welcome to keto meals and recipes dot com,
as I promised when I did my celeriac
puree video, today I’m presenting my
adapted keto shepherd’s pie which I
based on a traditional shepherd’s pie
recipe, for this recipe I’m using tasty
ground lamb not beef, because using beef
is not a shepherd’s pie just ask
yourself what do shepherds watch over?
Sheep not cows, that’s why a real
shepherd’s pie is made with ground lamb,
so what do you call a similar recipe
that actually uses beef, the name of the
beef version is actually called a
cottage pie,
I found this name very interesting I
would have called it a cowboy pie
because Cowboys, cows, you know that whole relationship
anyway getting back to my
shepherd’s pie recipe you can see that
this looks very much like a traditional
shepherd’s pie, and when you make and
taste your shepherd’s pie, you will find
that this adaptation is a very good
approximation to the traditional Irish
shepherd’s pie, now for the macronutrient
ratio the macronutrient ratio is 2 to 1, with 9.1 grams of total carbs, 1.3
grams of soluble fiber, 0.5 grams of
insoluble fiber, resulting in 7.3 grams
of net carbs per generous serving, as
always I recommend you prepare your ingredients
weighing them out carefully
before you begin the recipe
the first thing you have to do is to prepare the
celeriac puree as per my previous video
I will provide the link to the celeriac
puree video in the description below
once you have made the celeriac puree
also known as celery root puree
set it aside for a moment, and now we’re
ready for step two which is to prepare
the meat, first heat the frying pan and
then add the oil, when the oil is nice
and hot add the grated onion, saute over
medium low heat until the grated onion
begins to look translucent that’s about
one minute, add the grated garlic and
stir and saute for about 30 seconds, then
add the grated carrots and saute for 1
to 2 minutes or until the carrots are
starting to look tender, stir to combine
all the ingredients and then push
everything to the perimeter of your pan
add the ground lamb to the center of the
pot, and cook until the ground lamb is browned
add the tomato puree, the Worcestershire sauce, your seasonings, which are
pepper, rosemary, and thyme, and the salt.
Stir everything together, and lastly add
the chicken broth, stir everything
together and cook for two minutes to
have all the flavors combine, while the
meat mixture is cooking, first preheat
the oven to 190 degrees Celsius or 370
degrees Fahrenheit, and take this time to
prepare the mashed celeriac topping, here
I had to take a bit of creative license
and it’s a bit different than the mashed
potato preparation, begin by getting your
bowl of celeriac puree you had
previously set aside, put your celeriac
puree into a mixing bowl, add the 2 egg
yolks, whisk your yolks into the puree
making sure they are well combined, then
sprinkle half of the grated Parmesan
cheese over the puree, and then whisk to
combine, and then repeat for the second
half of the grated Parmesan cheese, the
addition of this grated Parmesan is not
strictly part of the traditional recipe
but I really like the flavor it adds to
my celeriac puree, and the grated Parmesan
gives the puree a more mashed potato
mouthfeel and taste, but you can leave
the Parmesan cheese out or alternatively
you can substitute the Parmesan cheese
with another cheese such as cream cheese
now that the individual components are
ready I’m ready to assemble the
shepherd’s pie, at this point you can
choose to make one large 8 serving casserole
or 8 individual serving
portions, for the single serving portion
use individual serving sized ramekins,
but first grease each ramekin
for individual servings I used about 1/8 of
the prepared meat and 1/8 of the
prepared mashed celeriac, this makes it
very easy to create portion-controlled
and prepare ahead meals, and put 1/8 of
the cooked lamb mixture into the bottom
of each ramekin, press down gently then
top each ramekin with 1/8 of the
prepared celeriac mash
preparation, if you’re not serving right away
you can either pre-bake so all you
have to do is reheat when you’re ready to serve
or you can freeze before baking
and then you just have to bake before
serving to freeze either the baked or
non baked individual serving dishes
cover each individual ramekin with cling
wrap so that the cling wrap is actually
touching the surface of the celeriac
mash layer, then put each ramekin into a
sealable freezer bag and store in the
freezer until needed, the best way to
thaw this is to take your ramekins out
of the freezer the night before and
place it into the fridge overnight, and
when you want to serve either bake or
reheat depending on what you did before
freezing, alternatively you can prepare
the entire meal in one large casserole
pan, first grease your casserole dish
bottom and sides, then add the meat
mixture to the bottom of your casserole pan
spread out and press down on the
meat to even out this layer
for the assembly step I have found that the best
way to have a really nice presentation
and an even thickness for my mash layer,
is to place dollops of mashed celeriac
over the surface of the meat as I’m
showing here, use your spatula to then
spread out the celeriac mash so that
this top layer is distributed evenly
over the entire surface, the next step is
optional, but I recommend you do this
step because it will add nice crispness
and a golden color to the finished
shepherd’s pie, this optional step is to
grate some Parmesan cheese over the surface
now to bake, place your casserole
pan or ramekins if you’re doing
individual servings, uncovered into the
middle position of your preheated oven
and bake for 20 minutes,
take the finished casserole or ramekin
out of the oven and let it rest for 10
minutes before serving, if you’re serving
it from the casserole now partition it
into eight equal servings, but for this
video since I wanted to show you single
serving and casserole preparation
I used a smaller casserole, which equalled four
servings, and I also had four individual
serving ramekins. I hope you give this
