“My 5 Ingredient Shepherd’s Pie Slow Cooker Story”
Let me start out by saying that I love to cook! I wouldn’t have a catering company and a food blog if I didn’t. I like to fill any spare time I can find developing unique recipes and tinkering around in the kitchen. That being said I realize that most people do not share my passion for cooking, and that’s OK. I do, however want people to know that it doesn’t need to take hours to create an amazing dinner.
With the fast paced world we live in today, people don’t have time to sit around and prepare home cooked meals. Between work, kid’s activities, social events, home improvements that seem to be endlessly screaming for attention, often dinner gets the shaft in most households.
I’ve come up with a simple yet incredibly delicious 5 ingredient slow cooker meal that will take less than 3 minutes to prepare. Yes you read that right – less than 3 minutes!
St. Patty’s Day/ Irish Food
St. Patrick’s day is right around the corner and for us lucky ones who live in the Northeastern United States, it’s the non-official kick off of spring. Communities come alive and people wake up from their winter hibernation to catch the local parade or come out to enjoy a pint of green beer. Many people, such as myself, embrace Irish food on this day as well. One of the main staples of Irish cuisine is the very famous, ever so savory, traditional shepherd’s pie.
Shepherd’s Pie’s main ingredient is potatoes. Can you imagine a time without potatoes? Close your eyes and bring yourself back to before the mid 16th century. Anything consumed back then was potato-less. Certainly not the type of world I would want to live in.
Today there are 1000’s of dishes made with this wonderful starch. The Irish, who are renown for cooking with potatoes, have made them a key ingredient in many of their staple dishes. (Mostly because of the availability and economical friendliness of the crop).
Creation of Shepherd’s Pie Slow Cooker
I recently realized that a slow cooker can be a busy parents best friend.
When I developed the Shepherd’s Pie Slow Cooker recipe, I was considering all of the busy parents of the world who seem to be jumping from one thing to the next but still want to put something delicious on the table.
The ingredients can all be purchased at your local grocery store. Even better, the preparation will take you no more than 3 minutes. Enjoy!
