Shepherd’s Pie | Keto Recipes | Paleo Recipes


welcome to keto meals and recipes dot com,
as I promised when I did my celeriac puree video, today I’m presenting my
adapted keto shepherd’s pie which I based on a traditional shepherd’s pie
recipe, for this recipe I’m using tasty ground lamb not beef, because using beef
is not a shepherd’s pie just ask yourself what do shepherds watch over?
Sheep not cows, that’s why a real shepherd’s pie is made with ground lamb,
so what do you call a similar recipe that actually uses beef, the name of the
beef version is actually called a cottage pie,
I found this name very interesting I would have called it a cowboy pie
because Cowboys, cows, you know that whole relationship anyway getting back to my
shepherd’s pie recipe you can see that this looks very much like a traditional
shepherd’s pie, and when you make and taste your shepherd’s pie, you will find
that this adaptation is a very good approximation to the traditional Irish
shepherd’s pie, now for the macronutrient ratio the macronutrient ratio is 2 to 1, with 9.1 grams of total carbs, 1.3 grams of soluble fiber, 0.5 grams of
insoluble fiber, resulting in 7.3 grams of net carbs per generous serving, as
always I recommend you prepare your ingredients weighing them out carefully
before you begin the recipe the first thing you have to do is to prepare the
celeriac puree as per my previous video I will provide the link to the celeriac
puree video in the description below once you have made the celeriac puree
also known as celery root puree set it aside for a moment, and now we’re
ready for step two which is to prepare the meat, first heat the frying pan and
then add the oil, when the oil is nice and hot add the grated onion, saute over
medium low heat until the grated onion begins to look translucent that’s about
one minute, add the grated garlic and stir and saute for about 30 seconds, then
add the grated carrots and saute for 1 to 2 minutes or until the carrots are
starting to look tender, stir to combine all the ingredients and then push
everything to the perimeter of your pan add the ground lamb to the center of the
pot, and cook until the ground lamb is browned add the tomato puree, the Worcestershire sauce, your seasonings, which are pepper, rosemary, and thyme, and the salt.
Stir everything together, and lastly add the chicken broth, stir everything
together and cook for two minutes to have all the flavors combine, while the
meat mixture is cooking, first preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius or 370
degrees Fahrenheit, and take this time to prepare the mashed celeriac topping, here
I had to take a bit of creative license and it’s a bit different than the mashed
potato preparation, begin by getting your bowl of celeriac puree you had
previously set aside, put your celeriac puree into a mixing bowl, add the 2 egg
yolks, whisk your yolks into the puree making sure they are well combined, then
sprinkle half of the grated Parmesan cheese over the puree, and then whisk to
combine, and then repeat for the second half of the grated Parmesan cheese, the
addition of this grated Parmesan is not strictly part of the traditional recipe
but I really like the flavor it adds to my celeriac puree, and the grated Parmesan
gives the puree a more mashed potato mouthfeel and taste, but you can leave
the Parmesan cheese out or alternatively you can substitute the Parmesan cheese
with another cheese such as cream cheese now that the individual components are
ready I’m ready to assemble the shepherd’s pie, at this point you can
choose to make one large 8 serving casserole or 8 individual serving
portions, for the single serving portion use individual serving sized ramekins,
but first grease each ramekin for individual servings I used about 1/8 of
the prepared meat and 1/8 of the prepared mashed celeriac, this makes it
very easy to create portion-controlled and prepare ahead meals, and put 1/8 of
the cooked lamb mixture into the bottom of each ramekin, press down gently then
top each ramekin with 1/8 of the prepared celeriac mash
preparation, if you’re not serving right away you can either pre-bake so all you
have to do is reheat when you’re ready to serve or you can freeze before baking
and then you just have to bake before serving to freeze either the baked or
non baked individual serving dishes cover each individual ramekin with cling
wrap so that the cling wrap is actually touching the surface of the celeriac
mash layer, then put each ramekin into a sealable freezer bag and store in the
freezer until needed, the best way to thaw this is to take your ramekins out
of the freezer the night before and place it into the fridge overnight, and
when you want to serve either bake or reheat depending on what you did before
freezing, alternatively you can prepare the entire meal in one large casserole
pan, first grease your casserole dish bottom and sides, then add the meat
mixture to the bottom of your casserole pan spread out and press down on the
meat to even out this layer for the assembly step I have found that the best
way to have a really nice presentation and an even thickness for my mash layer,
is to place dollops of mashed celeriac over the surface of the meat as I’m
showing here, use your spatula to then spread out the celeriac mash so that
this top layer is distributed evenly over the entire surface, the next step is
optional, but I recommend you do this step because it will add nice crispness
and a golden color to the finished shepherd’s pie, this optional step is to
grate some Parmesan cheese over the surface now to bake, place your casserole
pan or ramekins if you’re doing individual servings, uncovered into the
middle position of your preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes,
take the finished casserole or ramekin out of the oven and let it rest for 10
minutes before serving, if you’re serving it from the casserole now partition it
into eight equal servings, but for this video since I wanted to show you single
serving and casserole preparation I used a smaller casserole, which equalled four
servings, and I also had four individual serving ramekins. I hope you give this
recipe a try, I’m sure you will enjoy it if you’re new to my channel or have not
