Mrs T’s Pierogies Recipe – Shepard Pie

easy shepherds pie

I’m always looking for a way to make things easier without sacrificing taste when it comes to recipes .  So this week for dinner I made an easy shepherd’s pie using Mrs. T’s Pierogies.  You can say that the shepherd’s pie has been Pierogified.

Why be creative with a classic recipe?  This winter has been long despite the fact it hasn’t been our coldest winter here in Ohio.  It seems like every time it warms up and the sun comes out, just a few days later we’re left with blizzard conditions.  So on the cold nights, I’m left desiring something warm to eat to keep from the boredom that comes in the winter.  I like to get creative in the kitchen.  Sometimes it turns out, sometimes it doesn’t.

This time, it did.  So good!

So what are pierogies? For those who haven’t had a pierogy they’re wonderful stuffed pasta. The pasta shell is semicircle-shaped and filled with deliciousness, including creamy whipped potatoes and cheddar cheese, which is what I used today for this recipe. They are the perfect food to enjoy with friends when you get together. I love them within a classic recipe like this one that I can enjoy with close friends, but they’re also delicious served alone.

Cook the  ground beef in a skillet with the onion on medium-high heat.  During the last few minutes add the garlic.  Drain the fat remaining once the ground beef is fully cooked, reserving 3 TB of it and adding it back to the pan.  Add the flour, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper.  Stir until the flour blends into the hamburger.  Add the beef broth and bring it to a boil – let simmer for about 10 minutes or until the sauce thickens.  Make sure to keep stirring occasionally!

  1. Do the edges of the pierogies get hard when baked?

    1. Lynette Rice says:

      The pierogies on top and around the edges will brown a bit and will have a harder texture on the edges.

  2. Just put this in the oven!

      Family loved it. It was easy to make. Will go into the rotation for sure.
