Stargazy Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd pie is another British classic and usually requires mince lamb. Our twist: we use a slowly cooked lamb shank, and leave an appealing bone sticking out of the dish when served.
The name ‘Stargazy’ is inspired from the British dish where pilchard’s heads are sticking out from the pastry. View the full recipe here.
