Sometimes only a pie will do. Satisfy that craving for something warm and comforting with this rich, cheesy mash-topped number. It's just like Nanna used to make (but better!).
Keep an eye out... Due to recent sourcing challenges, we’ve replaced baby broccoli with green beans, which may be a little different to what’s pictured. Don’t worry, your recipe will be just as delicious!

beef-style stock powder
baby spinach leaves
shredded Cheddar cheese(ContainsMilk)
Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to the boil. Peel and cut the potato into large chunks. Cook the potato in the boiling water until easily pierced with a knife, 10-15 minutes. Drain and return to the saucepan. Add the butter, milk and the salt, then mash until smooth.
While the potato is cooking, finely chop the brown onion. Finely chop the celery (or grate if you prefer). Pick and finely chop 1/2 the rosemary leaves. Finely chop the garlic.
TIP: We've only used 1/2 a bunch of rosemary here as it can be quite an overpowering flavour. Use more or less depending on taste.
In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. Cook the onion and celery, stirring, until softened, 6-7 minutes. Add the rosemary and 2/3 of the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the beef mince and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until just browned, 3-4 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, then add the tomato paste (see ingredients), the water and beef-style stock powder. Stir well to combine. Add the baby spinach leaves and stir through until just wilted, 1-2 minutes.
TIP: Add a dash more water if the mince is dry!
Preheat the grill to medium-high. Transfer the mince filling to a baking dish. Using the back of a spoon, spread the mashed potato over the top. Sprinkle over the shredded Cheddar cheese and grill until the cheese is melted and golden, 5-10 minutes.
While the pie is grilling, wash and dry the frying pan, then return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the green beans, tossing, until tender, 5-6 minutes. Add the remaining garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide the beef and rosemary pie between plates. Serve with the garlicky greens.
