I will be making this again. I substituted refrigerated store bought mashed potatoes I had on hand.Please keep on providing instant pot recipes. I have struggled with my recipes tasting bland in it.
Delish and easy! Made a couple of substitutions of course – I used turkey burger instead, used Guinness instead of chicken broth, used corn instead of celery and added cheese before broiling!
Our family loved it!
Made this but had a few adjustments that made my husband say that this recipe needs to go on repeat:– three potatoes. It was a bit much because 4 made it half potatoes and half filling. We wanted more filling. Cut the potatoes in half.– chicken broth instead of vegetable broth– once done in the pressure cooker, I went and grabbed a tbsp of flour and poured it into the mix so that the sauce thickened up a bit.
As you say, you used beef instead of lamb. Pedantically, that makes it a Cottage Pie rather than a Sheppard’s Pie.
My potatoes must have been way too big. I had to remove the meat mixture and do the potatoes for another 8 mins with more water. That still didn’t cook them all the way through! I think next time I will cut them in half or quarters.
Great recipe, my family loved it! We had no leftovers, so it’s a success.
I’m an instant pot fan, but this doesn’t sound any easier than making shepherd’s pie the traditional way. You may save a little time cooking the potatoes, but not much.
Hi, John! It might not save a ton of time overall, but for me, it feels WAY easier. For one thing everything basically happens in one pot so clean-up is a lot less involved. And I like that I can walk away from the Instant Pot while it’s cooking and do something else instead of monitoring ingredients as they simmer on the stovetop. I also think really like steaming the potatoes this way instead of the traditional boiling method; it just feels simpler and less cumbersome to me. I suppose it’s really a matter of perspective, but this really works for my schedule and the way I cook!
Just made this and my kids and I inhaled it! So much easier than the traditional way! And I liked that I didn’t have to use multiple pots and pans. The potatoes were extra good — tasted like they absorbed some of the flavor from the veggie/meat mix. I also used ground beef instead of lamb. Thanks for sharing. I’ve had my Instant Pot for about a year and I’m just getting comfortable with it. Will make this again!
