Family Favourites: Mum’s Shepherds Pie

We were on cooking together and I wanted hubby to choose some dishes to make. This was one his mum (and mine) used to make all the time growing up.  I have adapted it only slightly to fit with both versions from both mums and what I had at time of cooking eg lactose free milk which normally be full cream milk.

The shaxo xing cooking wine may not be paleo. I didn’t have any red wine which is usually in the recipe. It is also the base for bolognaise sauce.

Aldi had beef brisket on special and brisket is perfect for slow cooker. I added this to slow cooker with 1 onion sliced and 1/4 bottle of salt reduced BBQ sauce. Cooked on low for 7hrs and it just falls apart. I am making it into homemade kebab with wraps &  quinoa tabouleh.

Steak and seafood

I wanted to do steak and chimichurri sauce i made. I didn’t really like the sauce but when i team it with the rest of the plate it was ok. This plate was 2 serves for me. I could only eat half and kept rest for another meal. (The chips fish cocktail and sea shanty with aioli for me is 1 meal in itself). Hubby ate the lot in one go. The Chimichurri sauce was a recipe from a free magazine I picked up at the supermarket.

Loved this one and so did hubby. Will be making it again. Its a lettuce wrap or san choi bau type dish but with Japanese flavours instead of Chinese.
