Beefis, Neeps & Tatties
Mince - about a kilo of beef
Turnip - diced - about half a kilo
Carrots - diced - about half a kilo
Bell Peppers - diced - one or two
Spice Mix for Fajitas - Old El Paso
Cashew Nuts - I had a 65 gram bag of salted ones
Tomato Paste - about half a tube
Couple of Potatoes - thinly sliced
Boil & mash the Turnip & Carrots - can take a long while to soften enough. Season well with salt & pepper.
Fry the Mince & Peppers until browned off then add a little water and Tomato Paste.
Mix in the Spice Mix. Simmer and stir for a few minutes. Stir in the Cashew Nuts.
Transfer this "Beefis" mix to a large over dish and layer the mash on top using back of a spoon.
Brush the Sliced Potatoes with oil and layer on the top with a little more seasoning for effect..
Bake in a medium over for about an hour and then enjoy with some of Burns poetry...
Edit - think I'll rename it Texas, Neeps & Tatties :-)
