Shepherd’s pie is a dish that won’t be found on a metabolic balance® plan. One who seeks this warm comfort food made of lamb or beef stew covered with crusty mashed potatoes won’t be able to enjoy it until a treat meal or in Phase 4. That didn’t stop one metabolic balancer from discovering how to make a satisfying version that is in line with her plan and satisfies her entire family:
Shepherd’s Pumpkin Pie
I used 2 lbs of ground organic grass fed beef that I obtained directly from a local farm.
Chopped some long onions into small pieces first and used Ghee and some coconut oil to fry until soft in a shallow wide heavy pot. Broke beef into small bits after thawing, into the pot. I also added a half of a large fresh beefsteak tomato cut up into small pieces to the stewing beef….
- Added Herbemare and a little white pepper.
- Added Herbs of Provence – maybe a level teaspoonful.
- Garlic – 3 frozen squares from freezer.
- Basil – fresh – a few bunches of leaves, chopped.
- Sorrell – about 4 leaves, chopped.
I stirred it well and made sure it was all small pieces and crumbly, not lumpy. I used a flat end spatula to chop it up a bit.
I had baked a couple of green pumpkins the day before – about an hour at 350℉.
I cut up the pumpkins, discarded skin and seeds. I added it to a deep pot, with about 3/4 cup of water and mashed until smooth. Added a little sea salt, and enough [?] cinnamon. Mixed it well.
Put It All Together & Bake
Put the base of the ground beef into a large oval oven proof casserole – spread it around evenly and spread the pumpkin on top. Used a fork for decoration across the topping!
Baked the whole lot in a preheated over at 350℉ for a while. Served hot, with lightly steamed long Broccoli. Pretty good!! Yum!
