Oh guys, I really do love chicken pot pie’s rustic little sister. Or big sister. Or cousin. Whatever. I’m v much into the shepherd’s pie this year! And how fitting it is for a St. Paddy’s celebration.
To really develop the flavors in the beef and the saucey filling, I slow cooked the chuck steak in the crockpot for 8 hours with beef stock, tomatoes and red wine. The red wine deepens the whole flavor and really ups the ante on how freaking amazing your house smells when you make this! Plus, a whole bunch of cheese in the potatoes doesn’t hurt, either.
