Traditional Shepherd's Pie

Shepherd's Pie is an annual feature on our Pesach menu.  It calls for very few ingredients and is quite filling.  This is a family favorite.


3 tablespoons oil

3 pounds ground beef

2 medium onions, chopped

4 tablespoons parsley, chopped

1/2 cup bell pepper (any color diced)

1 can tomato paste (I had some sauce from stuffed cabbage which I used in place of tomato paste)

6 potatoes, cooked and mashed

1/4 - 1/2 cup vegetable broth


Heat oil in a large skillet. 

Add ground meat, onion, tomato paste, parsley, and a dash of salt and pepper in a pot. 

Cook until meat has browned. Stir and break up meat so that the pieces are small.

While these are cooking, boil whole potatoes in water until soft. Then peel and mash.

Add bell pepper and broth to potatoes.  (You can add shredded carrots or shredded zucchini as well)

In  2 - 3 quart casserole, layer ground meat and potatoes.  

Sprinkle with paprika and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. 

Eat and enjoy.

  1. Isn't is amazing how many normal recipes lend themselves to Pesach! No need to be making everything with matzoh products. Of course being gluten free these kind of recipes work best for me.
