Shepherd's Pie (AIP, Paleo, Whole30)
 
Ingredients
  • BOTTOM LAYER:
  • 4 thick cut slices bacon
  • 2 cup celery, sliced
  • 2 cups carrots, sliced
  • 2 lbs grass fed ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried savory
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • TOP LAYER:
  • 3 japanese sweet potatoes (weighing about 2.5 lbs total)
  • 2 T ghee or fat of choice
  • ¼ cup additive free coconut milk
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
Instructions
  1. Steam japanese sweet potatoes using your preferred method (I used my Instant Pot steam function for 15-20 minutes).
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  3. Cook bacon over medium high heat and set aside.
  4. Brown ground beef and add in sliced carrots and celery when the meat is halfway browned. Season with 1 teaspoon sea salt, 1 teaspoon dried savory, and ½ teaspoon garlic powder. Cook until beef is browned and vegetables are softened. About 5-10 minutes. Covering if necessary.
  5. Puree steamed sweet potatoes with 2.5 T ghee, ¼ cup coconut milk, and ½ teaspoon sea salt. Whip until fluffy with a handheld mixer.
  6. Spoon ground beef/carrot/celery mixture into a 9x11 inch pan and add bacon (chopping it up into small pieces)
  7. Layer sweet potato mixture on top of the ground beef and bake at 375 for 20 minutes. If you want it slightly browned, broil for 1-2 minutes watching carefully to make sure it doesn't burn.
  8. ENJOY!!!
