Shepherd's Pie ( Beef )
1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt (more or less to your taste)
1 teaspoon ground black pepper (more or less to your taste)
2 cups brown gravy (approximate)
1 beef bouillon cube or equivalent base
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
1 quart mashed potatoes (use your favorite recipe)
8 tablespoons grated cheddar cheese
4 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese
1 prepared pie crust
Prepare mashed potatoes. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a hot skillet brown ground beef with chopped onions. When browned and the onions are tender, add the salt, pepper, garlic powder and flour. Cook for 3-4 minutes over medium heat, stirring often. Add the beef broth and gravy, cook until the mixture becomes thick and creamy. (If you like a thinner sauce just add a little more broth). Place mixture in prepared pie shell and top evenly with the warm mashed potatoes and grated cheese. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
