According to my (late - great) Mother, “The secret to a good pan of Scouse is to let it stew to doll rags”. (Whatever that means!) Although this recipe states Beef Stock Cubes, my mother always used 'Gravy Salt'... She used to 'bulk' this out by adding more potatoes. When we kids were small and there wasn't much money; she made this with 1/4lb of mince and 5lb of potatoes. As a small child I STILL found it yummy!!
