SHEPPARD'S PIE / PASTEL KENTANG




I am a little bit confused when come to this dish, some called it potato casserole, some named it potato schotel , some named it potato pastel and some named it Sheppard Pie, all have the same ingredients and the same cooking method. Since I was introduced with Sheppard Pie, I stick to the name. I love this so much. I was introduced to this and learned to make this from a dentist friend. She made a lovely Sheppard Pie and her husband was truly proud of her specialty.

Yesterday I saw this on Farah Quinn - Ala Chef, hers was called Pastel Kentang / Potato Pastel. She made it, with two layers of potatoes, look's better and more tempting. May be the next time around I will make two potato layers.


Ingredients
  • 500 g ground round chicken/ 500 g daging ayam atau daging kisar
  • 1 cup chopped onion / 1 cawan bawang besar cincang
  • 1/2 (8-oz.) package fresh mushrooms, sliced / 1/2 tin cendawan butang
  • garlic clove, minced / 5 bawang putih cincang

  • Combine all and set aside / Campurkan semua bahan dan letak sebelah
  • Preparation
  • 1. Brown beef in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring often, 10 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink. Remove ground beef from skillet using a slotted spoon; reserve 2 Tbsp. drippings in skillet. Reduce heat to medium. / Panaskan kuali dan masukkan daging, masak sehingga berubah warnanya. Alihkan daging dan letak sebelah.
  • 2. Sauté onion, mushrooms, and garlic in hot drippings over medium heat 10 to 11 minutes or until tender. Stir in ground beef, peas, and next 4 ingredients. Sprinkle flour over meat mixture.

You can make 1 st layer with potatot, 2nd layer with meat mixture and final layer with potato or meat layer with potato. / Saya cadangkan buat 3 lapisan, lapisan pertama dengan kentang, lapisan kedua dengan daging dan lapisan terakhir dengan kentang.

Saya amat menggemari sajian ini yang saya belajar dari seorang doktor gigi di Alor Setar...Yummy..kawan saya ini buat the best Sheppard Pie, sampai malula dibuatnya, anak-anak saya tidak segan-segan menghabiskan hidangan yang dijamukan kepada kami anak beranak.  Resipi ini sebenarnya mempunyai banyak gelarannya, ada yang panggil Pastel, ada yang panggil Casserole, ada yang panggil schotel dan paling famous ialah Sheppard Pie la.
