• salt and pepper and low fat spread to taste

Serves 4


  1. Put the potatoes in a large pan, cover with cold water and put on heat to boil.
  2. Meanwhile add the oil to a heavy based pan (cast iron is great for this wholesome eat),
  3. Add carrot, onion and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently so it doesn’t colour.
  4. Add the mince and cook till completely browned, then continue frying for a further 5 mins.
  5. Crumble one beef stock cube over the meat and add 1 pint of water (or alternatively use pre-made beef stock).
  6. Leave the pan slightly covered and simmer for 35 -45 mins. after which time you may season to your taste.
  7. Drain the potatoes and roughly mash with a little low fat spread to taste.
  8. Serve the mince with the hot potatoes.
