Gordon Ramsay showed the earth how to make a fantastic Shepherd’s Pie on his hit show F word
This dish is really delicious you can mess it up and this will still leave you feeling almost like you’re in heaven! As always, use fresh herbs and vegetables. When using the freshest ingredients, it’s tough to make a meal that doesn’t taste good.
I prepared this dish for our family tonight and totally bungled it, yet everyone remaining happy! I was seeking to cook over a deadline, while allowing my eight years old son to aid, and hold conversations with my fiance. I was also seeking to use an ingredients list from another food site which has been lacking the majority of the main ingredients. Tonight makes it all the more clear for me that the web needs this web site, as countless others receive the ingredients and recipe wrong! So on for the meat and potatoes (literally).
This is usually a recipe that I firmly believe really should be left on the taste with the cook. Please takes place own judgement for the amount of each ingredient unless specified.
Watch the recording of Ramsay at the end in the post to discover it completed by the best.
– The Filling:
– Olive Oil (2 Tbsp)
– Ground Lamb or Beef (about 1.5 lbs)
– 1 Large Carrot (grated)
– 1 Large Onion (grated)
– Fresh Rosemary
– Fresh Thyme
– Minced Garlic (I used 4 cloves)
– Worcestershire Sauce (several splashes)
– Tomato Puree or Paste (no greater than a small can)
– Red Wine (several glugs)
– Chicken Stock (unsure, nonetheless it looks like about 1/4 cup)
– Golden Potatoes (about 1.5 lbs)
– Heavy Cream ( 1/4 cup)
– Butter (3 1/2 Tbsp)
– Egg Yolks (2)
– Parmesan Cheese (1/4 cup, minimum)
Dice the garlic
Separate your herbs on the stems
Separate your Egg Yolks
Peel and Slice your potatoes into even pieces
Open your wine if it’s not already
Open your can of Tomato Paste
Cooking the Potatoes:
This part is straightforward as pie (no pun intended), just boil some water, throw some salt along with your potatoes in, and place a timer for a quarter-hour – begin your filling. Upon the timer going off, take your potatoes out and strain the river off. Put potatoes back into the pan, or to a medium mixing bowl. Mash the potatoes using their ingredients from above whilst warm (your filling needs to be about produced by this point)
Cooking the Filling:
Pour Olive Oil to a hot, rather large pan, adding meat. Stir meat as though your life will depend on it a couple of minutes so it’s nice and brown, and broken into small pieces. Add your Rosemary, Thyme, and Garlic, then stir even more. Quickly add your Carrot, and Onion, stir longer. The idea at here is to have everything to some minced consistency.
Add Worcestershire Sauce, stir, add Tomato Puree, stir, add Red Wine and sweat down for any minute or two. Add chicken stock and cook for 3 more minutes. I made mine devoid of the stock because I didn’t notice it the 1st time I watched the show. You can add it, or let it rest out.
Scoop your meat mixture right into a deep casserole or another oven safe dish and after that spoon the mash extraordinary. Spread the mash over the top in the mix together with the bottom from the spoon and sprinkle a generous area of Parmesan cheese extraordinary. Poke the very best with a fork repeatedly to give it a peaked look and place it in the oven at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes to brown the potatoes and hang the pie. Serve it and watch people melt! Oh I love Shepherd Pie!
