Single Serving Shepherds Pie

  • 3 pounds lean ground lamb, or beef
  • Dubliner Mashed Potatoes, recipe below
  • Three carrots, sliced
  • One onion, diced
  • 1 cups green peas
  • 1 cup Dubliner Cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup beef stock

Directions

1st step
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2nd step
Add butter and olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat, let the olive oil heat up before adding vegetables. Saute onions, carrots, and garlic until tender for about 7 minutes. Season with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to your taste. Once the vegetables have softened and started to brown a little, add the tomato paste and mix evenly.

Cook and simmer vegetables and ground meat for another 10 minutes, mix in peas at this time. Transfer mixture to an oven-proof baking single-serve Pyrex dish and spread evenly.
