1Oxo Beef Stock Cube
1Large or 2 Medium Carrotspeeled and chopped into small dice
300-400mlof beef gravymade with bisto powder OR 300-400ml of beef stock
Salt and Pepper
1tbspWorcestershire Sauce Optional
Place a large saucepan over a high heat and brown the mince, breaking it up with a fork to separate it. Crumble in the Oxo cube, add the onions and continue to cook on a high heat until the mince is nice and browned.
Add the diced carrots, the gravy or beef stock and the Worcestershire sauce, if using. Turn the heat to low-medium, pop on a lid and cook for at least an hour. Season to taste. That's all there is to it!
Cook your tatties, mash them with lots of butter and season with salt and pepper.
I prefer to use Bisto gravy powder, but you can use any beef stock you like.
The Oxo cube helps make the gravy a little richer, but you don't have to add it.
