Cover and bring to a simmer over high heat, then tilt the lid, reduce heat to medium and simmer for 15 mins or until potatoes are tender. 2.

Meanwhile, heat a large heavy frying pan over high heat. Add beef and cook, stirring to break up any lumps, for 6 mins or until cooked and beginning to brown. Using a slotted spoon, transfer beef to a bowl and set aside. 4. Pour off all but 1 tbs fat from pan and heat over medium heat. Add onion to pan and cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until pale golden. Add carrots, celery and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 6 mins or until vegetables soften. Stir in the tomato paste. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 min. Stir in the stock. Return the beef to pan. Simmer for 5 mins or until vegetables are tender and mixture thickens slightly. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a 7½-cup (1.875L) casserole dish. 5. Preheat grill on high. Spread potato mixture over beef filling. Brush with remaining butter. Place under grill for 6 mins or until top is crispy and golden brown.
