Mum's Stew Shepherd's Pie

What's Needed

  • Thermomix
  • Oven
My Mum's stew in a Thermomix - couldn't be easier.
This recipe always makes me feel "home" and that Mum is close by. I always feel her standing over my shoulder when I make it, or maybe that is wishful thinking.
It was great when the kids were little - I would "cook the hell out of it" so all the veggies disappeared into sauce and I knew that they were getting a bowl of goodness and love. Now all I have to do is blitz the veggies and it is all hidden away if need be.

Peeled my potatoes with our Thermomix Blade Cover & Peeler

Available FREE as a host reward for a qualifying demo

All ready for the 25 minute cook. This is where you set your oven and cook those potatoes

Place in your baking dish ready for the potatoes and cheese

Dollop on the potatoes and spread with a fork as best as you can, then sprinkle with cheese.

All ready after 25 mins. I cooked mine a little less as it was cooked early and ready for reheating in the oven later.

The Firra Cast Iron Baking Dish. It isn’t a cheap purchase but it will be a lifelong one. I hesitated, but ended up buying when TheMixShop had a sale, plus consultants discount. 100% worth it. I just love it – more than I thought I would actually. Cleans SO EASILY!
