    I love mince and tatties! Just had it the other night. I brown the mince, add a whole onion and some bisto gravy salt. The best is when you mash in the tatties, I spend ages doing this until it is just right. Yum Yum!

    Brown a chopped onion and put in slow cooker, brown mince and add to onion. Bring 1/4 - 1/2 pt cheapest red wine to boil and simmer for a few minutes to boil off alcohol then add to mince & onions with 1 beef stock cube and enough boiling water to just cover meat. Switch on slow cooker at auto and leave for 6 hours or so. Drain meat (retaining gravy) into a pan and add flour stirring well, cook for a minute then add gravy (gravy browning can be added here if wished) to required thickness. Taste for seasoning then serve.

    Thumbs up Mince n Tatties

    Brown off mince with chopped onion, drain off any fat, crumble a beef stock cube over the mince and then add gravy and carrots and allow to simmer. Before serving up heat a white pudding up in microwave for 1 minute and mix into the mince, allow to simmer for 5 more minutes and hey presto!! Yummy!

    Your recipe reminded me of how we used to make it for a change sometimes.
    A white pudding was placed in with the mince and onions after they'd been browned and water/stock added. Place in a moderate oven and cook for 3/4 hour. When cooked discard the skin from the pudding and mix contents well before serving. This does away with the need to thicken the mince with flour/cornflour.

    Brown the mince then pour off any fat. Add water, onions and carrots (neeps too if you like them) add a stock cube to give the flavour a boost. Cook for 1hr add some bisto powder to thicken the gravy then serve with tatties and mealie pudding.............mmmmm!

    My Granny used to get her mince from a butcher, I think it was on Rose Street or Duncan Street. If you browned her mince and drained off the fat, there wouldn’t have been anything left!
    Try this for a change, one level teaspoon of curry powder. Trust me, don’t knock it ‘till you’ve tried it.
