Y’all. This meal has my favorite things of all time. Sweet potatoes and meat. I’ve been wanting to make a paleo shepherd’s pie for a while now so here is my creation. It’s even got paleo biscuits on top. This takes a little tender love and care to get in the oven, but, it’s about 8-10 servings of deliciousness. You get your carbs (sweet potato mash), protein (chorizo and grassfed beef) and veggies (carrots, bell pepper, cauliflower, onion) all in one dish. Granted, we will steam extra veggies like asparagus to eat on the side too because extra veggies are always a good thing!!!
- 1 lb grassfed beef
- 1 lb chorizo sausage (chicken or pork)
- 6 sweet potatoes, roasted and mashed
- 1 head cauliflower, riced
- 4 carrots, peeled and chopped
- 1 organic red bell pepper, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 6oz can organic tomato paste
- 2 eggs, whisked
- 2 teaspoon cumin
- 2 teaspoon paprika
- Sea salt and pepper to taste
paleo biscuits: *note we changed a few things to the recipe and these are optional and not necessary but still delicious
- coconut flour (1 1/4 c)
- almond flour (1 1/4 c)
- 3 eggs
- 1 tbsp honey
- coconut oil & grassfed butter, 1/4 c total, melted
- baking soda
- sea salt
Method for the pie: (for the biscuits essentially follow link above)
Add 1 tbsp grassfed butter to large skillet. Add your onions and garlic and cook for a few minutes on medium high heat. Then add your chopped carrots and your meat. Cook a few minutes longer. Add all your spices. After meat is browned, add your bell pepper.
Remove from heat and pour contents into large bowl with your riced cauliflower. Mix well and add your can of tomato paste and eggs. Stir until thoroughly combined. Pour into large glass baking (buttered) dish. Then spread your already cooked and mashed sweet potatoes on top, smoothing the layers.
Now make the paleo biscuits (entirely optional). While making the biscuits go ahead and preheat the oven to 350 and stick the pie in the oven. After biscuits are ready, roll out the dough and make littl circles like below (we used a cup) and place on top of the potato layer.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes! Enjoy!!! This was absolutely delicious and I’d say it’s about 8 servings if you eat a lot like Brian and I do. The biscuits also turned out more like cornbread but hey, it’s paleo and clean, so you can’t expect it to be fluffy. I was fine with the result!
Try this recipe out and let me know what you think! It’s a little time consuming but it’s not hard and it was fun to make.
Happy Sunday y’all get some rest and start your week strong!
