Also known as Shepherd’s Pie, the cottage pie is a meat pie with a crust made from mashed potato. Comfort food for both young and old, the perfect cottage pie can be achieved by following this easy step-by-step recipe.
- 6 medium potatoes – peeled (and milk and butter for mash)
- 500g lean mince
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 tomatoes, chopped
- 1 cup brown mushrooms, sliced
- 1 beef stock cube
- ¼ cup water
- 1 tbsp sunflower oil for frying
- 1 tbsp garlic and lemon mix
- 3-4 tbsp tomato paste
- ½ tsp thyme
- ½ tsp oregano
- ½ tsp rosemary
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ cup grated cheese to sprinkle on top of mash
- Peel the potatoes, slice in half and boil until soft.
- Fry the onion in the cooking oil until soft.
- Add the mince, garlic & lemon mix, stock cube and water to the onions.
- Once the mince is sealed and has a nice brown colour to it, add the mushrooms, tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, rosemary, thyme and oregano.
- Mix together well.
- Allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes.
- Once everything is cooked, add the mixture to a round casserole dish.
- Mash the potatoes, add some milk and butter to create a soft even consistency (it should not be runny).
- Now spread the mash potato evenly over the mince mixture and then sprinkle with cheese (this is optional but tastes delicious!).
- Place the dish under the grill for a few minutes and allow cheese to melt and turn golden brown and slightly.
When does the two tomotoes go in.
2chopped tomatoes? When do they go in?
Oops, I left that out! This would be step number 4 when you add the tomato paste, mushrooms and spices! 🙂
