Not Your Traditional Shepherds Pie TNT

When I first got my computer I printed most everything underlined and in caps. This was in our local paper some years ago and is very good.


SHEPHERDS PIE


3 tablespoons oil

3 onions, finely chopped

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 1/2 pound lean ground beef

1 (14 1/2 ounce) whole peeled tomatoes

1/2 small can tomato paste

2 bouillon cubes

1 heaping tablespoon flour

1 cup white wine

3/4 cup water

salt and pepper to taste

3 large potatoes

3 ounces butter

1 cup milk

Salt and pepper to taste

3 carrots

2 tablespoon grated cheese




HEAT 3 TABLESPOONS OF OIL IN A LARGE FRYING PAN OVER LOW HEAT. ADD 3 FINELY CHOPPED MEDIUM ONIONS AND 3 FINELY CHOPPED GARLIC CLOVES. COOK UNTIL SOFT. TURN UP HEAT AND ADD 1 POUNDS GROUND BEEF OR GROUND LAMB, STIRRING UNTIL IT IS WELL BROWNED.



DRAIN OFF FAT AND ADD 1-14 OUNCE CAN OF TOMATOES, AND SMALL CAN TOMATO PASTE TO THE PAN ALONG WITH 2 BOUILLON CUBES AND 1 HEAPING TABLESPOON FLOUR. MIX WELL AND COOK FOR A MINUTE BEFORE ADDING 1 CUP WHITE WINE AND 3/4 CUP WATER. SEASON WELL WITH SALT AND PEPPER AND ADD TEASPOON TARRAGON. (OPTIONAL) SIMMER GENTLY FOR 15 MINUTES.

ALSO PEEL AND SLICE 3 CARROTS AND COOK IN SMALL AMOUNT OF BOILING WATER.



PUT THE MEAT MIXTURE IN A LARGE WELL-GREASED SOUFFL OR BAKING DISH. SPREAD CARROTS OVER MEAT AND PUT THE MASHED POTATOES ON TOP, COMPLETELY COVERING THE MEAT AND CARROTS. SPRINKLE 2 TABLESPOONS GRATED PARMESAN OR ROMANO CHEESES OVER THE POTATOES AND BAKE UNCOVERED FOR 35 MINUTES IN 375 F. OVEN. PLACE UNDER THE BROILER FOR A FEW MINUTES TO BROWN THE TOP.

It would, but we never have icy weather so we let the air conditioner take over and just cook whatever, whenever.

We don't get a lot of icy weather in Seattle either.. but, we do have our share of cold nights during the winter months.

I love Seattle, only been there a couple of times but what a great city. The market fasinated me and I remember wanting one of the big bunches of fresh flowers but knew I couldn't take them on the plane with me. *sigh* We went whale watching and saw bunches of them and took a sea plane to Victoria. Waaa I want to go back.
