Classic Cottage Pie

Dinner (157)      Family (72)      Potatoes (6)      Pie (4)     
My mother's cottage pie is an absolute classic. Simple, delicious, and uncomplicated, it's type of the food I love. My mother's cottage pie was a regular family meal enjoyed during my childhood, and it always put a smile on my face.



Home made mashed potato and well seasoned minced beef was all my sisters and I needed to keep us happy and full. I've recreated a much-loved dish for my niece, nephew, and sisters, and I can honestly say, I can't wait for them to tuck in.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients
750g minced beef
2 onions
6 large/8 medium sized potatoes
2 Tblsp lea & perrins
ketchup
parsley
mixed herbs
Tsp salt
Tsp black pepper
Mug of beef stock (preferably)
Tbslp butter

Method
Peel the potatoes and place in a saucepan of water which covers the potatoes completely. Set to a simmer.



Finely slice and sweat the onions for 5 minutes.



Add the meat.



Stir for about 5 minutes (until it becomes brown).



Add all of the herbs and stir.



Add the Worcester sauce and ketchup.



Add the stock, stir, and simmer for a further 30 minutes.



Drain the potatoes and mash with the butter and pepper.



Add the beef to a large pyrex dish.



Top with the mashed potato and place in the oven for 45 minutes.



Remove from the oven.



You should be able to see all of the layers.



Serve.
