With gravy, vegetables, and mashed potatoes.

The photo is always misleading but especially with this one. I did like the flavor of the potatoes and there was certainly a lot of food there, but VERY little veggies. It was mostly meat and potatoes. The meat was fine. I actually might do this again but I’d make some additional vegetables to serve with it.

Picture looked great… worst thing we ever bought at TJ… Potatoes tasted like glue, meat looked like dog food, tasted like real cheap beef… vegetables??? STAY AWAY from this garbage.. TJ’s needs to relook this item and dump it… usually everything has been great… this is a never agian….

Very bland and yet strange tasting at the same time. The meat is unpleasant. Stay away.

I am apparently an anomaly! My husband and I liked this dish, and I actually recommended it to a friend. I agree that more veggies would definitely improve the dish.

Most horrible pie I’ve ever had. Very bland and only adding ketchup made it passable to eat. TJ how about refunding those who have bought it?

Nasty watery tasteless potato. Beef was good so we’re the veg. Do not buy

No herbs or any sort of crust to the top. Beef was uninteresting and basically pot roast. Vegetables barely exist. Lacked salt. Potatoes so watery they sort of melded into the meat as a white meat slop. Hard to say just how disappointing this was as a Shepard’s pie, and that’s at $5. I usually like Trader Joe’s stuff – their steak and ale pie they had a few months ago was pretty good.

A waste of money for this dish. It is 95% mashed potatoes. I found it difficult to find anything else but the potatoes.

I have never bought anything “food wise” from Trader Joes. Usually, I go in there for their frozen fruit bags because they’re so cheap. The other day, I thought, I’ll buy a bit of their food. This “pie” was just awful. It has no flavor. HOW do you remove ALL flavor from ALL the ingredients? Is there a special machine that deflavorizes all the ingredients?
Just don’t waste your money and NEVER buy this.

I am shocked that Trader Joe’s is selling this product so I don’t think their ‘buyers’ are aware they are being badly ripped off.
I have the same complaints as most others: it is almost nothing but mashed potatoes and looks absolutely nothing like the picture on the box. I will go to their website and be sure they are aware of this sickening nightmare…after I vomit (and i am not kidding it is that bad)

I tried to edit my comment and couldn’t so I am adding this note. I went to the website and contacted them about this. I linked these reviews. IMO the product is so horrible it should be immediately recalled and billed back to the vendor who has been stealing from Trader Joe and its customers for a long time. I also think Trader Joe should be getting automated alerts of products that get this type of review so they can deal with it sooner .

Believe all the awful reviews. Flavored mashed potatoes with a tablespoon of meat and a tablespoon of vegetables. I’m
surprised TJ would want their name on this. Shouldn’t they be sued for putting that picture on this crap?

Trader Joe’s Shephards Pie— Photo Shopped- Image on package— showing a hearty – thick full of delicious Vegetables— — you were thinking you would need a knife to eat this meal—- This is what was really presented—- thin layer of potatoes— on top of basically a tasteless soup — with a few carrot flakes—-half dozen peas— and corn— I saw one green bean the size of a chick pea— absolutely tasteless—you could easily use a straw—( put my knife back in the drawer) — this was easily the worst meal Ever! — Obviously I didn’t eat it— really surprised that Trader Joe’s would put their name on this—

Inedible. Potato glue and strange stringy meat

Don’t buy the Shepherds Pie. Very poor.. flavorless, lack of vegetables, lack of gravy. We’ve made our own with British friends and you wouldn’t know it’s the same dish. Very disappointing.

Crazy unreliable! I’ve had one that was full of delicious roast beef. The bottom of the container was full of packed up dense roast beef. That was ONE time. Another time it actually 0 beef! Which is really nasty! The potato on top is box made 100%. The gravy, veg, and steak make up for it. I like it, when it has a good amount of meat in it. Still, I find each one is different. Most don’t seem to have much steak in them at all. It’s a complete gamble! I have no clue what they are going for or how much meat is meant to be in it.

Apple or cherry by the slice
with a tasty pastry crust is very nice
but not a must
my absolute fave fit for a king
with taters on top of thee I sing
made with lamb
not beef that’s cottage
and personal wish
as the name does imply
is a dainty dish
of homemade shepherd’s pie

Trader Joe’s should be ashamed. All this was was watery mashed potatoes with very little beef or veges. I really question the nutrition label accuracy. Nothing like the picture on the box.

Terrible Beef Shepherds Pie. Runny mashed potatoes- 2 peas- maybe 1 or 2 tiny carrot pieces, no green flakes of what knows what, featured in the picture. I will Never buy this again! Really thought more of Trader Joes label! A real let down !
