Shepard's Pie Recipe

Shepard's Pie Recipe
I just want to take this time out and say this is NOT my recipe. I do from time to time frequent others for inspiration. But I ventured out of my comfort zone and made this dish. 
You WILL not be disappointed, if you also make this!!
 What you will need:
4-6 Potatoes
 1 stick of Butter
1 table spoon olive oil
1 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
1 package of hamburger (turkey or lamb)
Small glass red wine
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 packet of gravy powder
1 sprig rosemary 
 half a bag of frozen peas (we used fresh snap peas from our garden)
 Grated cheddar cheese to taste.
1. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes until softened. Add the mince and cook, stirring, for 10 minutes until browned. Add the red wine, the chopped tomatoes, gravy and rosemary. Season with salt and pepper and simmer. Finally add the peas.
2. Put the potatoes in a large pan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil. Cook for 10 minutes until tender. Drain and mash with the butter. Season with freshly ground black pepper and set aside.
3. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Spoon the beef mixture into a large oven proof dish. Top with the mashed potato, cheddar cheese and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden and bubbling.
It will just down right smell & taste lovely!
Serve & Enjoy!

  2. I do really like shepherds pie. I had not had it in a while but this is a good dinner for me over the weekend. I think I will try it. Can I just drink the red wine instead of putting it in the pie?
