"Yes, shepherd's pie is predominantly thought of as Irish or British. But since I'm Scottish, I thought I'd give it a unique twist to suit my ancestral tastes. The use of lamb, the smoky, heather taste of Guinness® Draught (Irish, I admit), and the topping of sharp Cheddar and smoked paprika give this version its unique, smoky-sweet flavor."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This recipe is to die for! It is so good that my husband and I thought it was quite possibly one of the best things we have ever tasted, and I have a very wide culinary repertoire having lived in three different countries, and I LOVE to cook! I have been making shepherds pie for 20 years but this will be the only shepherds pie recipe I ever use from now on! The only thing I changed was that I added more carrots and peas - I probably doubled them at least. It was wonderful and we couldn't stop eating it and my husband keeps asking me when I will be making it again (even though it is now 112 degrees outside, lol) Comfort food at it's BEST!
This was a little more advanced than my cooking skill. I tried it and it was so good! The steps ended up being easier than anticipated. Tasted like I was eating a meal at a restaurant. I will cook it again.
Love this recipe. Something out of the ordinary and easy to make. I also enjoyed the left over beer.
I liked that this recipe uses all real ingredients (no canned soup, for example), and it's easy to make simple substitutes with what is on-hand. I subbed in greek yogurt for the sour cream, corn for the peas, and beef for the lamb. Super simple to make and yields an excellent result. This is one for the recipe box!
This was delicious! We loved it!
Fantastic! I considered using ground beef since it's a bit easier to find, but that would have been a big mistake. This recipe is absolutely perfect and the directions were very easy to follow.
Followed recipe with the exception of lamb... I used ground turkey instead. It's amazing how much flavor is in smoked paprika.
Loved it so very much.
