Recipe's preparation

    1. Chop onion, carrot and leek on speed 5 for 5 seconds
    2. Add 1 TBS olive oil and cook for 5 minutes on Reverse speed 1
    3. Add lamb and cook for 5 minutes on Reverse speed 1.
    4. Add the flour and cook for 2 minutes on Reverse speed 1. 

    5. Add stock, bay leaf, Worcestershire sauce, rosemary, chia seeds and tomato paste and cook on Reverse speed 1 for 30 minutes.
    6. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
    7. During cooking, preheat oven to 200 degrees fan forced.
    8. Boil at least 1 litre water in kettle and pour into large pot on stove.
    9. Add chopped potatoes and a little salt and place lid on pot and bring to boil.
    10. Remove lid and allow the potatoes to boil until soft - test with fork.
    11. Oil/butter large/8 cup pie dish/baking tray - ceramic is best I find.
    12. Pour pie contents into dish and place in oven or leave on the bench if you have the luxury of space.
    13. Add enough water to cover the blades of the TMX bowl then wash on speed 9 for 1 minute.
    14. Pour water out and add butterfly.
    15. Add boiled, drained potatoes, milk &/or water, salt and butter and mash for 20 seconds on speed 3.
    16. Top pie contents with mashed potato using a fork to create a texture that will crisp nicely. Brush with butter and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until mashed potato is golden brown. Serve immediately. Goes nicely with homemade tomato/barbecue sauce.

Tip

Use any vegies you like up to the equivalent of those listed. You can just make it a complete vegie pie too.

Keep a spatula handy and regularly scrape down sides. Silicone ones are best.

You can use any type of stock in place of Quirky Cooking's.

  • Thanks for the recipe, and thanks heaps to Thermo...

    Thanks for the recipe, and thanks heaps to Thermo users who commented previously.

    I heeded the the advice and kept the water to a minimum to keep it moist, and it's perfect consistency. I used mix of lamb and beef mince, garlic, carrots, zucchini, peas accidentally forgot to mushrooms, which I had - annoyed at myself.

    It was a hit. Next time I may add a touch of,chilli heat to spice it up.

    Thanks again to all contributors.

    Submitted by Dandi37 on 30. June 2017 - 20:44.

    I made this with beef mince and added all the veg left from the week. I found the sauce quite wet so i just cooked it further with the steaming basket on the lid instead of MC. Hubby who isnt typically a fan of this style of thermie meal loved it! Thank you!

  • Yummy! A bit salty but

    Submitted by Hayley25 on 30. August 2016 - 16:17.

    Yummy!

    A bit salty but balanced with the mash. I used half sweet and half white potato for my mash. And i used beef mince. 

    Thankyou for the recipe!

  • This was yummy. Alteration:

    Submitted by Tracycatfish on 13. January 2016 - 20:45.

    This was yummy. Alteration: put mince into basket with sauce ingredients below. Cook for 30 mins/Varoma/speed 4. Mix occasionally. This will keep the mince chunky. I didn't use Chia seeds. I put the mince into taco boats and topped with potato and cheese. I also put a strainer on top to allow some steam to escape but also stop splatter.

    Submitted by meganzig on 8. May 2015 - 16:54.

    This was a fail for me. Way too watery even with reduced stock and was just slop on the plate - upside is at least it tasted ok!

    I think I'll need to give up making these types of dishes in the Thermomix as its just too hard to monitor the consistency.

    Submitted by JSP on 22. September 2014 - 22:04.

    Recipe tasted great and turned out ok but it was too watery. I will definitely make again but reduce the water with the stock.  Good flavour and we have left levers for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for sharing.

    Submitted by vee_dub on 22. August 2014 - 21:26.

    Made this tonight and it was very nice! Everyone enjoyed the flavours.

    I used mince beef but next time, I would chop up my own meat. Mince was just too fine and no texture 

    Slightly less water to the stock as my meat was very watery.

  • I'm so glad some have tried

    Submitted by moomin on 22. August 2014 - 14:32.

    I'm so glad some have tried and liked my first recipe! Yes, 100 degrees! I apologise for the omission. Chia seeds can bulk up a sauce, or you can add more veg, or mix a little cornflour up and mix that in gently. The QC stock adds a lot of flavour but a trick is to use a little vegemite!!

  • This had a great flavour, but

    Submitted by meshelly59 on 21. August 2014 - 19:42.

    This had a great flavour, but mine was too watery. Not sure if I did something wrong? The recipe did not give a temperature for the thermomix so I cooked it at 100. The potatoes were very nice.

    Very Yum! Whole family loved it. I just did mince beef and left out the rosemary. Cooked at 100 deg as there is no temperature added in recipe. I added llots of veg. Will be making this again!

    Edited to add: I added mushrooms and left out the chia seeds

    Also noticed that the temperatures were left out. i used varoma to saute the leek/onion and then 100degree setting for everything else.

  • Was about to make this and

    Submitted by Tasty on 22. February 2014 - 15:27.

    Was about to make this and then realised I was missing quite a few ingredients. I did notice however that most of the steps are missing the temperature . . . should it be 100C?
