Fleming Family Beef Shepherd's Pie

Fleming Family Beef Shepherd's Pie

For the recent Columbus IN Keto Potluck Picnic, I used sponsor Fleming Family Beef’s ground Charolais to make a Shepherd’s Pie. It was a hit! People loved it! In fact, the Low Carb Revolution Frozen Meals version sold out the next day, to people who attended the event.

To make it keto, I layered beef mixed with peppers, mushroom, onions, and green beans with mashed cauliflower and cheddar. I baked the casserole and served it to the crowd of people. Not a bite was left.

Make this when you need a hearty dinner. It is stick to your ribs good. I suggest serving it with a fresh garden salad dressed with vinaigrette, because it will provide a nice contrast in texture and flavor.
