  • 1 Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the onions and celery and cook gently for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and cook gently for 30 seconds.
  • 2 Add the minced beef and cook for 8-12 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally until the mince is thoroughly browned. Stir in the flour and tomato puree and then add the Worcestershire sauce.
  • 3 Add the Knorr Beef Stock, bay leaf and fresh thyme. Bring to the boil stirring continuously. Add the carrots and reduce the heat, cover with a lid and leave on a very gentle simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are tender.
  • 4 Meanwhile, for the mash, place the potatoes into cold water. Bring to the boil then reduce to a gently simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Drain and return the potatoes to the pan. Add the milk, Flora Buttery, and the nutmeg and then mash together thoroughly.
  • 5 Place the mince and vegetables into a warmed ovenproof dish and remove the bay leaf and thyme sprigs. Top evenly with mashed potato and sprinkle top with the Cheddar cheese.
  • 6 Place under a hot grill or in hot oven until the cheese has melted and it is golden and bubbling.
