  • 2 Lbs Smoked Brisket
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • 1 Tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 8 Potatoes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 Cans Cream Of Mushroom


  • Cut up your leftover smoked brisket into small pieces,  this is one thing I would change about how I made mine is that I cut the brisket into smaller pieces.
  • Startup a pot of water to boil for your potatoes.
  • Peel and cut your potatoes, I used russet potatoes but you can use a different kind if you want.
  • Boil your potatoes until they are ready to be mashed.
  • In a mixer mash your potatoes, and combine with your potatoes the milk and sour cream, add in salt and pepper them as well until they are well mixed and blended.
  • Chop your onion and peppers up into small pieces.
  • Oil your cast iron pan, I used a large skillet to make mine in if you use a smaller skillet you will want to use less meat and potatoes to make this with.
  • In a mixing bowl combine the Cream of Mushroom soup, peppers, onion, and minced garlic together and mix well.
  • Mix in the chopped-up brisket to the mixing bowl with the soup mixture.
  • Spread this mixture into the bottom of the skillet.
  • Spread the mashed potatoes onto the soup mixture in the bottom of the skillet.
  • Start your smoker rolling, I had mine set at a setting of P4 then turned it up to 350 after it was good to go.
  • Allow to smoke in your smoker for about 30 minutes, I did turn my skillet a couple of times while it was smoking.
  • Top with cheese after 30 minutes and then top with cheese.
  • Allow the shepherd's pie to finish smoking until the cheese has fully melted.
  • Remove and serve!
