Quantities are approximate only, I usually just throw in a bit of this and a swig of something 🙂 so no need to be too specific. I also sometimes add mushrooms to this which is nice.
500 g mince beef
2 med onions, sliced
1 cup of frozen peas or green beans
1 tsp worcester sauce
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
1 tsp dried parsley
1 1/2 tsp salt and some black pepper
500 grams (1 pound) potatoes
300 grams orange kumara (or pumpkin is nice)
50 g (2 oz) butter
Put the potatoes and kumara on to cook together in salted water. Preheat the oven to 350 deg.
Brown mince in electric frying pan, add onions, carrots, sauces, and seasoning and simmer 5 minutes like this, taking care not to scorch .
Add enough water to keep it simmering away for half an hour , add frozen peas and continue cooking 10 minutes.
Thicken with flour or whatever thickening agent you prefer (have used gravy powder in past).
Pour into oven dish.
Drain potatoes and sweet potato (or pumpkin) and mash with butter and a little milk till a good spreadable consistency. Spread over mince and top with grated cheese.
Cook for around 20 minutes till golden.
