Paleo Shepherds Pie

This hearty Paleo Shepherd’s Pie recipe is a fantastic dish for a family dinner or a dinner party.

Rather than using a potato mash like in the traditional recipe we instead use a delicious cauliflower puree. This cauliflower puree gives you a lovely creamy mash topping that tastes just as good as the potato version. In the end, you will end up with a fantastic low carb pie that everyone can enjoy.

In this recipe, I use ground beef rather than the ground lamb, livers and brains and other ingredients that were often used in the more traditional recipes. If you prefer a particular type of ground meat then you can easily replace the ground beef with that, it’s entirely up to you.

It’s important to note that if you’re running low on time, then even the pie filling makes for a fantastic meal. This filling can be cooked completely in the pan and won’t need to be placed in the oven. This method will save you a considerable amount of time in the kitchen. However, it won’t be very pie-like.

Cooking Tips

  • If you don’t like ground beef, you can substitute it with any kind of other ground meat such as chicken or lamb.
  • Assuming you prefer the more classic shepherd’s pie, you can add stuff like lamb brains or liver into this dish.
  • If you just want single servings of the pie, I recommend using some nice ovenproof ramekins. You can easily freeze these down so that you can have a quick single serve meal that you can just either oven or microwave.
