I made Shepherd's Pie for dinner tonight. I made real gravy. I cubed real sirloin, used freshly flash-frozen peas, real onion, fresh carrots and mashed real Russett potatoes.
The pie has to contain lamb, no?

Assuming you couldn't catch a shepherd, of course!

They don't grow lamb on ranches.
Lamb is grown on Aussie sheep stations!

PS Mark probably will say that they grow a bit on the Canterbury Plains too... But that may be just a rumour.

Why not comfortable?
Hard foam-filled canvas seats, with minimal fore-aft and up-down adjustment coupled with a still suspension. It`s a bumpy ride.

My wife's family ran cattle in Colorado. Sheep were questionable, at best. If you want we can call it Cattleman's Pie.

My daughter and SIL are on some kind of no carb diet for a two week span, and the other day she made a Shepherd's Pie using mashed cauliflower for the topping.
Said it was yummy.
Her picture of it did look good, but I'll pass.

FYI: The original term was "cottage pie" which first appeared in the late 1700's for a dish made in a pie plate containing any kind of meat and sometimes vegetables with a bed of mashed potatoes below and a crust of potatoes atop, baked until the top layer of potatoes is lightly browned. The term "shepherd's pie" began to appear in the late 1800's as a synonym, then in folk use in some areas because of the word "shepherd," "shepherd's pie" was used if the meat were lamb, and "cottage pie" if beef or other meat (can be pork, chicken or turkey). At least in New England, the filling is usually beef and niblets corn (cut from leftover cooked corn-on-the-cob), sometimes peas as well, and it is commonly called "shepherd's pie."

There's a little place here in the States called Montana.
There are rumors of occasional sheep sightings there, as well.

In the USA, Montana ranks 8th in number of sheep, 11th in cattle. The top state for sheep is Texas*, followed by CA, CO, WY, and Utah is fifth. I thought Utah would rank higher as sheep raising there is a quasi-religious occupation.

*Texas is also #1 in cattle, and that is always promoted over being #1 in sheep, but there are vastly more cattle (estimated over 11 million) in Texas than sheep (over 700,000). But then, cattle-raising in Texas is also a quasi-religious occupation.

Could it be that the Texas sheep are actually vastly bigger than cattle?

Come on, that would be very Texan...

I'll pass too...unless it is stuffed with Spam and Velveeta?

Here we call them Pot Pies and Marie Callender's are sold in most every grocery. They are delicious....and only 84 grams of fat per teaspoon serving.

In Texas it is easy to spot an outsider......they have sheep roaming their land. Real Texans have cattle. No Real Texan would ever eat the vile meat of a rancid sheep. Think about it....Chicken Fried Sheep? Turns my stomach just typing it.

Real meat!




Processed....and delicious! You'd need an entire sheep to make this dish, and then it would still be too rank to eat!


Ft Worth is known as Cowtown....we don't have any stinkin' Sheeptown.


Sheep is like lewdfish....not meant for human consumption.

Goat? Goats are delicious, we BBQ them here and they are superb! Not like a good Chicken Fried Steak, but still a delight to consume!

Sheep bad! Goat good! Cows delicious!

Regards!

Here a "pot pie" has a pie crust = a flour & water etc. crust, either top & bottom or only on top (commercial product advertised as "no soggy under crust"), with a filling that's stew-like = meat (most commonly chicken, and commonly called "chicken pot pie") plus a variety of vegetables and gravy. Marie Callender's is available, but the grand old commercial version is Swanson's Chicken Pot Pie. I would judge it quite different from what I know as shepherd's pie, introduced to me in home-made version by my mother-in-law (who thought highly of me and with whom I got along famously). It had more meat (she generally used ground beef) and much less gravy than a typical commercial chicken pot pie.
