How to make shepherds pie with dauphinoise potatoes
- All vegetables, including potatoes, must be peeled and chopped.
- Now Place the potato in a saucepan and cover with water. While you work on the other items, boil the potatoes.
- After this, Place ground beef in a large skillet and heat it on medium heat. Once the meat is browned, add the onion, carrot, and celery to the skillet.
- Now Let the vegetables cook until they are softened.
- Mix the flour with the water until well combined. After this, add the tomato paste and red wine. Mix everything, bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to simmer for about 15 minutes. After it has thickened, you can season it with salt and pepper.
- After 15 minutes, add the mushrooms and corn. Stir it and continue cooking for a few minutes more to allow the corn and peas to heat through.
- After this, the potatoes are fully cooked, drain them, and place them in a large bowl. Use a potato masher to mash the butter. Next, add the milk and cream. Continue to mash the mixture until it becomes smooth. Although it may appear too liquidy, it will soon set up well. Salt and pepper it.
- Spread the beef mixture in a 9×13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle the cheese over the top. Next, add the mashed potatoes to the top of the cheese layer. Spread the cheese layer with a spoonful of butter. Smoothen the top, but not completely. I like to make dents so it can be seen once it’s browned.
- Place it in a 425degF-oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until the potato is golden brown. Enjoy! Garnish it with fresh parsley.
