  • I love shepherd’s pie but with only myself and my son I’ve stopped doing a lot of cooking. I’m going to have to get the apron out and make this recipe. I’m sure it will be just as delicious reheated so he’ll be able to take some to work with him too. Thanks for sharing this recipe.


  • We often have shepherds pie but have never thought to have it with pulled pork.
    I will save this recipe so we can give it a try next time


  • We love shepherds pie and I’ve only ever made it with beef mince. I’ve never considered pulled pork. I know my family will not let me mess with the original!


  • This sounds delicious and heart-warming, a bonus is the kids would probably love it too.


  • This recipe looks much easier than the one being shown on TV lately. Thanks so much for sharing.

  • Never had pulled pork shepherd’s pie. I imagine the fam would like it.


  • Never thought to make a pulled pork pie. Pulled prk is yum on baked potatoes, so can’t see why it couldn’t work with the mash.


  • Pulled meat is a great idea- I’d love to try with lamb.
