In a skillet, on medium heat cook shallots in butter 4-6 minutes followed by ground pork, garlic and pepper and salt to taste.
Once the pork is semi cooked add 1 cup of broth, peas, carrots, 2 Tbsp parsley, 1/2 tsp thyme and cook for a few min.
In a small bowl whisk remaining broth and cornstarch and pour it over the skillet.
Cover with sliced potatoes by overlapping in a spiral pattern.
