Preparation Time: 35 mins Cooking Time: 80 mins Serving: 4/6
Ingredients:
  • 1 kg beef mince
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 3 celery sticks, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • large glass red wine (optional)
  • 850ml beef stock
  • 4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
For the mash
  • 1.8kg potatoes, chopped
  • 225ml milk
  • 25g butter
  • 200g strong cheddar, grated
  • freshly grated nutmeg
Instructions:
  1. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large saucepan & fry 1kg beef mince until browned.
  2. Put the other 2 tbsp olive oil into the pan, add 2 finely chopped onions, 3 chopped carrots & 3 chopped celery sticks (Option use Frozen Mixed Vegetables) & cook on a gentle heat until soft, about 20 mins.
  3. Add 2 finely chopped garlic cloves, 3 tbsp plain flour and 1 tbsp tomato purée, increase the heat & cook for a few mins, then return the beef to the pan.
  4. Pour over a large glass of red wine, if using, & boil to reduce it slightly before adding the 850ml beef stock, 4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce.
  5. Bring to a simmer & cook, uncovered, for 45 mins. By this time the gravy should be thick & coating the meat. Check after about 30 mins.
  6. Meanwhile, make the mash. In a large saucepan, cover the 1.8kg potatoes which you've peeled & chopped, in salted cold water, bring to the boil and simmer until tender.
  7. Drain well, then allow to steam-dry for a few mins. Mash well with the 225ml milk, 25g butter, & three-quarters of the 200g strong cheddar cheese, then season with freshly grated nutmeg & some salt & pepper.
  8. Spoon the meat into 2 ovenproof dishes. Pipe or spoon on the mash to cover. Sprinkle on the remaining cheese.
  9. To cook heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7 and cook for 25-30 mins, or until the topping is golden.
