Brisket Shepard's Pie

Last time I made brisket, I vacuum sealed and froze most of the point.

Since then, the brisket point has been sitting in the freezer waiting for an opportunity for me to use it in a relatively quick meal.

This past weekend, my wife and kid wanted to go out and watch The Batman, and as it is a long movie, I knew I wouldn't have a whole lot of time in the afternoon to prepare dinner.

I thought a Shepherds (Shepard's) Pie would be something good to make with left-over brisket.

This is something I thought would be great to prepare in the morning and just pop on the Weber Kettle for an hour or so.

So ... Saturday morning, I made some mashed potatoes, and heated up the brisket in a gravy with onion and corn.

I don't really have recipe. I just put in what seemed like appropriate amounts of everything.

The gravy / brisket / corn mixture went into my cast iron Dutch oven. The mashed potatoes went on top.

Then, I let the whole thing sit in the fridge.

When we got home from the movie, I fired up the kettle with the "vortex". 

I also put in a little chunk of Apple wood.

I let the Shepard's Pie cook for around an hour or so at a fairly hot temperature. I let it go until the potatoes started to look golden brown and the mixture was nice and bubbly.

After I pulled the Dutch oven off the kettle, I let it sit for about 15 minutes before we served it.

It was awesome. I've always loved Shepherd's Pie, but the brisket made it even better than I ever remember it being before.

I even had some pie left over for lunches this week. Yummy!

I'm fairly certain I will make this again. It is a great way to use up left-over beef. I even think a pulled pork Shepard's pie would be pretty awesome.
