Beef and potatoes, or mince and tatties as they say in Scotland, is a great cold weather dish. Serve with bread to soak up the delicious gravy.



  • 5 medium potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • 500g beef mince
  • beef stock cube
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup garden peas

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

  1. Peel and wash your potatoes (tatties).
  2. Cut the potatoes into cubes. Put in a large pan and cover with cold water then put on heat to boil. Meanwhile add the oil to a heavy based pan, add carrot, onion and garlic and sweat off for 2 minutes, stirring. Add the beef and cook off till completely browned, when browned continue frying for a further 5 minutes.
  3. To almost caramelize the meat (this will intensify the flavour) at this point add some salt and pepper. Crumble stock cube over the meat and add 1/2 cups water and the peas.
  4. Leave the pan slightly covered and simmer for 35-45 minutes. Season to your taste.
