Manly Shepherd's Pie

There are some foods that just speak to us men, and Shepherd's pie is one of them. This dish is very easy to make and just one pot needed.


1lb lean ground beef (I used venison)
1 onion, chopped
1 shallots, chopped
8oz sliced mushrooms
4 cups frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, onion, green beans, corn, peas), thawed
1 cup beef broth
3 tbsps. ketchup
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup diced pancetta
1 container of premade mash potatoes
3 tbsp. sour cream

Step 1: 

Over medium heat, brown the meat.

Step 2: 

While the meat is browning, chop the onion and shallot.

Step 3: 

Transfer the meat to a Dutch oven and add mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes.

Step 4: 

Add onions and shallots.

Step 5: 

Add the vegetables and cook for another five minutes.

Step 6: 

Add the broth and cook on high.

Step 7: 

Turn down to simmer and add ketchup. Be sure to stir well.

Step 8: 

Heat your oven to 375. Remove the Dutch oven from heat. Add pre-made mash potatoes in a bowl (told you this will be easy).

Step 9: 

Add sour cream and 1/4 of cheese.

Step 10: 

Mix well and add cover with potatoes in the Dutch oven.

Step 11: 

Add more cheese and pancetta.

Step 12: 

Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

Step 13: 

Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before you serve.
