Great grub tonight, Cottage pie/Shepherd’s pie.


250 grams of minced beef/lamb
One small swede
One tin of chopped tomatoes
One small red onion
100 grams of cheddar cheese
Salt, pepper, dried mixed herbs and a large splash of Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce

Chop up a small red onion into small pieces. Add a small knob of butter to a large frying pan. Cook the onions until soft, a few minutes. Add the mince and cook until brown. Add a tin of tomatoes, some dried mixed herbs, some salt and pepper and a large glug of Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce, allow to simmer for about ten minutes. Spoon into a ceramic baking dish. Cover with boiled mashed swede and grated cheddar cheese. Place in an oven at 200 degrees. Cook until the cheese is beginning to brown. Low carb and very filling, serves two.

Wife often cooks this, the kids like the sweeter taste of the swede. She does sometimes add some smashed carrot to it too.

This looks a very nice family meal, and not too expensive.

Thank you
