  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 large potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 egg yolk


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a large skillet, cook ground beef over medium-high heat until browned and fully cooked, about 8-10 minutes. Drain any excess fat and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add the chopped onion, minced garlic, diced carrots, and celery. Cook until the vegetables are soft, about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Add the frozen peas, corn, tomato paste, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Stir to combine and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  5. Transfer the beef and vegetable mixture to a 9×13 inch baking dish. Spread it evenly in the dish.
  6. In a large saucepan, boil the chopped potatoes in salted water until they are tender, about 15-20 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return them to the saucepan.
  7. Mash the potatoes with milk, butter, and egg yolk until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Spoon the mashed potatoes over the beef and vegetable mixture in the baking dish, spreading it evenly to cover the mixture completely. Use a fork to make ridges on the surface of the potatoes.
  9. Bake the shepherd’s pie in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
  10. Let the shepherd’s pie cool for a few minutes before serving. Serve hot and enjoy!
