Method

  1. 1

    On a medium heat, fry the onion and garlic in the coconut oil for 6 minutes, until they are soft but not brown.  Add a splash of Worcestershire sauce and the mushrooms, continue to fry for 3 minutes.

  2. 2

    Crumble in the beef mince, frying until most of the beef has browned. Sprinkle over the thyme and rosemary and pour in the beef stock, simmer for 25-30 minutes until the sauce has thickened.

  3. 3

    While the sauce is simmering, preheat the oven to 180oC. Add the sweet potato chunks to a pan of boiling water and boil for 10-15 minutes until the potatoes are soft enough to push a folk through. Drain the water from the pan thoroughly.  Season well with salt and pepper and mash thoroughly. Set the sweet potato aside until the sauce is done.

  4. 4

    Pour the beef sauce into a large oven dish and spread evenly then use a tablespoon to layer on the sweet potato. Bake for 20 minutes until the top is brown and crispy.
