  • 1. Fry the lamb in a saucepan until sealed, then add the onion and carrots. Continue frying until the onions start to brown. Add the mushrooms and fry for a further 3-4 mins. Add the tomatoes, crumbled stock cube, worcester sauce and salt and pepper. Stir well and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer until tender, about 30 mins.
  • 2. Meanwhile, put the potatoes into a saucepan of cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer until tender. Drain and mash with a little margarine and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • 3. When the meat mixture is cooked, thicken the liquid if necessary. Place the mixture in a casserole dish and pile and spread the mashed potato on top. Either brown under a grill or bake in a preated oven until golden brown.

    • Cooking this for the boys tonight. They normally only eat Cottage Pie so it is a bit of an experiment. I am encouraged by your comments Jail Bird, lets hope it really is a hit. Fingers crossed!
