While searching the Internet I came across an interesting recipe using Guinness beer as an ingredient for Shepherd’s Pie. I had already made a chocolate cheesecake using Guinness as well earlier in the day, so what the heck! I absolutely loved the flavor of this Shepherds Pie. The Guinness really added an interesting flavor, the smell was amazing when it was cooking. We will definitely be making this recipe again!
GUINNESS SHEPHERD’S PIE
- 7 oz Guinness (half of a 14 oz can)
- 1 lb of Ground Beef
- 1 can of French Cut Green Beans
- 1 can of Tomato Soup
- 5 medium Yukon Gold Potatoes
- 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
- 1/4 Cup milk
- 1 Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Cup chopped Carrots
- 1 Cup Chopped Yellow Onion
- 4 Tbls Butter
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1/2 tsp Paprika
The very first step is to start your Mashed Potatoes. I washed and chopped my Yukon Golds and put them in a pot to Boil. It takes about 25 minutes for them to get to a Mashable state. Next step is to chop your onions and carrots. This can be a one Pan dish if you have the right pan. I used my Big Iron Skillet, which I LOVE! Now melt 2 Tbls of your butter and then sautee your veggies for about 3-4 minutes until just softening. Remove from pan and set aside.
Add ground beef to pan and brown. Drain fat from pan. Add veggies back to skillet. Add Guiness to skillet. Season with garlic powder and Paprika salt and pepper to taste. Cook until liquid disappears.
Drain green beans and spread over meat mixture. Spread 1 can of tomato soup evenly over the green beans.
Mash potatoes with 2 Tlbs. butter and milk. Add sour cream. Season with salt and pepper to your liking. Spread evenly over skillet mixture. Top with cheese.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes.
