i used his shepherd's pie recipe and made a couple alterations to make it paleo.
- 4-5 tablespoons of heavy cream (or coconut milk)
preheat your oven to 400 degrees and preheat a pot to medium-highish heat. add the olive oil and then the lamb. season with salt and pepper. as the meat cooks, crumble it into small pieces. meanwhile, prep your veg and herbs.
once the meat is cooked through, add the vegetables and herbs, garlic last. season with salt again. ***SIDE NOTE: it may seem like i use a lot of salt in my cooking. i was taught to season EVERY layer of your cooking. you should be tasting during each step of your cooking process, no matter what meal it is. you will end up using less salt overall.
you want the onions and carrots to get a chance to cook, so give them 6 or 7 minutes to get tender. finally add in the Worcestershire (or substitute), tomato paste and wine. reduced the heat a little bit and let the wine cook down a bit, about 3 more minutes.
bake the pie for about 20 minutes in a 400 degree oven or until everything starts to get golden and delicious. this made about 6 servings and believe it or not, it tasted better the second day!
we served it with steamed broccoli...
**during our meal, george asked, "so besides the white potatoes, is this meal pretty much paleo?"
WHITE POTATOES?! HE THINKS THE CAULIFLOWER IS WHITE POTATOES?? SUCCESS!!
