|FOOD|St Patrick's Day cottage pie

This St Patrick's day we came up with a St Patrick's Day cottage pie, I have to say, my veggie version was delicious and I'm assured from The Hubs that this version was totally delicious too!

We won't be keeping this for once a year, I know that much, and it's an extra portion of veg which is always a bonus.

450g (1lb) steak mince
1 tbsp oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 tbsp flour
300ml (1/2 pint) Guinness 
1 beef stock pot
800g (2lb) potatoes, chopped
200g (7oz) chopped kale
1 leek, chopped
25g (1oz) butter
45ml (3 tbsp) fresh milk
50g (2oz) grated cheese

1. Fry onion in the oil until golden, add mince until browned.
2. Add flour and cook, stirring for 1 minute.  Gradually blend in Guinness and stock cube.
3. Cook, stirring until mixture thickens and boils.  Cover and simmer for 25 mins.
4. Turn mind mixture into a 1.1l ovenproof dish.
5. Meanwhile, cook potatoes in boiling water after 10 mins add the kale and leek and cook for a further 5-10 mins until potatoes are tender.
6. Drain well, mash with butter and milk.
7. Cover mince mixture with potato and top with cheese.
8. Bake at 190oC for 1 1/4 hrs until golden.
