Shepard's Pie - Primal, Paleo, Kid Friendly and Clean Eating

Shepard's pie is my idea of comfort food and a real winter warmer.  There are a few alterations to the traditional recipe.

Shepard's Pie Ingredients


1tbsp. olive oil

1 large onion, chopped

2-3 medium carrots, chopped

500g pack lamb mince

2tbsp. tomato purée

1tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

500ml beef stock

900g sweet potatoes, cut into chunks

85g butter

3tbsp. milk


Heat the oil in a medium saucepan, then soften the onion and carrots for a few minutes.

When soft, turn up the heat; crumble in the lamb and brown, tipping off any excess fat.

Add the tomato purée and Worcestershire sauce, and then fry for a few minutes.

Pour over the stock, bring to a simmer, then cover and cook for 40 minutes, uncovering halfway.

Meanwhile, heat the oven to 180 degrees c / 350 degrees f.

Steam the sweet potatoes until they are tender.

When the sweet potatoes are cooked, mash them with the milk and butter to make a smooth paste.

Put the mince into an ovenproof dish, top with the mash and ruffle with a fork.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the top is starting to colour and the mince is bubbling through at the edges.

Leave to stand for 5 minutes before serving.
