Method
 
  • WHAT YOU NEED:
  • 1 1/2 lb ground topside beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped up
  • 2 lbs potatoes (5 large)
  • 1 medium carrot, diced
  • 1/2 cup green peas
  • 1/2 cup canned champignons, sliced or quartered
  • 1/4 C milk
  • 1/2 C water
  • 3 Tbs butter
  • 3 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 5 black pepper corns
  • 2 cloves
  • Salt, pepper
  • 1 tsp dark soy sauce
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Making the Mashed Potato:
Peel and quarter the potatoes.
Boil in water for about 20 - 25 minutes, until you are able to poke through the potato easily with a fork.
Remove from water and allow potatoes to cool.
Mash potatoes in a large bowl with a potato masher or a fork.
Add the milk and butter in gradually.
Blend in until the mash becomes a smooth consistency.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

Making the Meat Filling:
Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan.
Saute the clove and black pepper corns for a few minutes.
Next, add the onions and carrots.
Saute till the onions and carrots are soft.
Add the ground beef.
Stir fry till beef turns light brown.
Add the dark soy sauce for color.
Add the green peas and champignons.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Add water and allow to simmer for about 10 mins.
Add more water if needed so that there is some gravy and the beef does not dry out.

Making the Pie:
Transfer the meat filling to a baking dish and level it out so that the filling covers the entire base of the dish.
Next, add the mash on top of the meat filling and spread it out with the back of a spoon (do not press the mash down into the filling otherwise too much gravy will seep into the mash).
Use a fork to rough up the surface of the mash. (You can even carve your initial on the surface of the mash to "personalize" your dish).
Baste the mash with a little butter and sprinkle the bread crumbs on top.
Bake in oven on max heat for about 15 mins or until the potato crust turns golden brown and slightly crispy.
