Shepard’s Pie Soup

With those rich and savory flavorings you love so much inside a casserole, now you can enjoy your favorite comfort food in a soup!


Make sure you use extra lean ground beef. Since everything is cooked in one pot together, you won’t be able to drain out excess oil. If you don’t want to take the extra time to make the mashed potato topping, then just add all the potatoes into the pot instead. ShepardsPieSoup2

Once you add the broth, let the soup simmer until everything is tender.ShepardsPieSoup3

Just before serving, add the frozen peas. They will only take a few minutes to heat throughout, then you can start dishing it up.ShepardsPieSoup4
