Solar Short Rib Shepherd's Pie

My computer is going into the shop today for some repairs so this is actually the before picture. The shepherd's pie is currently in the Sun Oven. I don't anticipate any problems. It's another warm, sunny day; perfect for solar cooking.

I usually improvise when making Shepherd's Pie. For today's version I used some left over short rib meat that I had in the freezer. I also usually sautee whatever mixture of vegetables I have on hand. Today I used onions, leeks, carrots, parsnip, and frozen peas. For some additional flavor I add about half a packet of brown gravy mix to the meat and vegetable filling.

I don't know how long my computer is going to be held hostage by the people at Apple. It may be a few days until my next blog update.

  1. Stay near your phone and wait for the ransom call on the computer. I hope it's not as long as my sister's (almost 2-1/2 weeks!). Shepherd's Pie looks good. Guess you'll have to go back to the paper and pen for a while.
