Ingredients

  • 750g cross-cut blade Quality Mark steak or other casserole cut
  • 1 leek, trimmed
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 560g can Wattie’s Just Add Country French Mince
  • 12-16 mushrooms
  • 1 cup minted baby peas
  • About 12 slices French bread
  • Butter for spreading
  • ½ cup grated cheese

Method

Cut the beef into 3cm pieces. Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan and brown the meat over a high heat. Transfer to a large casserole.

Cut the leek into long finger-sized pieces and add to the casserole with the carrots, mince sauce and mushrooms. Cover and bake at 160°C for 1¼ hours or until the meat is tender. Stir the peas through. Spread the French bread slices with butter and place in an overlapping layer on top, around the outside, to make an edge.

Sprinkle the cheese over the bread slices. Fan grill for about 8-10 minutes until the bread slices are golden. Serve with mashed potato.
