Not shepherds pie
The animal inside..
I have to admit to it bugging me slightly when they get mixed up..
Cottage pie has to be beef, and to include veggies and herbs found around the cottage.
Shepherds is a more simple yet delicious affair.. Lamb, hogget or mutton. With the simple veggies and herbs found in the fields and hills..
Fair enough I have no real idea as to where the mashed potato bit comes into it..
All of them are best when made from leftovers though.. The roast chopped up or hoiked out of the stewpot
Ok off the soap box..
This is using up the bits of short ribs plus the leftover sauce..
With some extra minced beef fried up ..
Adding the leftover sauce..
A little water and veal jus added..
Into the dish.. (A second one made for a pal..)..
Topped with lovely buttery mash
Into the oven.. Till crispy topped..
And ahh — whaa–Lahhh–
A food hug on a fork..
