Steps To Make The Cheesecake Factory Shepherd’s Pie

1. Meat and Veggie Loaded!

Take a cast iron pan and melt butter in it. I am using a cast-iron so that I can save dishes and bake the pie in it. You can make the filling in a regular pan and bake the pie in a baking pan. Add the diced onions, carrot, and zucchini to the pan and cook them for 6-8 minutes. After that, add the beef to the pan and cook it until it browns completely.

Now, add the beef stock and the flour to the pan. Stir and cook them until the mixture thickens. When it has thickened, add the frozen peas and stir. Remove the pan from heat. Your filling is ready. 

2. The Creamy Mashup

In a bowl, add the tender potato cubes that you’ve boiled and mash them. Add cream and butter and mash them with the potatoes to mix. Season the potatoes with salt and pepper. Your creamy mashed potatoes are ready as well. It’s time to bake the pie. 

3. Where’s The Shepherd?

Spoon and layer the mashed potatoes over the beef and vegetable mixture in the cast-iron pan. Top the potatoes with some butter. This will give them a beautiful golden brown glow after baking. Place the pan in a preheated oven and cook the pie for 30 minutes at 375℉. 

Then, take the pie out, slice, and serve. Your delicious shepherd’s pie is ready! Yum Yum!
