35 Min

We took the taste of an English favorite and added a healthy dose of comfort to create Shepherd's Pie Soup. Mmm! Soup's on, and it's not just a plain old soup!

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3 cups water
  • 4 3/4 cups beef broth
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen diced potatoes (about 4 cups)
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups instant potato flakes

What to Do

  1. In a soup pot over medium-high heat, cook ground beef 8 to 10 minutes, or until browned and no pink remains; drain.
  2. Add remaining ingredients except potato flakes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook 15 minutes. Stir in potato flakes and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until thickened. Serve immediately.

Just ok

After reading the recipe, I thought this recipe is basically a good idea. However, I do question the "Shepherd's Pie" because I use tomato in some form when I make it (mostly because I have a little of this and that). I'm debating on trying this when the weather is cooler. Has anyone added tomatoes, sauce or crushed maybe? I would, as others do, prefer chopped onion cooked with the ground beef and fresh potatoes. Thank you for any suggestions.

I meant real onions.

I would use garlic salt or powder, and real potatoes.

Liquified SOS without the toast.

I was disappointed in the lack of flavor. I thought this recipe was the perfect storm for me I love shepherd's pie, it looks like the dog's dinner, I have the taste buds of an 8 year old! I even ramped it up a couple of notches. I added Worcestershire sauce to the ground beef after cooking it. I used all beef broth (no water). I threw in some crumbled bacon added a cup of cheddar cheese after adding the potato flakes. Oh well!

This was the easiest, and delicious Shepherds Pie I have made. Very simple to make an very inexpensive to make.

I made this last night for dinner. The kids loved it but my DH said it was just ok and wouldn't be begging me to make it again. I thought it was just ok too but I'm glad I tried it. Easy to make and warms you up on a chilly night.

Is it possible to make this in the slow cooker? If so would I add the flakes in at the end to heat through/thicken? Thanks for your input!

Although we have not tried preparing it this way in the Test Kitchen, it should work. We would suggest browning the meat first and then combining all ingredients except the potato flakes and cook in slow cooker for 4 hours on low or until potatoes are tender. Then add in potato flakes and cook a little longer until thickened. Enjoy!

I love shepard's pie anyway, and this soup sounds yummy. If it is as thick as I think it will be, I might just serve it over biscuits or toast and make a meal of it.

I often make Shepard's Pie for my family and it is much loved. I will definately make this to warm their bellies this winter. Thanx

I made this recipe many years ago, but never wrote it down. My daughter and I enjoyed it a lot. I made it a little bit different. I love it. My daughter must have been about 10 to 12 years old, and is now 28. I have searched for this recipe and am glad to have it again. Of course, I will make it the way I remember to from long ago. I just needed the ingredient suggestions again. Thank you No water, 5 cans beef broth No diced potatoes No onion powder, diced onion No salt or pepper Instant potato to thicken / desired consistancy
