Rebecca's Cottage Pie

Cottage pie traditionally uses mince beef and shepherds pie leftover lamb, I would call it Shepherds pie though!

I love one pot meals so hence the addition of the vegetables, again not very traditional. I added Worcestershire Sauce to it, love this stuff maybe I added a wee bit too much as Jasmine wasn't so keen. Can you believe this sauce has been made since 1897 its a British Classic.


  • one pack of lean minced beef
  • one small onion chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • one cup mixed frozen vegetables
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • one cup of gravy
  • 5 medium potatoes to make mashed potatoes
  • 2-3 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce

  1. boil the potatoes until soft mash them and keep to one side
  2. heat some olive oil and saute the onions, garlic and beef for 10 minutes
  3. then add the vegetables, sauce and gravy and simmer for about 20 minutes
  4. add the mashed potato to the top and bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes
Hubby liked it and took it to work and his colleagues approved I think they always sample what I cook!
there is my precious pot again!

So do you call it Shepherds pie or Cottage pie!
