I moved to Australia in 2013 and created this blog to help Irish people living in Australia. 10 million visitors later it now has evolved into a job board, flight company and offers support with many services Irish people need when they move to Australia. Pop over to my resources page(irisharoundoz.com/resources) to find every service and product I recommend. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you here again.

Ah go on, give it a share! Go on.. go on.. go on.


We asked you what Irish recipes you would like more of and we got a large number of requests for Shepherd’s Pie. For those that don’t know a cottage pie is made from beef whereas  a shepherd’s pie is made from lamb. Check out this very easy and simple recipe below :)

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons butter
1 medium chopped onion
2 sliced carrots
4 tablespoons cream flour
600ml/1 pint browning stock
chopped parsley and thyme
450g/1lb cooked minced beef
675g mashed potatoes

Method:

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the chopped onion. Cover and let sweat for a few minutes.
Add the carrots.

Stir in the flour and cook until it is slightly browned, then add the stock and herbs.

Bring to the boil and then reduce it a little by boiling for about 5 minutes.

Add the meat and bring back to the boil.

Place in a pie dish and cover with the mashed potatoes. Put into a medium hot oven (180c/350f/) for about 30 minutes.

Add a light dusting of grated cheese two or three minutes before taking it out of the oven.

Sit back and enjoy!

We also found this video which walks through a similar recipe :)
