Skillet Shepherd's Pie
We wanted to simplify this comfort food favorite and add it to our weeknight dinner rotation, without losing any flavor.
Why This Recipe Works
We thoroughly browned the beef in butter for the richest flavor and color. Briefly cooking the flour used to thicken our Skillet Shepherd’s Pie removed its starchy flavor. A bit of Worcestershire sauce added savory depth to the filling.
To streamline the recipe, instead of the traditional mashed potato topping, we use frozen hash browns, heating them in the microwave first so they only needed minutes to brown in the oven.
