  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 7 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • 1 parsnip chopped
  • 1 cup beef or chicken broth
  • ½ cup red wine
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp each rosemary, thyme, parsley or 1 tsp each if dried
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 lbs potatoes cut into chunks
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk, plus 1 tbsp


  • Chop and prep all vegetables. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • In a large, oven-proof pan, cook beef over medium-high heat until no longer pink. With a slotted spoon, remove meat from the pan and set aside on a plate.
  • Add 1 tbsp butter, and add the onion, garlic, carrots, and parsnip. Cook until vegetables begin to soften, about 8-10 minutes. Add the meat back to the pan and add the broth, wine, tomato paste, dried herbs, and red pepper flakes. Simmer until the mixture thickens, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • While mixture is simmering, place potatoes in a medium-sized pot and cover with water. Boil until potatoes are tender, 18-20 minutes.
  • Drain. Mash the potatoes with 6 tbsp butter, ½ cup of milk, and salt to taste.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and 1 tbsp milk. Spread potatoes over the meat mixture and brush with the egg wash. Bake until golden, 30-35 minutes.
