How to make Shepherd’s Pie
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees. Using nonstick cooking spray, grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish and set aside.
Step 2: Add the diced potatoes to a large pot with boiling water and cook until tender. Drain when done and set the potatoes aside.
Step 3: In a large skillet, cook the ground beef, onion, and garlic until the meat is no longer pink. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, parsley, thyme, and rosemary. Then, stir in the frozen corn, peas, and carrots.
Step 4: Whisk the beef broth and cornstarch in a small bowl or measuring cup until well blended. Pour this on the beef mixture and let everything simmer on medium-low heat until the mixture has thickened.
Step 5: Into the prepared baking dish, transfer the meat mixture, and set aside.
Step 6: Season the cooked potatoes with salt, pepper, and garlic. Whisk in the butter, milk, and Parmesan cheese. Mash the potatoes using a potato masher until smooth. Then, spread this over the meat mixture.
Step 7: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 45 to 50 minutes or until the potatoes start to brown and the sauce is bubbling. Take the pie out of the oven when done and let it rest for about 5 to 10 minutes.
Step 8: Slice and serve. Enjoy!
