Lori’s Quick and Easy Shepherd Pie

This recipe for Shepherd Pie could be called “Beef Farmer’s Pie” instead of “shepherd,” because there is not lamb in this recipe.  This is one of my family’s favorite recipes I make.  Here are the simple step-by-step directions.


2 lbs. extra lean ground chuck, browned and drained
1 onion, chopped and cooked with the beef
seasoned with onion powder, salt, pepper, to taste
2 cans mixed vegetables, drained
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
1 can green beans, drained
2 packs brown gravy mix
2 cups cold water
Instant mashed potatoes, prepared, for 8 servings.
(You may need extra instant potato flakes, for thickening)
Grated cheese

After the ground chuck beef and onion are browned and drained, add the four cans of veggies (mixed, corn, and green beans), two packs of gravy mix, 2 cups cold water. Stir well. Allow the mixture to cook until thick. If it doesn’t thicken, add about 1/4 cup instant potato flakes and it will thicken nicely.
