Instructions

  1. Salt and pepper the minced meat. Finely chop the onions, dice the carrots and celery. Sear the minced meat in portions and remove from the pan. In the same saucepan, fry the finely chopped vegetables, lightly pepper and salt and season with cinnamon and the herbs. Simmer for about 5 minutes until soft, then add the minced meat and cook in the saucepan for another 5 minutes over medium heat. Now add Worcester sauce, tomato ketchup and tomato paste and mix well. Let it soak in briefly and then start with the wine: add half a glass at a time, stir in and let it boil down. Proceed in this way until all three glasses have been incorporated, then sprinkle in the flour and let it thicken briefly while stirring. Now add the boiling meat broth and let everything simmer over medium heat for 1½ hours (caution! Always stir otherwise it will burn!) Until a thick, creamy consistency is achieved. If that happens too early, add a little broth - for the casserole, however, a thick, mushy consistency must be achieved at the end.
  2. Put the meat-vegetable mixture in a flat baking dish (ideally let it cool down in it) and then start with the mashed potatoes.
  3. For the mashed potatoes, peel, chop and wash the potatoes. Cook in salted water for about 15-20 minutes until they are cooked through. Drain the water. Mash the potatoes lightly, add milk, butter, nutmeg and salt and stir again lightly with a fork. The consistency should be a little firmer than usual, so use milk and butter at a slightly reduced rate.
  4. Spread the puree over the meat and vegetable mixture.
  5. Bake in the oven at 190-200 degrees for about 35-40 minutes - sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese 15 minutes before the end of the cooking time to taste.
  6. It takes me about 6 to 7 hours from start to finish. My shape is the size of LxWxH 34x23x6 and is oval.
  7. Tips:
  8. Instead of ground beef, you can mix ground beef and lamb.
  9. If you can`t get celery, you can also use peas and carrots.
  10. I like to use a whole bottle of red wine.
