  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 500 g (1 lb 2 oz) minced (ground) steak
  • 2 tablespoons plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 250 ml (9 fl oz/1 cup) salt-reduced beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf (Italian) parsley
  • 4 all-purpose potatoes, cooked
  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • 60 g (2 1/4 oz/1/2 cup) grated cheese

5. Spoon the meat mixture into four 200 ml (7 fl oz) ovenproof bowls.

6. Top with the mixed vegetables and spread the mashed potato over the top.
