Ingredients

Our shortcut version of a British classic, Cottage Pie, is made with tender top sirloin beef and veggies swimming in beefy gravy that's topped off with mashed potatoes and baked to perfection.

Serves: 6

Cooking Time: 55 min

 
Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 pounds top sirloin beef, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen sliced carrots, thawed
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 2 (12-ounce) jars beef gravy
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3 cups prepared mashed potatoes
  • Paprika for sprinkling

Directions

 
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 3-quart casserole dish with cooking spray
     
  2. Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper.
     
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown beef and onion 6 to 8 minutes. Drain off excess liquid, if needed.
     
  4. Add carrots, peas, gravy, and thyme; mix well and pour into casserole dish. Place mashed potatoes over top and sprinkle with paprika.
     
  5. Bake 45 minutes, or until heated through.
 
Note

To avoid a potential mess, place a baking sheet under the casserole dish, since this just might bubble over.
