Recipe Ingredients for Shepherds Pie

1 tbsp canola oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
4 large carrots, chopped
1 pound Extra Lean Ground Beef
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp Tomato Paste
2 tsp dried mixed herbs
1 cup fat-free, reduced sodium beef broth
1 cup frozen peas
2 1/2 pounds potatoes
1/2 cup fat-free milk
1 tbsp light butter
2 cups corn
2 cups green beans

Recipe Directions for Shepherds Pie

  1. In a large pot, heat canola oil on medium-low heat. Saute onions and carrots until softened. Turn up heat to medium-high and add beef; cook until no longer pink. Add Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, herbs and broth. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes. Add corn and green beans, then simmer 5 minutes more.

  2. Tip: If sauce seems too watery for your liking, combine 1 tsp of cornstarch into 1/8 cup of water and stir into beef mixture.

  3. While sauce is simmering, bring a large pot of water to boil. Add potatoes, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until tender, about 15-20 minutes. Drain water. Add milk and light butter. Mash with a potato masher until smooth. Season if you like.

  4. Pour sauce into an 11-inch by 7-inch baking dish and allow to cool slightly. Top with potato. Optional: sprinkle with 1/3 cup reduced-fat cheese.

  5. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
