This is the French Canadian version of Sheperd's pie. Quebecois opinions vary on the way their Sheperd's pie should be prepared, some prefer it prepared with "old" while others prefer it with "new". "Old" means it's prepared with leftover cooked beef and "new" means it's prepared with fresh ground beef.
