    • 2 Lamb neck fillets (cut into small cubes)
    • 1 Onion (diced)
    • 2 tbs of olive oil
    • 2 cloves of Garlic (chopped)
    • 4 Large potatoes (baking potatoe size)
    • 2 Large carrots (diced)
    • 1/2 a 335g stem of broccoli
    • 4 or 5 mushrooms (cubed)
    • 2 tsp dried parsley
    • 1 tsp dried rosemary
    • 4 to 5 tbs lamb or turkey gravy granules
    • Knob of butter and dash of milk (optional)
    • Worcester sauce (optional)


    1. Peel then chop the potatoes into chunks and put them in a sauce pan with enough boiling water to cover. Bring to the boil then cover and simmer for about 10 minutes.
    2. After 10 minutes add the broccoli into the same pan and repeat the process for another 10 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile; Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onions until they start to brown.
    4. Add the garlic and fry for a further 1 minute.
    5. Then add the lamb and seal all the edges.
    6. Add the mushrooms to the pan for 2 minutes and try to coat them in the oil. You may need to add a bit more oil.
    7. Take some of the water from the potatoes/broccoli and cover the lamb mixture (just enough so everything is submerged).
    8. Add the carrots, dried parsley and dried rosemary and give it a good stir. Leave to simmer on a low light.
    9. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 7.
    10. Add the gravy granules to the lamb mixture so that it is thick but not stiff. Then turn the heat off and mix.
    11. Your potatoes and broccoli should now be about ready for draining and mashing.
    12. Pour the lamb mixture into an oven proof dish approximately 30cm x 30cm x 5cm. Level off and leave to cool slightly.
    13. Mash the potato and broccoli mix with a knob of butter and a dash of milk (both optional).
    14. Add the mash to the top of the lamb (just like a shepherds pie) and form peaks all over. Sprinkle some Worcester sauce on top (optional).
    15. Put it in the centre of your preheated oven for about 20 minutes till golden brown.
    16. Serve with fresh green beans, mangetout or asparagus.
