How To Make A Delicious Irish Shepherd’s Pie – With Video

Share this 🍀😍

 I grew up with my mother regularly cooking us delicious Irish Shepherd’s pie. And now that I am an adult, I still crave it now and then. I found this well-put-together video on YouTube, and it did not disappoint. 

I’ve copied the recipe, so you don’t have to jump between the video. I have yet to make this recipe, but I think I will be making it this weekend. It’s always a good sign when you see someone using Guinness in an Irish dish. The video is below the ingredients. Enjoy.
