cottage pie or shepherds pie

im going to make one or other of these two tomorrow...i know one is beef and one is lamb.....and although i can make a fairly good basic one i never seem to be able to get that lovely moist gravy texture...i would be glad of a nice recipe.
im wondering if swede and tatties mashed for the top would be ok ..or is it best just to have plain mash.

Re: cottage pie or shepherds pie

A bit of swede sounds yummy. I always cook onions, mushrooms and the meat and then chuck in a can of tomatoes and some tomato puree. A friend of mine also chucks in a can of baked beans and I sometimes add sweet corn. I think it's a case of bung in what you fancy and then stick the mash on top!

You can use beef or lamb in either, the only diference is there are shepherds in one and cottages in the other, Sweed and tatters are fine for a topping, we put peas and carrots in the Cottage pie, when making the Shepherds pie I always put some mint in with the meat. Come on over Shirl and we will show you how we do it
We used to make a pie called Monday Pie it was made from (guess what? Sunday left overs) we used to put a can of Baked Beans in that, The choice is yours.

Shirley I add some bisto (not sure if you can get it) to the meat and veg before i put it in the dish and then add the potatoes on top. Some cheese added to the potatoes is lovely.

Shirley when i come over i'm going to make you one thats so good you'll eat your fingers of !!! { hubby says that } Very slowly simmer minced steak . weth finely chopped onion .. Skim off the brown scummy stuff . for the gravy add a little beef stock and cornflower .. Then place in the oven with the mash of your choice on top ..When mash starts to turn golden sprinkle with grated cheese , and serve with vegtables of your choice .. meat must be cooked slowly . I'll bring a bit of nice aberdeen angus mince ...Diane

Hey Shirl Diane might come to Datca with Hil and I in April so you had better hop on a bus and get up there. I can pick you up in a car from Marmaris. We'll let her loose in the kitchen!

Re: cottage pie or shepherds pie

We'e at the other end so no worries about hijacking you.

When I make mine I always mix my mash then add grated cheese (very strong cheddar and onions), and then just top it all off score the mash ans add a huge knob of butter. I never use packet mixes when cooking, my Grandma taught me well, she always said the juice from your meat is the best source.
