My cooking trials! pt.4


Shepherds PieCottage Pie

So…this weeks menu is one of my favourites from good old ENGLAND!

1. Gently cook minced beef


2. Place meat in dish and spread mashed potatoes & grated cheese


3. Place under the grill for 5 mins


4.Serve with Veg (my favourites broccoli&carrots)


Ingredients ::

– 2 tbsp olive oil

– Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

– 500g minced beef

– 1 large onion, finely grated

– 4 cloves garlic

– 1-2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

– 1 tbsp tomato puree

– 300ml chicken stock

– 500g potatoes, boil and mash

– 50g butter

– 1/2 cup milk

– Cheddar Cheese

– A sprinkle of Parmesan

– Olive oil

Approx 45mins (serves 4) That mean’s there was plenty for my man to tuck into.


I have to confess, I’m really starting to enjoy cooking now…especially as I don’t really get that much time during the week! Soon you won’t be able to get me out of the Kitchen. Even though I wanted to cook Jerk Chicken this week (I couldn’t find the spice! Probably only available at import shops #note to self) It still went down really well. I think I’m getting confident because I’m creating these dishes from scratch without the aid of a cook book (Ooops, no doubt I spoke too soon!)
