For something different to the traditional shepherd's pie, why not try substituting with goat meat.


  • 100g butter

  • 500g minced goat

  • 1 large carrot, grated

  • 1 large brown onion, grated

  • 1L chicken stock

  • 2 tsp flour blended with 60ml water

  • ½ tsp pepper

  • ½ bunch of thyme

  • 2 tomatoes, sliced

  • Mashed potato

  • Grated cheese


  • 1.

    Melt the butter in frying pan, fry the minced goat meat until browned (in batches if necessary) and then add the stock.

  • 2.

    Simmer until the stock has reduced 90% from the 1L added.

  • 3.

    Add carrot, onion, thyme, flour, salt and pepper, and simmer for 5 minutes, or until thickened.

  • 4.

    Place meat in an ovenproof dish, cover with tomato slices and place the mash on top of the sliced tomato. Sprinkle with grated cheese.

  • 5.

    Bake in a moderate oven (180ºC if fan forced, 190ºC if not) until potato is golden brown.
