Here’s my classic, warming, comforting recipe for a cold January evening.
You will need:
- 800g/ 1kg white potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 450/500g ground lamb mince
- 100g frozen peas
- 1 small onion, diced
- salt and pepper
- 2 stock cubes or 2 tbsp gravy granules
- 1/2 tsp marmite/yeast extract
- 1tsp thyme
- 1tsp rosemary
Making the dish:
- Put some boiling water in a large pan, add the potatoes and boil for 20/30 minutes. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.
- While this is boiling, fry the lamb mince in 1tbsp of cooking oil until it is nicely browned.
- Once cooked, add the onion and peas to the meat. Cool for around 2-3 minutes or until the peas are no longer hard.
- Add some gravy granules/stock cubes. And my secret ingredient (which I add to all gravy dishes), marmite! It adds an extra meaty taste and gives it a good kick. Simmer for 10 minutes.
- Once the potatoes are boiled, mash them with th butter and milk. Put the meat in two dishes and top with the mashed potatoes.
- Pop it in the oven for 20/30 minutes to brown your mash- perfect! Serve with gravy and greens 🙂
