Potato Beef Pot Pie

A tasty ground beef pie with a cheesy potato topping that is cheap, easy to make and always popular with my family for dinner. Recipe serves 4.


1 tablespoon oil
1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, grated
1 pound (500 g) ground beef (mince)
1 cup frozen peas
1/4 cup water
1 small beef stock cube, crumbled
1 cup cooked rice
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
2 cups mashed potato
1 cup grated tasty cheese
1/2 cup packaged breadcrumbs
Paprika for sprinkling


1. Heat oil in large saucepan, add onion and carrot, cook, stirring, until onion is soft (or microwave on High for 3 minutes), add beef and cook until well browned (or microwave on High for 8 minutes).
2. Add peas, water, stock cube and rice, bring to the boil, reduce heat, simmer, covered, for about 15 minutes or until meat is tender (or microwave on High for about 15 minutes); stir in sauce.
3. Pour mixture into a 10 cup capacity ovenproof dish, top with mashed potato, cheese and breadcrumbs. Bake in moderate oven for minutes or until golden brown, sprinkle paprika over top.
