My Tweaked Out Shephards Pie

What I did:
oven 350

I bought a big package of stew beef (because I couldn't find beef tips nor, do I know the difference)
heated olive oil in cast iron skillet with 4 cloves of crushed garlic
browned the beef with a sprinkle of montreal steak seasoning
When all browned there was quite a bit of juice in the pan,
I then added 1 cup of cold water w/ about 1/3 c flour mixed in thoroughly and 2 beef bullions
added approx 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
cook on low just long enough for everything to mix together, beef probably got to med rare
then turn off heat, set aside

the taters-
probably about 7 med potatoes peeled, cut, boiled, and drained
I mixed in 3/4 package cream cheese
dash of milk
sprinkle of salt

I put a light layer of slightly steamed fresh green beans on the beef
topped with the potatoes
sprinkle of paprika
and a sprinkle of cheddar

put the whole skillet in the oven and cooked till bubbly prob 15-20 min

(below is the original recipe if you want to make it that way)


The recipe from the cook book:
2 (17oz) pkgs fully cooked beef tips w/ gravy
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup frozen sweet peas
