Shepherd's Pie

Don't you just love a good shepherd's or potato-top pie?

I do! My boys absolutely love it. My parents were making this for dinner tonight so they invited us over. There are never any complaints when this is on the menu.


500 gms Minced Beef
1 onion finely chopped (I omit this and use onion powder instead)
2 carrots chopped
1 cup peas (or beans)
1 large tomato chopped
1 large tomato sliced
Soy Sauce
1 cup water
Gravy powder
6 potatoes - cooked and mashed
2 cups grated cheese


Cook onion in saucepan until clear. Add mince and brown. Add carrots, peas, chopped tomato, soy sauce and water. Mix together. Bring to boil. Put on lid and simmer until cooked. Thicken with gravy powder.

Pour mince mixture into baking dish. Layer sliced tomato over mixture. Put mashed potato on top and sprinkle cheese over.

Cook in moderate oven (180 C) until top is golden brown.
