topping - Check out our rustic mash potato recipe!
