leftover roast beef, cubed
onions, thinly sliced
homemade beef gravy
mashed cooked potatoes
I added corn, green beans and shredded cheddar cheese to the recipe and used instant mashed potatoes. It was great - a wonderful use for leftover roast beef. Even my husband liked it! I'll definitely make it again.
This was just not what I expected. The recipe looked good from the ingredients, but the three layers just did not meld. They remained distinct. The onions were a bit overwhelming, which would have been okay if they had flavored the meat or the potatoes, rather than staying an isolated flavor. The rest was quite bland.
Outstanding! I fixed this tonight using leftover roast beef from last night's dinner. I sauteed red onions, mushrooms and garlic ~ then I placed them over the meat and poured mushroom gravy over the top. Followed by the mashed potatoes. I left the dish covered with foil during the first 30 minutes of cooking. I took the foil off for the last 30 minutes. I'll be making this over and over again!
I didn't have onions on hand so I threw in some onion soup mix with this, and this disappeared so fast my head spun! When it comes out of the oven, let it set about 10 minutes so it's easier to slice and serves up neater. Brush some butter on top of the potatoes for a crusty top.
I've been making this for over a year now and we LOVE it! I cook my roast in the crockpot on HIGH for 6 hours (so it falls apart). Once shredded, I place it on the bottom of the baking dish. I saute onions and mushrooms and place that over the beef. Then the mashed potatoes go over that. Topped off with the juice from the crockpot pot. Delish!!
This is a very quick and easy recipe. Not to mention a great way to use leftovers. Being Irish and growing up eating the food, I have to add that whenever Sheppards Pie is made with any meat other than lamb, its called Cottage Pie.
I've been making this for a few years now and we just love it. I saute mushrooms with the onions and it's so good! This will forever stay in my recipe box!
Huge pot roast and I didn't know what to do with it! This is a great recipe. Prepare for lunch at work! I added 1/4 cup horseradish and scallions to the mashed potatoes for sophistication. I sauteed mushrooms for texture.
