Cook's Notes

Each element of this dish can stand on its own. The beef stew is delicious over egg noodles. The vegetable mash is a perfect complement to roast chicken.

    I just ran across this recipe in an old issue I had laying around. I wish I had found it sooner! A simply delicious combination of flavors to give an old favorite new pep. And the two main parts of the dish can stand alone.

    This recipe is delicious! Both the beef stew and the topping are a nice update from the traditional. In fact, I love the mashed root veggies so much that I will make them more often as a side for a main dish. It is a bit time consuming, but definitely doable and totally worth it for the effort!

    Fabulous update to Shepherd's Pie! The root veggie mix is especially nice, as is the orange-spice flavor palate of the stew-- bright and delicious! I made a few variations: I don't own cheese cloth, so instead I ground the cloves, pepper, & cinnamon in my coffee grinder, and removed the orange peel before covering w the roots. Otherwise, followed exactly. Will definitely make this again, and recommend it to others!
