4 Add ground beef and sauté until no longer pink. Add salt and pepper. Add worcesterchire sauce. Add half a cup of beef broth and cook, uncovered, over low heat for 10 minutes, adding more beef broth as necessary to keep moist.

5 Mash potatoes in bowl with remainder of butter, season to taste.

6 Place beef and onions in baking dish. Distribute mashed potatoes on top. Rough up with a fork so that there are peaks that will brown nicely. You can use the fork to make some designs in the potatoes as well.

The children of St. Catherine’s can also be a part of our Emmanuel Dining Room Ministry by making PB&J sandwiches to be delivered with our Shepherd’s Pie on the 28th of each month. A wonderful way for our children to be connected to our community through works of charity and feeding the hungry.  

One loaf of bread makes approximately 11 sandwiches.  Wrap individually and place back into the bread loaf bag for delivery.  Please leave on the table in the gathering space by 9:30am on the 28th of each month.
