  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil; add the potatoes and cauliflower and cook at a boil until soft, about 20 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Pour the milk over the mixture and mash with a potato masher until smooth.
  2. Crumble the beef bouillon cube into the water; whisk until the bouillon is dissolved. Pour into a slow cooker. Add the stew meat, bacon, carrot, onion, garlic, and tomato to the slow cooker. Spread the mashed cauliflower and potato mixture over the meat and vegetable mixture. Sprinkle the Cheddar cheese over the top.
  3. Set the slow cooker to Low and cook for 8 hours, or, if you prefer, at High for 4 hours.

  • Editor's Note:
  • To achieve a crunchy top, layer the items into a 9x9-inch baking dish and bake covered for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Uncover the dish and bake another 10 minutes to get the top nice and crispy.

I'm kind of torn on this recipe. I loved the idea of Sheperds Pie in a crock pot but it didn't quite work out for me. I was concerned with the amount of juice that would come from the meat and the veggies and adding water to it. So I coated the beef chunks in flour to help thicken the liquids. I used about 3 T for a double recipe. It did thicken up the juices but not enough. For the potato/cauliflower mix I cut the milk out and used 2T butter and only about 2 T of cream, I didn't want them to be to moist with all the other juices going on in the dish. Also added salt and pepper to the potatoes. And I stirred in about 1/2 c of cheese into them as well. The juices from everything kind of seeped into the potatoes and sort of made them disappear. I even drained off about 1 cup of liquid during the cooking. I also sprinkled the cheese on top of the potatoes during the last 30 minutes of cooking. Its a really nice idea but just kind of fell flat. I did like the bacon added to it. Definitely needs some salt.

The bacon in this tasted strange.. but overall it was ok.
