2. Brown the Meat

While the potatoes are cooking, brown the meat. Shepherd’s pie was originally created as a way of using whatever you had in the kitchen, so use whatever meat you have on hand or that suits your taste. Heat a large skillet and add 1 1/2 pounds of meat. Stir often until all the meat has a brown color and is no longer pink inside. If there is any grease in the skillet, drain it off and return it to the stove.
