    Smurfette,

    You miss the point. Braders is talking about Boscoe's Shephard's Pie. Had you been privileged to eat one of his creations you would understand we're talking culinary masterpieces here!

    Boscoes Cottage Pie

    Please note all measurements are approximate

    2 large onions
    100 grams Mushrooms
    500 grams / 1 lb of beef mince
    1 tablespoon of flour
    1 tablespoon of tomato sauce (ketchup)
    1 beef oxo (or magi)
    1 tablespoon of Worcester sauce (Lee & Perins)
    1 tablespoon mixed dried herbs (parsley, basil, marjoram, chives that sort of thing)
    1 beef stock cube
    4 large potatoes
    butter
    double cream (a good glug)
    salt and pepper

    Peel and chop the onion finely. Heat some oil in a large frypan or saucepan, add the onion and cook until the onion and after 2 mins the sliced mushrooms cook until the onion is clear or translucent then add flour and cook for a couple of minutes more. Take the onion/mushroom mixture out and put the minced beef in the pan and sauté using a wooden spoon break up the mince so it is nice and fine crumble over the beef stock cube. When the mince is browned strain off some of the fat that will be in the pan and add the tomato sauce, Worcester sauce, herbs and the onion/mushroom mix. Stir thoroughly to combine. If you like it with a lot of gravy you can add some water now, about 100ml will do – I don’t. Reduce the heat and cover, simmering for 10 to 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. The mixture should be quite thick.

    Peel the potatoes, chop into quarters and place in a medium saucepan with cold water just covering the potatoes. Add a little salt to the water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. When the potatoes are cooked, drain and place back on the heat for a few seconds to let any extra water evaporate. Mash the potatoes with butter and cream until the potato is very creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    Preheat the oven to 200- 220°C. Spoon the mince mixture into a pie dish, then spoon the mashed potato over the mince making a lot of peaks (these will ‘catch’ and burn slightly) I also often fleck some butter on top of the potato. Bake until the potato is golden and the pie bubbling up around the edges.

    Invite Boscoe around to test efforts

    I was going to flame you then for saying that shepards' pie was made with beef, but I see you had that eventuality covered and, erm, catered for!!;-)

    Would that be based on the same approximations as when pouring yourself a drink?

    Sometimes he just forgoes the beef altogether and just serves up the wine !

    I bought all my ingredients yesterday evening and will give the recipe a run on Saturday. Thanks for chiming in about the wine, Boscoe, I had considered that myself but didn't want to piddle with the recipe. Exactly how much wine is appropriate? Like you, I don't want too much gravy.
