Instructions

PREP & COOK POTATOES
1

Peel, then cut potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Combine potatoes, 1 tsp salt and enough water to cover (approx. 1 inch) in a large pot. (NOTE: Use the same size pot, water and salt amounts for 4 ppl.) Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, until the potatoes are fork-tender, 10-12 min. 

PREP
2

While potatoes cook, roughly chop parsley. Strip 1 tbsp thyme leaves (dbl for 4ppl). Peel, then mince or grate garlic.

COOK BEEF & VEGGIES
3

Heat a large ovenproof pan over medium heat. When hot add ½ tbsp oil (dbl for 4ppl), then beef. Cook, breaking up beef into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.** Season with salt and pepper. When beef is cooked, transfer to a plate and set aside. Heat the same pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4ppl), then mirepoix, thyme and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until veggies soften slightly, 3-4 min. 

COOK BEEF FILLING
4

Add beef and any juices (from the plate) to the pan. Add tomato sauce and sprinkle over flour. Cook, stirring often, until veggies and beef are coated, 1-2 min. Add soy sauce and 1 cup water (dbl for 4ppl). Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens and veggies are tender, 4-5 min. Stir in peas and season with salt and pepper. 

MASH POTATOES
5

When the potatoes are tender, drain and return to the same pot. Add cream cheese, cheddar, half the parsley, 1/4 cup milk and 1 tbsp butter (dbl both for 4ppl). Using a potato masher, mash together until creamy. Season with salt and pepper. (NOTE: If you don't have an oven-proof pan, transfer beef and veggie mixture at this point to a 8x8-inch baking dish for 2 ppl or a 9x13-inch dish for 4 ppl.)

FINISH & SERVE
6

When beef and veggies are done, top with mashed potatoes, spreading evenly over top. Broil in middle of oven until potato topping begins to brown, 4-5 min. Divide cottage pie among plates. Sprinkle with remaining parsley.
