Upside Down Shepherd's Pie

Susan Baker


This comforting casserole is made even easier by placing potato slices on the bottom. This is a very forgiving recipe, so feel free to adjust the veggies, soup mix, cheese and steak sauce to suit your family's preferences.

How to Make Upside Down Shepherd's Pie


  1. Wash and sice potatoes medium thick. No need to peel them. Place in bottom of a 2 quart casserole.
  2. Brown the ground beef in frying pan. Add in the onions and stir fry until soft. Sprinkle with flour and dry soup mix and stir fry 2 minutes over medium heat. Add steak sauce and water and stir until bubbly.
  3. Add the veggies and mix into the beef mixture.
  4. Pour meat mixture over the potatoes (salt & pepper the potatoes before this step). Top with grated cheese of your choice. I use Cheddar.
  5. Bake covered at 350 for about an hour, or until potatoes are tender when stuck with the tip of a knife.
