    Surely water from steamed broccoli and carrots etc. is more nutritious.

    That must be rarer than hen's teeth in Stoke, though.
    Indeed, any vegetable cooking water along with a stock cube should be the norm in gravy making.

    No to beans, but yes to mushy peas, an extra gravy boat and an ice cold Leo. Best consumed with a side of self loathing in Pattaya.

    Shepherds Saturday. Somethng for the weekend Sir? Yes please, probably 3 or 4 days eating for me.

    Get the minced lamb browned.



    add the chopped onion, some minced garlic, fresh thyme, and dried rosemary, and a few splashes of Worcester sauce.



    Stir in some tomato puree, then some flour.



    Gradually add some stock, Lamb in this case, stir until everything thickens.



    Add the chopped carrots and defrosted garden peas. Added a glass of red wine just to finish it off.



    Potato cooked, mashed instead of pureed, with only butter, a raw egg, and some grated Parmesan added. Meat mix into a dish with the potato spread on top, finished with grated Cheddar. Ready for the oven.



    The end result.

    ^^^Awesome work behind the apron from PAG yet again!!

    You can smell that bewt just from the photos.

    I scored a cottage pie this evening at Miss Lusty Luzon's gaff.

    It was a humble supermarket one but any Cottage Pie is top nosh in my books.

    I had actually stopped for a maccas just before arriving so I did well to knock off half of it at the first sitting with a bit of help.

    I sneaked back to the kitchen and finished it for supper after she fell asleep and then found this mysterious tipple in the fridge that is even more luminous than Mendip's pond.

    I thought it was some kind of Creme de Menthe but it turned out to be Melon flavoured liqueur and the perfect nightcap on a very early Big Gay Sunday morning

    The anticipation builds as tonight's Cottage pie simmers on a medium heat in the oven.

    Minced Aberdeen Angus Ribeye beef gentle sauteed in olive oil until brown then add the tomato puree,onions, carrots, pepper all mixed and stirred with love and care..

    Pour and spread into the puree dish.
    Then using the water from the kilo of potatoes, make a gravy and pour on top.
    About half a pint, don't want it bubbling up and sporting through the mash topping.

    Use a fork to flatten the milky mash down making grooves to ensure crispyness.

    As for desert, how about some festive quality street for 3.99 a plastic box of 750grams.
    My quality street metal box on the left from 30 odd years ago is 1240grams but packs a different punch..

    Nice effort Chit, however.

    Tinned peas, who apart from the French use tinned peas. The pie is under-carrotted. Interesting Beetroot. All of which leads me to conclude you are in fact colourblind.

    No mention in the text of how he was going to fork that up. But the pictures made it clear.

    Don't bother google Liam we ate the last named one (depsite poaching it was not hunted just roadklll) near Lud's Chapel, the fulcrum of Sir Gawan and Engish Literaature, many moons ago with a rabbit recipe from the Basque chef oddly name Chiko at the 3 Horse Shoes gourmet bistro near a leek.

    Mais revinir a nosmoutons mon costeau
    Of course enough of all this cottaging real pastors, and gourmets who'll wait hours from the tasty morsel,where teh aroma is always the forepplay over a Pineau , a Riqui Qui, or my tiple a Suze Cassis ,they dine on "Hachis Parmentier" or Shepherd's Pie anyways.Usually with haricots verte , petite pois , carrot batons.

    So there and none of this gripe water .If you want real sauce like those culinary khvnts the Frogs , eschew all stock cubes igKNORR all artificial and stick with juice from the beef, Madeira/Port or drinking quality full bodied red wine ( in sub $40 can get perfectly accpetable Borgeuil, Lower Rhone vally cheapis like excellent Gigondas, La Ribera de Navarra, Rioja, even on promotion Ribeira del Duoro unlikley fnd any good ones at this price point , a cheeky Argie Malbec or a lower Barolo avoid Ozzie swill at costs , if you wont drink it please don't cook with it, as I often explain to mrs coked cock or chocolate bals lpass the same orifaces , some fresh cracked sea sat black or green peppercorns and perhaps some cornflour TD brains or fresh placenta for thickening.
