Lamb Shepherd's Pie

Shredding braised lamb shank creates a tender filling. Celery root replaces the usual peas, adding an earthier component to the otherwise traditional mashed-potato-topped dish.

    I made this last year for my husband's birthday. He immediately decided it needed to be part of our annual celebration. It is perfect for any fall meal.

    Perfect for an autumn dinner party. Total do ahead. I browned the shanks in a large skillet instead because I increased the size of the recipe. I mixed the braising liquid the skillet, then braised in a large roasting pan covered tightly with foil. I then pulled away the meat, chilled it, and removed fat. I had made the potatoes ahead and assembled the pie in the gratin dish the afternoon of the party. I warmed the dish, and then added Parmesan cheese and ran it under the broiler. Yum!
