Mince and Tatties are a cheap, old fashioned, no frills meal that is perfect for winter weather.



500g pack Minced Lamb

1 Oxo (Beef) Stock Cube

1 Large Onion, peeled & finely diced

3 Carrots, peeled and chopped into small dice

Around 450ml of beef gravy, (Bisto gravy powder OR beef stock preferred)

Salt and Pepper (to taste)

1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce (Optional but recomended)


Place a large saucepan over a medium high heat and brown the mince.

Crumble in the Oxo cube, add the onions and continue to cook on a medimum to high heat until the mince has browned.

Add the diced carrots, the gravy or beef stock and the Worcestershire sauce.

Reduce the heat to low-medium with a lid and cook for at least an hour or until the mince is nice and soft and the gravy has thickened. Season to taste. That’s all there is to it!Cook your tatties, mash them with lots of butter (some people add milk but I don’t usually bother) and season to taste with salt and pepper.



I prefer to use Bisto gravy powder, but you can use any beef stock you like.

The Oxo cube helps make the gravy a little richer, but you don’t have to add it.
