Shepherd’s pie is a comfort food that spans both time and distance. Popular on multiple continents, the layers of minced meat, tender vegetables, and fluffy potato topping is universally loved. This keto version swaps cauliflower for the mashed pota- toes and tender green beans for the traditional carrots, all on top of a flavorful base of ground beef.

Try substituting ground lamb for the beef, to get a truly authentic pub-style classic.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CAULIFLOWER
  • 1 pound 1 frozen cauliflower florets

  • 4 tablespoons 4 butter

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 onion powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 garlic powder

  • FOR THE BEEF
  • 2 pounds 2 ground beef

  • 1 small 1 onion, diced

  • 3 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 tablespoon 1 Worcestershire sauce

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 freshly ground black pepper

  • FOR THE VEGETABLES
  • 2 tablespoons 2 butter

  • 1/2 pound 1/2 green beans, chopped

  • 1/2 pound 1/2 white button mushrooms, sliced

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 garlic powder

  • 1 cup 1 shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  • TO MAKE THE CAULIFLOWER
  • In a large, microwave-safe bowl, combine all the ingredients.
  • Cover with a plate and cook in the microwave for 5 minutes on high. Stir well and cook, covered, for another 5 minutes or until tender.
  • Use a potato masher or large slotted spoon to mash the cauliflower to the consistency of mashed potatoes. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • TO MAKE THE BEEF
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine the beef and onion. Cook until the beef is browned and broken apart and the onion is translucent, about 8 minutes. Drain off any excess fat.
  • Add the garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper, and cook until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Evenly spread the beef in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.
  • TO MAKE THE VEGETABLES
  • In the same skillet used to cook the beef, combine the butter, green beans, mushrooms, and garlic powder. Sauté until the beans are tender, about 8 minutes. Spread the bean mixture on top of the ground beef in the casserole dish.
  • Evenly spread the mashed cauliflower on top. Sprinkle with the cheddar.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Turn the broiler to high and cook for 5 more minutes to melt the cheese and brown the top. Serve.

Notes

  • This recipe uses frozen cauliflower, but fresh cauliflower is also great. Regardless of which you select, the cauliflower can also be steamed on the stovetop instead of cooked in the microwave. Add about an inch of water to the pot, cover, and cook on medium-high heat for about 10 minutes or until the cauliflower is fork tender.
