  • 1lb minced beef
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 can tomatoes
  • 1 can baked beans
  • 2 oxo's
  • gravy granules (this is to make the gravy a little thicker)
  • salt & pepper
  • 1lb potatoes very thinly sliced
  • about 4oz cheddar cheese
  • couple of squeezes of tom puree
  • a cup full of water


    1. Gently fry the onions until translucent, add the mince and gently fry until brown. Add the beans, tomatoes, oxo's, tom puree, S&P, and the gravy granules and simmer until it has thickened a little, add the water if hardly any gravy.
    2. Transfer to a lidded oven proof dish and layer the thinly sliced potatoes on top.
    3. Bake in oven on mark 5. or 375.f for about an hour or more, until potatoes are cooked, (I usually stick a blunt knife in the middle to check)Sprinkle the grated cheddar cheese on top and put back in oven (without the lid) till nice and golden. I sometimes cook on about gas mark 4 to slowly cook this if I am nipping out to the shop or doing a school run.
    4. Serve with anything you want or on its own.
    5. Can either use corned beef or the left overs from the beef joint instead of mince. If using corned beef omit the salt.
    6. I sometime put carrots (I cheat and use a small can) and sweetcorn in, to make a difference. I also add more sliced potatoes to make it more filling, depends on how many I have over for dinner.

I’m going to make this tomorrow, can anyone tell me do you just chuck the stock in? Or do you make it up with boiling water first? I don’t want to end up with no sauce or a water dish with floating mince.

It depends on how you prefer to do it. I chuck it in and stir continuously until the stockpots or oxo's have dissolved. My daughter dissolves hers first in water then adds it.

I like to serve this in dishes, with a chunk of crusty bread. I do put a little hot paprika in during the cold winter months, to spice it up. I also serve with vegetables, it really doesn't need anything else as it is very filling. My mother has been making this for over 40 years.
