Heat the oil in a pan. Add finely chopped onion and cook for 2 minutes. The meat is cleaned of skins and passed through a meat grinder or crushed at the food processor. Over the hardened onion, add the carrot given on the grater with small holes, add 1-2 tablespoons of soup and let it cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the minced meat, always stir in the pan to break up the meat and cook evenly. Heat the meat together with the other ingredients over high heat, add 1 cup of soup and let it simmer until the soup decreases, but the composition remains juicy. Add the peeled tomatoes and cut into small cubes, as well as the other ingredients. Stir and leave on the fire for another 2-3 minutes. The composition is placed in a heat-resistant dish greased with a little olive oil.

For puree: Peel the potatoes, cut them into quarters and boil them in salted water. Strain the water and pass or proceed like me, using the mixer. Add the butter and mix until the potatoes are crushed and fluffy. Add a little warm milk until you reach the desired consistency. Finally add a pinch of salt, cheddar cheese and egg yolk, and nutmeg only if you like (I put). Mix until the ingredients are incorporated. Put a tablespoon of puree over the meat filling until you finish the puree. Place the dish in the oven heated to 170 degrees for 20 minutes or until the puree is browned on top.

Serve hot.

You're welcome!!

Honey 2.0

I'm not the biggest fan of lamb. I do not turn my back on the dishes based on Easter lamb, Pasah, Easter, Ostern and other such variations. The only really good pieces (from my point of view) are the grilled lamb chops and part of the pulp, cooked whole with garlic and rosemary.

In my family there is always a surplus of steak, drob and other things like that, which young people do not rush to eat and which must always be "transformed" into something more appetizing, the second or third day of Easter .

It all starts with some steak that no one craves (about 1 kg), two small onions and a medium carrot & # 8211 stuff we had around the house. I gave all of this nicely through my grandmother's old but great shredder. I then moved the action to the stove. I put a saucepan of oil on the fire and proceeded to the "shallow saucepan" of the lamb-onion-carrot mixture to which I added some salt, pepper, thyme and a little sweet paprika. After about 5 minutes or when I thought they were relatively sauteed, I added the "secret" ingredients: a generous amount of ketchup, a handful of parsley and a little soy sauce. I stirred and kept everything on the fire for another minute, then turned off the stove and turned on the oven.Before I put it to the wall for the addition of ketchup, I would like to point out that, honestly, I don't really care about anyone's opinion, as long as I like the result and especially if the person in question who is already showing me never tried that combination.

What I didn't tell you, but it's not too late, is that when I got to work, I boiled 1 kg of potatoes, which I mashed, adding a lot of butter, some salt and some pepper.

The assembly was simple - the meat mixture down, the puree up. For color and taste, I grated some cheese on top and then blew the dish in the oven. Medium heat 30 minutes (180 degrees) and high heat another 10 minutes (200 degrees).

After 40 minutes, I took the vessel in which I baked the artwork out of the oven and let it breathe for 5 minutes (this being the maximum of my patience).

After waiting for 300 seconds, I put the spoon in the bowl and then in the mouth, where I discovered a crispy crust, soft puree underneath and delicious lamb. The youth approved me by following my example, and I applauded myself, but only with one hand, because I was too busy with the other to take the food to my mouth.

Spor saved lamb steaks.

Peasant pie with chicken

A pie reminiscent of traditional & quotsheperd & # 39s pie & quot, but made with chicken. It doesn't look like a real pie, but it's tasty and filling.

Prepare the chicken:

Saute the pieces of meat with onion and garlic, in hot oil, over medium heat, for 10 minutes, until golden brown.

Season with salt and pepper and add the pasta sauce, wine, capers and oregano. Reduce heat to low and let cook together for 40 minutes, until sauce thickens. Add the sliced ​​mushrooms and let them simmer for another 5 minutes.

Transfer the meat mixture to a bowl.

Prepare the mashed potatoes:

Boil the potatoes in salted water until soft. Sprinkle with butter, adding a little salt and pepper.

Mix the peas and parsley with the meat sauce. Put everything in a heat-resistant glass bowl. Spread a layer of mashed potatoes on top and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.

Put everything in the oven for 30 minutes.

Shepherds Pie is made with lamb, Cottage Pie is made with beef.

Vegetables, such as peas or sweetcorn, or simply leafy salad such as this pear and walnut salad.

Alright, grocery list time. Here are the basic shepherd & # 8217s pie ingredients that you will need to make this recipe:

  • Ground beef or lamb: It & # 8217s traditional to make shepherd & # 8217s pie with ground lamb (and & # 8220cottage pie & # 8221 with beef), but feel free to use ground beef, turkey or chicken if you prefer in the recipe below. (Or see notes below for how to make vegetarian shepherd & # 8217s pie sans-meat too.)
  • Veggies: Finely-dice lots of onion, carrots, celery, garlic and frozen peas. Plus I also highly recommend adding in some finely-diced mushrooms (baby bella, white button, or portobellos) too.
  • Flour: I used flour to thicken the sauce, but see below for gluten-free substitution options.
  • Beef stock: Or chicken or veggie stock, whatever you have on hand.
  • Dry red wine: I also love the extra depth of flavor this adds. But if you prefer not to cook with wine, just add in an extra 1/2 cup of beef stock instead.
  • Tomato paste: Which will give it that nice tomato-y base.
  • Worcestershire sauce: A must!
  • Herbs: Definitely toss in a few bay leaves. Then I also recommend adding in a few sprigs of fresh Italian herbs, such as rosemary and thyme. (Or if you don't have fresh herbs available, you can add in 1.5 tablespoons of dry Italian seasoning.)
  • Mashed potatoes: This recipe calls for a half batch of my favorite mashed potatoes recipe, made with potatoes, milk, butter and cream cheese.
