- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- tbsp thyme
- 1 tsp Marmite
- 1 beef stock cube
- 150 ml red wine
- 375 g corned beef, cut into chunks

- STEP 4Add the corned beef and and season with freshly ground pepper.
- STEP 5Cook for further 8-10 minutes, stirring well. Pour into a suitable oven dish and set aside to make the potatoes.
- STEP 6Boiling the potatoes - bring large pan of water to the boil. Peel and chop the potatoes into small cubes and add to the boiling water. Boil for 20mins or until soft. You can check this easily by testing whether a sharp knife can penetrate one of the potato cubes easily - if it does, they're ready to mash!
- STEP 7Mashing the potatoes - draining the water and mash using suitable masher, pouring the butter and milk as you go. Mash until completely smooth with no lumps left.
- STEP 8Scoop the mashed potato evenly onto the corned beef mix and run a fork over it to texturise - will help the potato to crisp,
- STEP 9Put the dish into the pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes or until crisp and golden on top.
