Serves: 3
Comfort food from my Mum
  • 250g beef mince
  • 450g potato, peeled and cut into large chunks - about 1.5 inches
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 2 Oxo cubes (beef stock cubes that make about 500ml)
  • A sauce you like eg HP, soy, tomato
  1. Pop the mince and carrots in a medium sized pot.
  2. Cover the mince and carrots with water and add the salt
  3. Cook on the stove for at least 40 minutes on a medium heat
  4. After the 40 minutes is up, turn of the heat and let the mince and carrots go cold and remove any fat that comes to the top of the pot.
  5. Add the potatoes and oxo cubes to the pot and bring to the boil.
  6. Turn down so the pot is simmering and cook for 25 minutes until the potatoes are done.
  7. Check the potatoes are cooked by spearing one with a fork. The fork should go in fairly easily.
  8. Serve in a bowl and add desired sauce. I mash mine up at this stage.
