I'm sorry but this is just way too much work for a casserole. All in one dishes are supposed to be quick and simple. This one is not. Here's a trick. Take mirepoix, beef or lamb cut into cubes, garlic. Saute until meat is brown, onion is tender. Add butter, flour. Add tomatoes, wine, worchestershire, spices. Top with mashed potatoes, cheese and bake till browned and bubbly. There. much easier. No measuring. Great result.
This was good, but not special. I made it with ground beef and added carrots and green beans. My husband topped his with ketchup Australian-style. It is definitely comfort food, but may not be the recipe for me.
I'm a Scott and go way back in history this one comes close to my grannys 1840 the only thing she didn't have is ceramic dish
Gordon is a favorite in this household. We own several of his cook books, and love his show. This happens to be one of our favorite recipes. We've used it a lot. It also tastes wonderful as a Cottage pie with ground beef instead of lamb. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!
This is hands down one of the best 'casseroles' that have ever come out of my kitchen!! DH LOVES it!! I did add the grated carrot. Thank you for posting ! After seeing this on Kitchen Nightmares...we also HAD to try it!
I too was inspired to try this recipe after seeing the Kitchen Nightmares episode. I have submitted my own photos which may be added by the moderators. My variation to this core recipe (as others have suggested) is the addition of shredded carrot. I also added cut fresh green beans. I've previously added corn and peas - depends on my mood. I've also posted some pics on FB: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=72427&id=592797950&l=1cbe84ba79
I thought this recipe was lovely, added a few things but overall great. hubby loved it which was the main thing. Will use this for a nice easy meal for winter for sure.
I love Chef Ramsay so what could I do but try this recipe? Awesome! Thanks sooo much!
Si made this for dinner tonight & we thoroughly enjoyed - I'm pretty sure he's eaten enough for 3 people so far & there's still a while yet before bedtime lol! He took ChefNikolai's advice with the additions & they seemed to work really well. A simple & effective recipe - thanks for posting :)
