  • 1/4

    tsp (1 mL) dried thyme

  • Pepper

  • 1/4

    cup (60 mL) Worcestershire sauce

  • 2

    tbsp (30 mL) tomato paste

  • 1

    tbsp (15 mL) all-purpose flour

    cups (500 mL) frozen mixed vegetables

  • 1-1/2

    lb (675 g) mashed potatoes

  • 1/2

    cup (125 mL) EACH shredded aged and mild cheddar cheese

Directions

In a 12-inch (30-cm) skillet over medium-high heat, cook onion, beef, thyme and pepper to taste, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until beef is browned and onion is softened, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; stir in Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste and flour. Stir in vegetables and stock; simmer until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Divide into portions, spooning into 2 custard cups for the kids and 2 ramekins or small gratin dish for the adults. Sultry Sirloin Gratin: Gradually stir half of the aged cheddar into half the mashed potatoes; spread evenly over beef mixture. Top each with remaining aged cheddar; bake in a 350 F (180 C) oven until lightly golden, about 25 minutes. Broil until topping is rich golden-brown, about 3 minutes, if desired. Serve with mesclun mix salad greens dressed with your favourite vinaigrette or a caesar salad. Shepherd’s Pie For Them: Gradually stir half of the mild cheddar into half the Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes; spread evenly over beef mixture. Top each with remaining mild cheddar; bake in a 350 F (180 C) oven until lightly golden, about 25 minutes. Broil until topping is rich golden-brown, about 3 minutes, if desired.
