Shepherd’s pie

This is just a guess, but it would make sense to me that shepherd’s pie contains lamb or mutton no? But I’ve always had it with beef for some reason. Maybe the shepherds don’t want to eat their sheep, so they eat cows instead… Anyway, mine was made with beef and pork (because I could only get lean beef at the butcher and you need some fat in a pie).

The potato and pie filling were both a bit too runny, so it didn’t really hold together on the plate. Sure tasted good though.

    Shepherds pie with beef? That’ll be a cottage pie then!

    @Al I guess so… though ever since I was a kid we had shepherds pie made with beef – it always confused me.
