shephard's pie

Shephard's pie
1 lb ground beef 

2 to 3 oxo boullion beef cubes or just beef boullion cubes

4 good size potatoes



1/2 teaspoon of garlic


Make sure meat is thawed and put it in good size pot .. tear it apart and add water to cover up the meat. then crumble the 2 to 3 boullion cubes. Add 1/2 tsp of pepper. Let this come to a boil then cut back to mid low temp with lid slightly cracked. Let this cook for a cook 5 to 6 hours. After it is done stewing then let it cool. After it has cooled put in fridge over nite. The next day bring out pot and clean off the solid fat on top of the meat. If need be add some more liquid to the meat and warm it up. What you want to do next is make mashed potatoes. Add butter, garlic, and milk. Put meat in bottom of glass dish make sure you drain off almost all the liquid you will use this to make a gravy. Then add the mashed potatoes on top. Put in oven at 325 until potatoes on top become a nice light golden crust. Take the liquid and bring it to a boil and then turn down heat as you add a mixture of cornstarch and water to thicken up the gravy to your desired taste. This is an awesome dish. Done by my mom for years!!
