Method

Place prepared potatoes into a large pan. Cover with just enough boiling water to cover and fast simmer with the lid on for about 10 – 15 minutes until soft.

Meanwhile place the beef, onion, garlic and carrot in a cold pan. Place on the heat, ‘dry fry’ in its own juices and brown for about 4-5 minutes. Add the tomatoes herbs and ketchup (add a splash of beef stock if a little too thick). Season and bring to the boil and then simmer for 10-15 minutes with the lid on the pan.

Preheat the grill.

Drain the potatoes; add a splash of milk and mash. Place the mince mixture into a shallow dish, top with a thin layer of mash and dot with a little margarine. Place under preheated grill until crisp and golden, about 5- 10 minutes.

Serve with seasonal green vegetables or salad leaves.
