    Sous chef took over the kitchen again tonight.

    Had a hunk of tri tip left from the Roadside Tri tip I did the other day. Let's make Shepards pie with a twist! Stuff the meat, gravy and veggies into tater skins and bake. Had enough filling and tater topping to make a mini pie for my lunch tomorrow too!!!

    Super simple. Bake taters. Allow to cool, scoop out tater and mash. I added butter and a bit of beef broth to the taters. Sauté onion, add frozen veggies, meat, garlic, salt pepper. Add 2-3 cups of beef broth, bring to simmer add corn starch (mix with broth then add to avoid lumps). Stir till gravy thickens. Fill tater skins, too with mashed taters. Too taters with melted butter place in 350 degree oven till taters on top are golden.

    This is a brilliant idea but I have to question the voracity of the post. It looks to me like the "sous chef" is doing all the work and Case is taking all the credit. I think we should arrange a SMF investigation to find out if the Sous Chef is the real genius of this operation. Just saying.

    Anyway, points for whoever is in charge!

    I love shepardspie and make it at least once a month. A really good way to use up left over pulled pork or brisket. Next time I'm going to try your tater skins idea. Wish I had a helper you you!
