Good Lamb Shepards Pie

Desperately searching for a place that makes Shepards Pie with lamb (not beef). Please let me know if the dish is served with crispy-mashed on top.

  1. Shepherd's pie is always with lamb, if it is beef it is Cottage pie. You are correct about the crispy mashed on top, I usually sprinkle a little grated parmesan on top before baking to give it a nice finish.

    1. Yes, yes, yes!!! I love the lamb version also and am so fortunate to have a great pub that does it splendidly. I am not sure if you are willing to come to Houston, but the Red Lion Pub does not only the best sheperds pie with lamb, but they also do the best curries, fish and chips, and onion bajis this side of the world. Very good!
