Irish Shepherd's Pie

Good basic Shepards Pie. If you use good fresh ingredients you will get good results obviously. It doesn't say to drain the beef fat, but definitely do it. Watch the salt depending on what type of broth you use. Lots of room for experimentation with spices if you feel up to it, but as is everyone in the family enjoyed this comfort food.
