Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Classic Cottage Pie With Broccoli

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Boil a kettle

Peel the potatoes and cut them into small bite-sized pieces

Add the chopped potatoes to a pot of boiled water with a generous pinch of salt, bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 10 min or until fork-tender

Once done, drain and return to the pot to steam dry

2 Classic Cottage Pie With Broccoli

Meanwhile, re-boil a kettle 

Peel and finely chop the red onion[s]

Top, tail, peel and dice the carrot[s]

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

3 Classic Cottage Pie With Broccoli

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the chopped onion, carrot and garlic and cook for 3-4 min or until beginning to soften

Meanwhile, dissolve the beef stock cube[s] in 200ml [400ml] boiled water (for a lower salt option, use half!) and add the tomato paste and Henderson's Relish – this is your tomato stock

4 Classic Cottage Pie With Broccoli

Once your vegetables have softened, add the beef mince and cook for 3-4 min or until browned, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go 

Add the tomato stock to the beef mince and bring to the boil

Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 8-10 min or until the liquid has reduced by half – this is your beef mixture

Meanwhile, grate the cheddar cheese 

5 Classic Cottage Pie With Broccoli

Return the drained potatoes to a low heat with a large knob of butter, a splash of milk and a generous pinch of salt and pepper

Mash until smooth – this is your creamy mashed potato

6 Classic Cottage Pie With Broccoli

Once the beef mixture has thickened, transfer it to an oven-proof dish (or individual ones)

Top the beef mixture with the creamy mashed potato

Sprinkle over the grated cheese

Put the dish in the oven for 15-20 min or until golden brown and bubbling – this is your cottage pie 

7 Classic Cottage Pie With Broccoli

Meanwhile, re-boil a kettle

Cut the broccoli into florets

Add the broccoli florets to a pot with plenty of boiled water and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, cook for 4-6 min or until tender with a slight bite

Once done, drain the broccoli and season generously with salt and pepper
