Just googled what that is and it does sound delicious. Enjoy it.
I've never had a Shepherd's pie. Have only had lamb on a few occasions. Hard to find here. Have had cottage pie though.
It was a cottage pie, we couldn't find any lamb, I'm imagining it's very seasonal (since most farm animals will bang when they want to bang). There's a slight ethical sting in consuming lamb, so I'm fine with using a substitute
As long as it was good! :)
One of my favorite local dishes consist of lamb and cabbage. But seasonality is paramount. If off season, it's kind of a pointless dish, meat and a pile of cabbage. If in season, it's amazing, new cabbage can be mindbogglingly delicious
Your version is likely more European than ours here. Ground beef, mashed potatoes, vegetable soup, and ketchup.
What's with the ketchup! We found one Youtube recipe where the passion was fun enough (seemed like some philly ghetto boy super passionate about ghetto cooking, which is charming enough), untill he squirted ketchup into the mix! What!? WHY!??!
Just out of curiosity , what do you mean by there being an Ethical sting from eating lamb?
*slight* ethical sting, cus I don't care enough to make it into a debate: They're baby sheep. Calves do the same to me, and to some degree, whale meat also (cus it takes a whole goddamn day to kill a whale, they're simply too massive to kill efficiently)
Dad's way worse though, he feels bad eating certain vegetable sprouts. Then again, I once felt terrible chopping up a piece of garlic that had begun to sprout :I
Oh Lamb is specifically the baby sheep? I thought it was a catch all for Sheep meat. Welp one never stops learning.
Altho, I in general don't have problem eating calves, but I understand if someone has reservations about that.
The attraction to subadult slaughter is typically a matter of meat tenderness. I doubt they're very young when slaughtered, since this is a waste of potential mass per unit, but they are not fully mature. Same with chicken vs hen
The ketchup is like a little sauce you put on top. Like a zig zag. Not too much.
With meatloaf I mix brown sugar, ketchup, and mustard to make the sauce.
Hm, haven't had meatloaf since I was in the military. All the food there was protein packed. Also - and I found this out years later - up north, where I got stationed, the food is considered a morale boost, we had a "smörgåsbord" litterally, every breakfast and lunch, salmon, roast beef slices, shrimp and mayo, you name it
I remember reminiscing about the service, since all men of 19 (at the time) go through it here, it's a quick way to bond and find things in common, and the guy reacted with laughter, as if I really joked. Apparently, in the south, they got shit, just dry bread and cheese for breakfast. He couldn't believe it when I insisted, "Salmon!?!?"
