Super Quick Shepherd’s Pie

I make individual pies so this recipe is per person. Just multiply the recipe by the # of people you want to serve. What makes this recipe quick is the use of  frozen veggies and instant mashed potatoes. Since I keep kosher,  I can’t use milk or butter in the mashed  so I use chicken broth for the liquid!

Note: this is also the same recipe for beef pot pie. Simply swap out the mashed with pie crust for the topping.

  • 1/4 lb ground beef  (or 1 hamburger)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1/4 cup  steak sauce
  • 1 pinch dried thyme
  • 2 cups instant mashed potatoes
  1. Brown the ground beef and diced onion in a pan.
  2. Add the frozen vegetables.
  3. Stir in the steak sauce and thin it down with 1/4 cup of water or more  (so it makes a gravy and deglazes the pan).
  4. Add the thyme.
  5. When heated through, pour mixture into casserole dish.
  6. Make the instant mashed potatoes according to the directions on the box. I use chicken broth instead of the milk and add some garlic and onion powder to doctor up the potatoes.
  7. Spoon mashed potatoes over the top of the beef mixture in the casserole dish.
  8. Garnish with dried parsley if desired.
  9. Set under broiler (in oven or toaster oven)  for 5 minutes to brown mashed potatoes if desired.
