One of my favourites here, so here goes
Some low calorie spray
- 1¼kg beef mince
- 2 onions , finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 tbsp tomato purée
- 4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
For the mash
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large saucepan and fry the mince until browned – you may need to do this in batches. Set aside as it browns. Put the rest of the oil into the pan, add the vegetables and cook on a gentle heat until soft, about 20 mins. Add the garlic, increase the heat and cook for a few mins, then return the beef to the pan and boil to reduce it slightly before adding the stock, Worcestershire sauce and herbs. Bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for 45 mins. By this time the gravy should be thick and coating the meat. Check after about 30 mins – if a lot of liquid remains, increase the heat slightly to reduce the gravy a little. Season well, then discard the bay leaves and thyme stalks.
Meanwhile, make the mash. In a large saucepan, cover the potatoes in salted cold water, bring to the boil and simmer until tender. Drain well, then allow to steam-dry for a few mins. Mash well with the milk and then season with some salt and pepper.
Spoon meat into 2 ovenproof dishes. Pipe or spoon on the mash to cover. If eating straight away, heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7 and cook for 25-30 mins, or until the topping is golden
Then enjoy, I know some people like to use some cheese fir topping but I was trying to watch the calories. Try it out and let me know what you think
