• 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1 tsp crushed chillies
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 500 g 5% fat beef steak mince
  • 100 ml beef stock
  • 320 g frozen peas
  • 500 g jar of onion and garlic pasta sauce
  • 800 g sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes (approximately 4 potatoes)


  1. 1

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the onion, carrots, crushed chillies and garam masala, and cook for 5-10 minutes. 

  2. 2

    Meanwhile, put the sweet potato in a microwave-safe dish and cover with clingfilm. Microwave on high for 10 minutes, until very soft. Remove the clingfilm and then mash until smooth. 

  3. 3

    Add the mince and cook for a further 5 minutes until it has browned. Stir in the stock, peas and pasta sauce, bring to the boil then let simmer for 10 minutes. Pour the mixture into a 1-litre pie dish. 

  4. 4

    Preheat the grill to medium-high. Spoon the sweet potato mash over the mince mixture, and grill for 5-10 minutes, until golden.


    Cook's tip: for vegetarians, simply replace the beef mince with vegetarian mince and the beef stock cube with a vegetarian one.
