Cottage Pie Recipe with Grass-fed Beef // deliciousobsessions.com Follow Me on Pinterest

My husband loves dishes like this. It’s a one pan meal that incorporates beef and mashed potatoes, two of his favorite foods! Plus, it helps with clean-up too. I’m all about one dish meals!

It seems like the terms Cottage Pie and Shepherd’s Pie are used interchangeably and they are some of the oldest recipes in the books. But, did you know there is a difference?

The phrase Shepherd’s Pie didn’t appear until around 1870. Up until that point, this dish was called Cottage Pie and the term has been in use since the late 1700’s.

The recipes come to us from Ireland and Britain and there is a major difference between the two:

  • Authentic Cottage Pie uses beef
  • Shepherd’s Pie uses lamb

Thank you WikiPedia for clearing that up for us! :)

  2. I like to use leftover roast beef and a gravy made from beef bone broth instead of the soup and ground beef. In fact, I used leftover beef from slow cooked chuck roast with lots of organic Worcestershire last time. Delicious.
