Beef & Beer Shepherd’s Pie Recipe

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with this Irish twist on Shepherd’s Pie. The beer-braised beef is prepared with onion, celery and carrots, then topped with cheesy mashed potatoes for a casserole that’s guaranteed to get your St. Patty’s celebration (sham)rocking.

Take advantage of sales on ground beef and potatoes and use frozen green beans you may already have on hand to make this delicious Shepherd’s Pie recipe.  It’s a delicious option for eating in and a perfect way to feed your family.  Meat, veggies and potatoes in one pan!  Yes, please!

While fresh is best, you can always use potato flakes from the pantry for the mashed potatoes or prepared potatoes from the deli and see if anyone notices the difference.
