How to Make GUINNESS SHEPHERD'S PIE (BONNIE'S)
- Cook's note: You can make the roast beef and the mashed potatoes ahead and refrigerate. Be sure to warm up the meat and potatoes before making the recipe as it will affect the cooking time.
- MAKE AHEAD:
Use this recipe for roast beef. (It is my posted recipe for French Dip Sandwiches, and it is perfectly seasoned for this recipe) Place in a crockpot the following 4 ingredients. One 2.5 pound chuck roast, fat trimmed. One can Campbell's French Onion Soup. One can of beef broth, and one bottle of Guinness beer. Cook in slow cooker until tender but not falling apart. Let it cool, then cut meat into a 1/2 inch dice.
- BOIL POTATOES:
Make mashed potatoes, season with 1/2 cup sliced green onions, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, 1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup sour cream and season with salt and pepper. Add a splash of milk if it needs more liquid when you are mashing them. I use an electric mixer to mash the potatoes.
- PRECOOK VEGETABLES:
Precook the frozen carrots, corn and onions until partially done and drain well. In a large mixing bowl, add the diced meat, all the vegetables, one cup of gravy and mix gently. Pour meat mixture into a 9X13 dish, or if you are making a smaller amount use a 10 inch pie plate. Top with the seasoned mashed potatoes. Using the tines of a large fork, make the design on top like my photo. Place the baking dish on a cookie sheet with a lip, and bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from oven and let set at least 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
