Beef Cottage Pie

This is a one dish meal that anyone can easily make. The original Shepherd’s pie is made of lamb as its name suggests. It’s such a versatile dish.  The meat can be replaced with beef or chicken and and you can use vegetables of your choice. The mixture of meat and vegetables is covered with a thick layer of rich buttery mashed potatoes. Here’s my version of Beef Cottage Pie.
