Shepherd's pie

Some recipes have been with me for years and I keep making them time and time again, and this recipe for Shepherd’s Pie is one of my all-time favorites.
It makes a great family meal since it’s easy to prepare and tastes amazing. It also looks quite impressive and so don’t be afraid to serve it for more festive meals or if you’re entertaining.
There’s a layer of seasoned ground beef topped with a layer of creamy mashed potatoes. Bake them together and the magic happens! The juices from the meat get soaked up a bit by the mashed potatoes and the overall flavor is amazing. This is a bit of a messy dish, though, but that’s one of the best parts about it, that everything gets mixed together on the plate!
Meat and potatoes baked in a casserole pan makes such a great combo.
A great dish to make that’ll definitely be a crowd-pleaser!
You should watch the video before getting started.

20 x 30 baking dish


500 grams ground beef
1 medium onion

1 tsp Moroccan paprika
1/2 Tbsp rotisserie chicken spice
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp chicken bouillon
1/3 tsp ground black pepper
Salt (if needed, to taste)

4 potatoes
3 Tbsp oil
1/3 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp salt


1. Peel the potatoes and cook them until they’re soft.

2. Chop the onion, heat 2 Tbsp of oil and sauté the onion until slightly golden. Add the ground beef and break it up as you sauté it. Cook for around 10 minutes until the beef is cooked through and changes its color. Add the spices, mix, cook for two more minutes and remove from the heat.

3. Preheat an oven to 180°C.

4. Evenly spread the beef in the baking dish. Mash the potatoes with the oil and seasoning. Evenly spread the mashed potatoes over the meat and score the surface with a fork, and brush with oil.

5. Bake uncovered for around 45 minutes.

Good to know…
You can make the meat mixture the day before, and then add the mashed potatoes before baking. If you like sweet potatoes, you can mix the two or substitute completely. I don’t recommend using ground chicken. Beef or lamb work best here.
