Of Course it was Shepards Pie
I always try to keep some of the family traditions going to my kids.
This is one of their hands-down favorites
I start with 2 lbs of ground meat (usually pork and beef, but knock yourself out with whatever you fancy( brown them with a chopped onion IN A CAST IRON skillet.
There is no room for substitution here.
When almost completely brown but not quite, drain the fat pour in a bottle or can of Guinness beer and a handful or two of sliced mushrooms
let it simmer on med low for 10 min
add a small bag of frozen mixed veggies (carrots, peas, corn, beans, potatos, etc) and a can of golden mushroom soup. stir top with mashed potatoes (home made or box...up to you) bake in cast iron @350 for 30 min.
