Slow Cooker Shepherds Pie

  • Cooking Time:

    6 hours
  • Servings:



3 -4 c. pota­toes, mashed, left­over
1 1/2–2 lbs. ground beef
2 cloves gar­lic, minced
1 onion, large, chopped fine­ly
1/2 c. cel­ery, chopped
1 — 2 car­rot, shred­ded
1/2 c. corn (fresh, frozen or canned)
1/2 c. sweet peas (fresh, frozen or canned)
6 oz. toma­to paste, canned
1 toma­to, diced
6 oz. water
1 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. black pep­per
1/4 tsp. papri­ka (sprin­kle on top of mashed pota­toes for gar­nish)
Gar­nish with chopped fresh pars­ley
non­stick cook­ing spray

Shepherd’s Pie is a tra­di­tion­al Irish dish that I love to make any­time I have left­over mashed pota­toes.  (I pret­ty much make this after any hol­i­day!)

  1. Brown the ground beef with the onion, gar­lic, cel­ery and car­rots until meat is no longer pink; drain any fat.
  2. Mix corn, sweet peas, salt, black pep­per, toma­to paste, diced toma­toes and water into the ground beef mix­ture; stir well.
  3. Spray the inside of the slow cook­er with non-stick cook­ing spray, or use the slow cook­er lin­er; pour meat mix­ture into the bot­tom of slow cook­er; press into the bot­tom of the crock so it is dense and even.
  4. Spread left­over mashed pota­toes (even­ly) over the meat mix­ture.
  5. Sprin­kle the mashed pota­toes with papri­ka (option­al, for gar­nish).
  6. Cov­er. Cook on Low 6 hours or on High 3 hours; then, remove the lid for 30 min­utes to allow the pota­toes to brown.
  7. Sprin­kle pie with fresh, chopped pars­ley (option­al, for gar­nish).

Although this recipe is won­der­ful, it is cot­tage pie. Shepherd’s Pie is made with lamb.

I made this tonight & it was real­ly nice even though it was made with beef mince not lamb.
