A TRUE PUB CLASSIC SHEPHERD’S OR COTTAGE PIE
Heat some vegie oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot and sauté 1 large onion, 1 medium carrot and 1 celery stalk – all finely diced with 2 plump crushed garlic cloves.
Add 750 gm minced lamb or beef and cook, mashing with a potato masher until sealed.
Then add ½ cup white wine, ½ cup canned tomato puree, ½ cup packet beef stock and 3 tbsp tomato chutney and seasonings. Cook, continuing to mash until thick and fragrant and full of flavour (about 45 mins), adding more stock and tomato puree if necessary.
Transfer the mixture to a large ovenproof dish, spread creamy mash over the top and sprinkle generously with grated tasty cheese. Bake until golden and bubbling.
Serve with sautéed green cabbage or green beans.
