Shepherd's pie, as many of you well know, is a classic layered British dish, traditionally made with minced lamb and potato. Everyone and their grandmother has their own favourite twist on this recipe, and I'm no different.
This savory, moreish dish is a favourite for my husband and I during depressing Danish winters where it's typically rainy, windy and very dark. When I think about it, pretty much anything with mashed potato is a fan favourite here.
I kept the recipe simple with ground beef, carrot, celery, onion and garlic, with a bit of red wine, beef stock and spices, and then piled the buttery mashed potatoes high on top for a super tasty one-dish meal that took less than an hour to make.
