A comfort food classic, our 30% less sodium Beef Broth with Red Wine adds the perfect twist.



  1. In a medium pot, cover potatoes with water. Bring to boil over high heat; reduce to medium and simmer, uncovered, for 12-15 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. While potatoes are boiling, prepare the beef mixture. Heat a large skillet over medium; add bacon and sauté 3-5 minutes, stirring often, or until starting to brown. Add beef; increase heat to medium-high. Cook 3-5 minutes longer, stirring frequently, until no pink remains. Remove meat from pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  3. In same skillet, sauté carrot and onion in remaining bacon fat over medium-high heat, 2-3 minutes or until starting to brown. Add mushrooms and garlic; cook 2-3 minutes longer, stirring often.
  4. Stir through tomato paste; cook 20-30 seconds. Whisk together broth and corn starch in a separate bowl. Add to pan after tomato paste is mixed through and fragrant.
  5. Stir constantly until mixture comes to a boil and begins to thicken. Remove from heat and set aside. Add beef into the mixture.
  6. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C) Prepare mashed potatoes for topping: Mash together cooked and drained potatoes, warmed milk or cream and butter. Season with salt to taste, if desired.
  7. Transfer beef mixture to oven-safe baking dish. Gently spoon mashed potatoes into several piles over the beef mixture. Use the back of the spoon to spread potatoes into an even layer.
  8. Place baking dish on foil lined tray to catch any drips. Bake 20-30 minutes in center of oven, or until bubbly and browned. Cool briefly before serving.

    Liquid mess

    Followed this recipe exactly and ended up with a liquid mess that didn’t allow the potato to sit properly on top. Tasted ok, a little bland, but didn’t make for a good Shepard’s Pie. Stew part didn’t thicken.
