Step 1:

  • Put the potatoes on to boil in salted water.
  • Step 2:

  • heat a pan that can be used on a hotplate and under the grill.
  • Step 3:

  • cook the meat with the onion, breaking the meat up with a wooden spoon, until the meat has browned.
  • Step 4:

  • add the carrot, peas, tomato puree, stock granules and worcester sauce, stir to mix and add just enough water to keep the mixture in the pan liquid.
  • Step 5:

  • put a lid on the pan and cook for 5 minutes approx.
  • Step 6:

  • sprinkle the flour over the mixture in the pan and stir to combine. Continue to cook for about two minutes, stirring from time to time.

  • when the potatoes are cooked, mash with a little butter or low fat spread, and milk.
  • Step 9:

  • spoon the mashed potato over the meat in the pan.
  • Step 10:
