How to make a tasty Shepherd's Pie

  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan set over a medium heat until hot.
  • Add the onion, carrot, celery, and a pinch of salt, sweating for 7 - 8 minutes until softened.
  • Add the beef and brown well all over. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce, chopped tomatoes, and lamb stock.
  • Bring to a simmer, and then reduce the heat slightly, cooking uncovered for 30 - 40 minutes until slightly thickened.
  • Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in a large saucepan of salted, boiling water until tender to the point of a knife; 18 - 22 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (160° fan) | gas 4.
  • Drain and leave to steam off for 2 - 3 minutes before mashing with the creme fraiche.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Season the lamb mince mixture with salt and pepper.
  • Spoon into a baking dish and top with the mashed potato.
  • Run the tines of a fork across the potato to create a few indents.
  • Bake for 35 - 45 minutes until golden and crisp on top.
  • Leave to stand for 5 minutes before serving with the lettuce.
