Whole30 Day 22: Shepherd's Pie

I like to think of Shepherd's Pie as an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink kind of dish because you can throw almost anything in with the meat.  I've posted Shepherd's Pie on my blog before but it's not whole30.  I made some tweaks and easily turned this dish into a yummy whole30 meal.

  • 2lbs sweet potatoes or yams, baked until soft and cooled
  • 1T evoo
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • about 5 small carrots, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • a couple handfuls of baby brussel sprouts, sliced
  • 1lb chorizo
  • 1/2 lb grass-fed ground beef
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup bone broth or other broth

  1. In a large skillet heat evoo and add onion, carrots, and celery. 
  2. Cook about 5 min and add brussel sprouts, cook for about 2 min
  3. Add chorizo and beef and cook until no longer pink
  4. Add seasonings to taste
  5. In a large mixing bowl add the sweet potatoes and broth (I was lucky enough to have some leftover homemade vegetable soup and used that for extra veggies!)
  6. Blend potatoes and broth until smooth
  7. If your skillet is oven proof, spread potatoes over meat mixture and put into oven.  If not, pour meat mixture into a baking dish and top with potatoes.
  8. Bake at 350˚F for about 30 minutes.
I super, super love this one pot meal!!
