Shepherd's Pie

This is my kids' favorite Sunday dish. Very easy to do and very addicting too (mst be the carbs hehehe)

1 lb ground or diced lamb/beef
1 large onion, chopped
5-6 mushrooms, sliced (optional)
2 carrots, diced
25 gm plain flour - 25 g
2 cups lamb or beef stock
1 tbsp tomato purée
6-8 potatoes
25 gm butter
4 tbsp milk
1 cup any type of cheese, crumbled


1. Heat oven to 200C / 400F
2. Fry (with little oil or no oil) the lamb/beef with the onion, mushrooms and carrots for 8-10 minutes.
3. Add the flour and cook, stirring for 1 minute. Slowly add in the stock and tomato puree. Cook, stirring, until the mixture thickens and boils.
4. Cover and simmer for about 25 minutes.
5. Put a little butter/oil onto a glass casserole (or baking tin) and pour the lamb/beef into the casserole.

Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in boiling water until tender. Drain and mash with the butter and milk and mix well. Put onto the mince mixture and sprinkle over the cheese
6. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Serve hot.

This recipe is actually for Cottage Pie. Shepherd's pie is reserved for a dish made with lamb, since shepherds do not herd cows, but they do herd sheep.
