How to make it

  • In a large frying pan, heat up a small drizzle of olive oil to a medium heat and fry the onion and carrot for 3 minutes.
  • Add the green pepper and garlic and fry for another 3 minutes.
  • Add the minced lamb, and fry for 5 minutes, stirring thoroughly to break up the mince and get it cooking evenly.
  • At this point, it is a good idea to spoon off and discard some of the fat that will have been released from the lamb. Not all of it, mind you... fat equals flavour!
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for another 3 minutes, stirring to break up the tomatoes.
  • Add the flour, rosemary and bay leaf, and then the stock. Simmer for 10-15 minutes. Most of the liquid should go, leaving quite a thick, rich gravy. Check the seasoning.
  • Meanwhile, peel and cube the sweet potatoes. Boil for 8-10 minutes, until tender. Drain, and then mash with the butter. Season.
  • Spoon the lamb into a baking dish (remove the bay leaf), and smooth the sweet potato mash over the top.
  • Bake in an oven heated to 180c (gas mark 4) for 30 minutes.
