This is actually Cottage Pie. It’s one of those technical differences between lamb vs. beef.  This by far is my daughters #1 comfort food.  This is almost a food group on it’s own if you think about it.

If you really want to do something extra special try making my version of Worcestershire Sauce to add to this recipe.
