Ingredients

Scale

Meat Mixture

Potato Topping


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Add the chopped potatoes to a stock pot full of salted water and bring to a boil. The water should be about two inches over the top of the potatoes. Boil 20-30 minutes until the potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork.
  3. In a cast iron skillet, warm the ghee.
  4. Add the onion, celery and carrots to the skillet, and cook about 5-7 minutes or until softened.
  5. Add the ground lamb and cook until browned, another 8-10 minutes.
  6. Stir in the tomato paste, coconut aminos, garlic powder, thyme and rosemary for about 2 minutes.
  7. Add the beef broth. Bring to a boil. Immediately reduce heat to a simmer.
  8. Let everything cook down for about 25 minutes. Reduce the volume by about half.
  9. While the meat mixture is cooking down, drain the potatoes and add to a mixing bowl.
  10. Mash the potatoes, and add the egg yolks and ghee.
  11. Add the coconut milk 1/4 cup at a time until you reach the right consistency (thick but spreadable).
  12. Mix in garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  13. With a spatula, spread the mashed potatoes evenly across the skillet fully covering the meat mixture.
  14. With a fork, fluff the top of the potatoes to make peaks.
  15. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the potato peaks turn golden brown.
