Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to Gas Mark 5 / 190°C / 375°F.
  2. Spray a large flameproof casserole dish with cooking spray and place over a high heat. Add the meat a handful at a time, so that it seals and browns. Add the leeks, celery, carrots and turnip and cook for 3 - 4 minutes, until slightly softened.
  3. Add the stock, mushrooms, parsley and thyme. Season. Bring up to the boil, then cover and transfer to the oven. Cook for 1 hour. If you are wheat or yeast intolerant.
  4. Meanwhile, par-boil the potatoes for 10 minutes. Cool and slice.
  5. Remove the casserole from the oven and layer the potatoes and onion over the top in overlapping layers. Return to the oven and bake for 45 - 50 minutes, without a lid, until the potatoes are browned and crisp.
