For St. Patrick’s Day this year I decided to have something different than corned beef to celebrate my Irish ancestry.
However, I failed to notice that it had beef along with the name on the box.
A traditional Irish Shepherd’s Pie would be made with lamb instead of beef. However, the term is not always used consistently as for many foods the boundaries between food names are often blurred or have regional uses.
I am not sure if I would be able to find a prepackaged Shepherd’s Pie made with lamb, but perhaps I can get some ground lamb next year and make a traditional Shepherd’s Pie for St. Patrick’s Day.
