EZ Shepards Pie

  • Yield: 4-8 servings


1pound Lean Ground Beef (90/10 or 93/7)
1large Egg
2envelopes Dry Onion Soup Mix
1small Can Green Peas & Diced Carrots
1can 12 oz Heinz Homestyle Beef Gravy
1/2cup HP or A1 steak sauce
2-- 9 inch Pie Shells
1large Family Size 'Country Crock' or 'Bob Evans' Mashed Potatoes
2+packets Instant Oatmeal


In Medium-Large size bowl, mix Ground Beef with Egg, Beef Gravy and both packets of Onion Soup mix. Add HP or A1 steak sauce and mix again. Drain liquid from Peas & Carrots and add Peas & Carrots to beef and stir. Add 1 packets of Instant Oatmeal and mix. Beef mix should be the consistancy of a meatloaf: add 2nd packet (or more)  Instant Oatmeal if needed.

Divide beef mix between the 2 Pie Shells and level/smooth out.. Cover edges of pie crusts with aluminum foil to prevent burning: bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  While pies are baking, heat mashed potatoes up as per directions. fter pies are baked, remove from Oven and spread 1/2 of mashed potatoes over each pie. Remove foil from edge of crusts and bake an additional 15-20 minutes.

Uncooked pie can be frozen and baked later. Can substitute 1 Large Extra-Deep Dish (2+ inches deep) Pie Shell for 2 regular Pie Shells; if this is done, use 1 regular container of mashed potatoes.
