750g garden peas
Packet of Knorr beef casserole mix
1kg Rooster potatoes
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
250ml fresh cream

To serve
Sautéed cabbage, (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 220˚C/200˚C fan/gas mark 7
  2. In a large saucepan, cover the potatoes in salted cold water, bring to the boil and simmer until tender. Drain well, then return to the pan and steam dry for 1-2 minutes. Mash well with the cream and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Sautée the carrots and the veg. Once softened, add in the beef and cook until browned.
