KANSAS CITY, MO — St. Patrick’s Day is this weekend, and Yard House is celebrating by hosting a five-week celebration with Irish-inspired dishes, cocktails, and of course beer. General Manager Kristen Dasilva joins us to discuss what guests can experience during the celebrating, and with a delicious recipe for Shepherd’s Pie.


· 2 tablespoons olive oil
· 1 tablespoon minced garlic
· 1 large onion, diced
· 1 pound ground beef
· 1 tablespoon each dried sage, thyme and parsley
· Salt and pepper, to taste
· 2 stalks celery, diced
· 2 medium carrots, diced
· ½ cup frozen peas, thawed
· 1 medium Yukon gold potato, diced
· 1 tablespoon beef stock
· 1 tablespoon flour
· 1 can dark beer
· 1 package frozen empanada wrappers, thawed
· Egg wash
· Mashed potatoes
· Brown gravy


Heat olive oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion and sauté until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add beef and spices and cook until beef is brown and cooked through. Add celery, carrots, peas and potato. Cook until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in beef stock and flour and cook for 1 minute. Deglaze the pan with a splash of dark beer, scraping brown bits off the bottom of the pan. When liquid has almost evaporated, add the rest of the can of beer, bringing to a boil. Let cook until liquid is reduced by half and sauce is thickened.

Preheat oven to 400*F. To fill empanada dough rounds, lay flat on baking surface. Scoop about 2 tablespoons of filling onto the center of each dough round. Moisten the edges of the dough with water and bring edges up to meet around the filling, pressing to seal. Use a fork to crimp the edges. Arrange on parchment-lined baking sheet, brushing lightly with egg wash. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown.

Serve with mashed potatoes and gravy.
