A timeless Irish recipe. To make cottage pie simply replace lamb with beef.


    1 c. onion

    1 2/3 c. beef stock

    1 tsp. tomato puree

    1 tbsp. fresh parsley

    1 tsp. fresh thyme

    1 tsp. fresh parsley

    1 lbs. white or gold potatoes

    2 c. mixed vegetables

    1 lbs. ground lamb

    2 tbsp. butter


Make mashed potatoes from the potatoes: peel and boil potatoes, then mash. Melt butter in frying pan. Add onions, cook for about 5 minutes. Pour in stock (or water) and bring to a boil. Add tomato puree, parsley, thyme and salt and pepper, simmer for 5 minutes. Add meat and remaining vegetables to sauce and bring to boil. Place in a pie dish, cover with mashed potatoes, and score the top. Reheat in a moderate oven (350°F) for about 30 minutes.
