Shepherd's Pie Tips

I'm going to make Shepherd's Pie for the first time. What is the secret to tasty shepherd's pie; any tips? Should I use minced lamb? Also, I don't want to use gravy in a packet, but gravy is important in this dish, right?

Thanks in advance

Re: Shepherd's Pie Tips

Traditionally Shephards is lamb, cottage is beef, its a leftover dish so just make your mince and gravy up a little thicker than normal.
The mash is better for titivating, a few finley chopped spring onions lightly braised in a little milk, butter and seasoning help a lot.
Run a fork across the top to rough it and grill to brown for the look.

I love vegetarian shepherds pie ... soya mince with lots of flavourings .
or just veggies
Guess you can do a great one with all types of meat /non meat

I don't like any packet gravy ... maybe at most a veggie stock cube

Re: Shepherd's Pie Tips

When I make mine I put the mince beef in saucepan with nothing and sweat and brown it off, I reckon mine is Cottage as we never use the minced lamb much here, to the mince I add a good size finely chopped onion, plenty of carrots chopped up pretty fine, add water and cook until carrot and onion are tender and before I start to cook I add a chicken stock cube, I find chicken stock cubes are a nicer flavour. When all is cooked I drain a tin of sweetcorn and add to the pot and to that I add gravy granules to thicken. Transfer to the oven dish and add creamy buttery mash or like Mollag, Champ with plenty of spring onions, score with a fork and put in the oven until golden brown. I like a good serving of turnip which had sugar added when cooking, drained and tossed in the pan with butter and a nice serving of buttered brocolli. Thats how I do mine.
