Directions For Mashed Potatoes
  1. Fill a large saucepan with cold water and a tablespoon of salt. Add the potatoes to the water and bring to a boil. Let potatoes cook until soft about 20 minutes.
  2. Once the potatoes are at the desired density, drain the potatoes and place them back into the saucepan for mashing. Add butter and cream and begin to mash potatoes into a semi-smooth consistency. Once at desired texture add cheese and mix well.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
General Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Add butter and olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat, let the olive oil heat up before adding vegetables. Saute onions, carrots, and garlic until tender for about 7 minutes. Season with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to your own taste.
  3. Once the vegetables have softened and started to brown a little add the tomato paste and mix evenly. Add the ground lamb or beef and cook until it is no longer pink about 10 minutes. Add the Worcestershire sauce and beef stock.
