What's this?

This is not your grandma's Shepherd’s Pie — it’s been given an upgrade with Guinness beer and Traeger smoke.

Ingredients

  • 6 russet potatoes

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 4 Clove garlic, minced

  • Pound ground beef

  • 1 1/2 Cup tomato sauce

  • 4 Cup Vegetables, frozen

  • Cup Guinness Extra Stout

  • Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 Teaspoon fresh thyme

  • To Taste salt and pepper

  • Butter, Sticks

  • Cup milk

  • 1 1/2 Cup shredded cheddar cheese

Steps

  • 1

    Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the potatoes. Let this heat up while you cook the meat mixture.
  • 2

    In a large skillet, cook the onion, add garlic. Add beef or lamb and cook until browned. Drain off grease.
  • 3

    Add tomato sauce and vegetables. Cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring often.
  • 4

    Add Guinness, Worcestershire sauce, thyme and salt and pepper to taste. Boil until the liquid has reduced by half and thickened (about 15 minutes).
  • 5

    Add the potatoes to the boiling water and cook for 15-20 minutes or until soft but not mushy. Drain and cool. Mash the potatoes with the butter, milk, salt and pepper to taste.
  • 6

    Once meat mixture is done cooking and the potatoes are mashed, divide the meat mixture between two dishes. Top with mashed potatoes then with the cheese.
  • 7

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • 8

    Bake for 30-45 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown and cheese is melted. Serve hot. Enjoy!
