Finely dice the onion and garlic. Wash and cut the florets from the cauliflower. Grate the cheddar cheese block for the topping. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit or 200 degrees Celsius and place the oven rack in the middle.


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and place the cauliflower florets into it, cooking them over medium-high heat until fork-tender. While the cauliflower is cooking, heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and cook the diced onion and minced garlic for a few minutes until soft and fragrant.


Add the ground beef and ground lamb to the skillet, sautéing until the meat is fully browned.


Drain away any excess fat and mix in the Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste.


Stir in the tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, and beef broth to the meat filling, and simmer for another 2-3 minutes until dark in color and thickened.


Toss in the green beans and give the meat filling a stir.


Pour the meat filling into your casserole dish.


Strain the cauliflower florets off the excess water and mash them with a potato masher or blend them in a food processor.


Add the butter, cream cheese, salt, and pepper to the mashed cauliflower, and combine until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust with salt and pepper as necessary!


Top the meat mixture with the mashed cauliflower topping and sprinkle 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese over it.


Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 40 minutes until the cheese has melted and the meat filling is bubbling.


Remove from the oven and allow it to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Cooking Tips

If you're making a bigger batch of shepherd's pie, use big and small aluminum trays for storing it in.


If you find that the beef filling is too watery, you can instantly thicken it by mixing a teaspoon of water with a teaspoon of cornflour or arrowroot powder and stir that into the gravy.
