Columbus, Ohio — St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner, and we are getting in the spirit.
Min Dins founder Esther Weisman shares her recipe and tips to making the perfect Shepherd’s Pie to Good Day Columbus' Katie McKee and Cameron Fontana.
Shepherd’s Pie Recipe:
1 lb package of 4% lean ground beef
1 container diced yellow onions
2T Zhoug Sauce
4 T red pepper eggplant spread
1 bag frozen mashed potatoes
Step 1: Place your ground beef in a fry pan over m/h heat and start breaking up using your handy dandy chopping tool. ( See YouTube video.)
Step 2: Once meat is all broken up add your diced onions and brown with the meat.
Step 3: While your meat is browning ( to save time you want to do this now) put all of the frozen mashed potato disks in a microwave safe dish with 1T of water and microwave for 7 minutes covered with a microwave safe lid.
Step 4: When meat and onions are done add 2T Zhoug Sauce, and 4T of the red pepper/eggplant spread. Mix thoroughly with the meat and onions.
Step 5: Your potatoes will be done around the same time as the meat. Remove from microwave and stir so there are no lumps. Spread all of the potatoes over the entire meat mixture. Cover with a lid and heat for about one minute. Slice into 9 pie size slices. ( can also be refrigerated and re-heated for later use.)
Step 6: Enjoy!
