Shepherd's Pie with Baked beans

    55 minutes

    This is my version of this hearty English meal, made with baked beans and tomatoes. It's a meal on its own or can be stretched further by serving with vegetables or salad.

    Serves: 4 

    • 500g lamb (or beef) mince
    • 1 tin baked beans
    • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
    • 1 beef stock cube
    • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    • 4-5 large potatoes
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1/4 cup milk
    • 3 tablespoons of Gravox or gravy mix
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 12 button mushrooms, sliced

    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Peel and chop the potatoes, and place into a pot to boil with a pinch of salt.
    2. Brown the mince in a pan, adding the Worcestershire sauce and the stock cube. Add the mushrooms and finely chopped onion and stir through and cook for 5-7 minutes
    3. Place the cooked mince mixture in the bottom of a large casserole dish, and add the baked beans and tomatoes. Turn on oven oven to 200 degrees C and leave the casserole to warm through while the potatoes finish cooking.
    4. Once your potatoes are finished, drain and mash them, adding the butter and milk to make a creamy mix. Remove the casserole dish from the oven and sprinkle the mince mix with the gravy mix stirring until the mixture becomes thick.
    5. Very carefully dollop the potato in blobs over the top of the thickened mix and gently spread it out to make a pie top, rake it over with a fork and place back in the oven.
    6. Cook for 10 minutes or until the topping is golden and crispy.

    Oh so good! Didn't look like it would be but it was amazing! I would have started the meat before the potatoes though as it took longer. I also used beef since I had it on hand, corn instead of carrots, added a little extra worcestershire sauce and used the IKEA meatball gravy mix. The whole family was quiet while gobbling it down. The 2 yr old came back after dinner to clean her plate and the picky 5 yr old asked for more!  -  27 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Something else. Add some cheese to your mash and place some more grated cheese to the top, always popular with the kids.  -  23 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
