Savory Skillet Pork Pie



  • 1 lb boneless pork chops, cubed
  • Butter for sauté
  • 3 medium carrots, cubed
  • 1 golden beet, cubed (if golden beets are not available, use an extra couple of carrots or parsnips!)
  • 2 sticks celery, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tomato, cubed
  • 1 apple, cored and cubed
  • Handful of parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • ½ tsp Rosemary
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 15 cracks fresh black pepper

Potato Topping

  • 10 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 8ths
  • ¼ lb butter (more if you like!)
  • ½ c milk or cream (and you may need a splash more)
  • ½ tsp garlic granules
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 15 cracks fresh black pepper
  • Fresh grated Parmesan to garnish

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Prepare the potatoes as noted above and boil them until they are tender, then drain well and pour the cooked potatoes into a large mixing bowl along with the other topping ingredients – except the Parmesan. Use an electric mixer to whip them until they are fluffy and creamy (you can also drop everything (except the Parmesan!) into a stand mixer if you prefer).

Step 2

While the potatoes are cooking melt a bit of butter in a large heavy skillet (cast iron is perfect!) over medium heat and sauté the onions until they are translucent, then add the pork and bring up the heat to medium high and brown the pork for about 5 minutes. When the pork is beginning to brown add all other pie ingredients and sauté gently over medium heat for about 15 minutes, then turn off the heat and set aside.

Step 3

When you begin to whip the potatoes heat the oven to 400°.

When you are finished whipping the potatoes spread them evenly over the top of the pie and sprinkle with a generous amount of fresh grated parmesan then place the skillet onto a baking sheet and pop it into the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until the potatoes are golden brown on top.

Serve piping hot to shallow bowls and enjoy the delightful flavors of this twist on Shepherd’s Pie!
