2 Large Onions Chopped
750g Minced Venison
2 Cloves Garlic Crushed
2 tbsps Plain Flour
300ml Venison or Beef Stock
1 tbsp Tomato Puree
3 tbsps Worcester Sauce
1 tbsp Fresh Thyme Leaves
Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1kg Mashed Potatoes made with Butter and Milk
50g Lincolnshire Poacher or Cheddar Cheese
In a large saucepan, cook the onion in the butter until soft and golden. Add the venison and garlic and raise the heat so the meat browns a little, stirring constantly.
Sprinkle in the flour, stir well, then add the stock, tomato puree and all the remaining seasonings. Bubble gently for 15 minutes, season again to taste, then place in a shallow dish.
Spread the mashed potato on top and scatter cheese over. Grill until golden brown and serve with seasonal vegetables.
