Crock Pot Shepherd’s Pie

My husband is quite the Anglophile (or Irish-phile, if there is such a thing), he loves fish and chips, puddings, corned beef and cabbage, and Shepherd’s Pie. I know there are a million ways to make nicer Shepherd’s Pies, but I love me a crock pot, and this one is super simple to put together and it still has that nice flavor and consistency.

Crock Pot Shepherd’s Pie

Quick and easy Shepherd's Pie in the crock pot!
Prep Time25 minutes
Cook Time6 hours
Course: Soup
Servings: 6 people


  • Crock Pot


  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 21 oz. Cream of Celery soup
  • 14 oz. canned green beans (drained)
  • 1 bag frozen mixed vegetables
  • 6 cups mashed potatoes Because I'm lazy I use instant, cook according to package instructions
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 6 oz. tomato paste


  • Brown ground beef in skillet, drain off excess fat. I like to cook my ground beef with some seasoning, like steak seasoning or Worcestershire, just to give it some extra flavor.
  • Add cooked ground beef to greased crock pot.
  • Add vegetables, tomato paste and canned soup to pot, mix together.
  • Top with the mashed potatoes, use a spoon to spread potatoes evenly over meat mixture.
  • Sprinkle cheese evenly over the potatoes
  • Let cook 3 hours on high or 6 on low, at the end you can take the lid off the crock pot for 30 minutes or so to reduce moisture around edges


Serve with a crisp garden salad and my sour cream biscuits if desired!  You could also pop each individual serving in the oven for a few minutes to brown on top a bit.
