Prep the ingredients

Sweat the onions, carrots, swede, thyme, garlic and minced meats in the rapeseed oil until the vegetables are soft and the meats are light brown. Make sure to season (using about 3g of the salt).

Add the stock

Add the beef stock, as well as the stout and sugar and cook for about 35 minutes until the liquids have reduced to leave a thick consistency.

Set aside the mince

Place the mince in an oven ready baking dish and set aside in the fridge to cool while you prepare the mash.

Prepare the mash

Boil the potatoes with a little salt to make the mash.

 

Once soft, mash the potatoes together with the cream, butter and remaining salt.

Prepare the pie

Pipe (or spread) the mash over the top of the cooled mince and bake in the oven at 180°C for 35 minutes.
