COTTAGE PIE

MADE WITH TENDER MINCED BEEF & TASTY CARROTS!

TENDER MINCED BEEF & CARROTS WITH CREAMY MASHED SPUDS

Beef is a good source of Vitamin B12. This is an unusual vitamin because so far no animal or plant can make it, instead we have to reply on tiny microorganisms like bacteria and yeast to do the job for us. 

It is vital for lots of things such as normal brain function and energy. 

This is interesting because it shows we need the likes of bacteria and yeast…perhaps more than they need us!

Story

Apparently, the nursery rhyme that goes “four and twenty blackbirds baked in pie” isn’t some jester's 18th century practical joke. It was “Blackbeard” the infamous pirate’s secret code for a recruitment drive. Sixpence was the wage, rye, the whiskey and “baked in a pie” referring to the pirates crew hiding prior to an attack.

Serving Suggestion:

MASHED TURNIP WITH CRISPY BACON: Peel and chop up the turnip and boil in salted water. When nearly cooked, discard most of the water and allow the remaining water to evaporate off. When soft (cooked), mash in a big knob of butter and a splash of cream with an old fashioned potato masher. Stir in crispy fried lardons of bacon, check seasoning and serve. Delicious!

Ingredients:

Potato (40%), Beef Mince (21%), White Onion (12%), Water, Carrot (4%), Butter (Milk), Celery, Cornflour, Milk, Beef Stock [Beef (48%), Natural Flavouring, Salt, Tomato Puree, Molasses, Lemon Juice Concentrate, Onion], Tomato Paste, Salt, Parsley (0.3%), Vegetable Stock [Water, Vegetables (21%) (Onion, Potato, Leek, Celery), Salt, Yeast Extract, Carrot Concentrate, Sugar, Sunflower Oil, Lemon Juice Concentrate], Coarse Black Pepper, White Pepper

SULLY’S COOKING INSTRUCTIONS:

For best results we strongly recommend cooking in the oven:

1. Cut film from top of container.
2. Place in a pre-heated oven at 200c (gas mark 6) for approx. 30 minutes.
3. I would throw some whole baby onions into the oven with this. They are cooked when the inside is mild, soft and luscious. So good!

or if you’re in a hurry you can microwave:

1. Cut film from top of container.
2. Heat for approximately 5 minutes at 800w. Stand for 1 minute.

We do not recommend freezing but if you do, use within one month. defrost fully before cooking.
