Recipe Ingredients for Cottage Pie with Guinness by Skip Moore

2 pounds hamburger (80/20)
1 medium onion, chopped
2 carrots, peeled and diced
2 tbsp flour
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 tbsp rosemary
1 1/2 cups beef stock
1 1/2 cups Beer (Guinness Draught)
2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup milk

Recipe Directions for Cottage Pie with Guinness by Skip Moore

  1. Preheat the oven to 425⁰F.

  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the hamburger, seasoning with salt and pepper. Then transfer the hamburger from the pan to a bowl, leaving the rendered fat.

  3. Add the carrots and onion to the pan and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until softened. Depending upon how much fat rendered out of the hamburger, it might be necessary to add some additional oil, up to a couple of tablespoons. Add the parsley and herbs and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and cook an additional 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

  4. Add the stock and Guinness. (Cooking Note: I prefer the bottled Guinness for this recipe. Why? Because 1-1/2 cups is 12 ounces, and that means if I use a 14.9 ounce can there are 2.9 ounces left over. But to get 12 ounces requires TWO bottles at 11.2 ounces each, meaning 22.4 minus 12 equals 10.4 ounces for the cook if my math is correct, and my math is rarely incorrect when it comes to measuring out the Guinness).

  5. Bring the mixture to a boil, then add the meat, reduce the heat, and simmer, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Season with salt and paper to taste.

  6. Meanwhile, construct the topping of simple mashed potatoes. Cook the potatoes over medium-high heat until tender ? approximately 12 to 15 minutes ? then drain and mash with the butter and milk.

  7. Pour the filling into a large casserole dish or four individual casserole dishes. Top with the mashed potatoes. Add some small chunks of butter to the top and bake for 12 minutes. Optionally, for the last two minutes, turn on the broiler to brown the tops of the potatoes, but keep an eye on the process, as there?s a fine line between Nicely Browned and Seriously Burnt.

  8. This recipe screams for customization: don?t like carrots? Throw in some peas or corn. Add some garlic, chives or cream cheese to the potatoes. Sprinkle cheese over everything before it goes in the oven. The possibilities are nearly endless.

  9. Serve steaming hot. With Guinness, of course.
