  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 onions, peeled and chopped
  • 450g minced beef
  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • 450ml beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  • Sea Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 900g potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 25g butter
  • About 4 tablespoons milk


  1. Heat the oven to 170°C/Fan 150°C/gas mark 3 ½
  2. Heat the oil in a casserole dish and fry the onions over a low heat for 5 minutes. Increase the heat to medium, add the beef and cook until it just browns.
  3. Stir in the flour, stock, Worcestershire sauce and tomato puree. Bring the mixture to the boil and season, then cover with a lid, transfer to the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain them and return them to the pan. Mash the potatoes with butter and a splash of milk but don't overdo it - sloppy mash is unforgivable.
  5. Remove the casserole from the oven, then increase the oven temperature to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas mark 7.
  6. Spoon the beef mixture into a medium pie dish and spread the mashed potato over the top.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes until the potato starts to brown. (If you like, add a sprinkling of grated cheese just before you're due to take it out of the oven and return the dish to the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbling)
  8. Serve immediately.
