bottom
4. cook one medium onion in a large frying pan, cook until brown
5. add minced beef
6. when cooked, add a small tin of peas and diced carrots
7. cook until carrots are soft-ish
8. add 2 tbsp of flour
9. straight away, add tomato paste and beef stock
10. the sauce should get a little thick

read to combine now!
12. in a gratin plate, add the meat mixture
13. put the mashed potatos on top - dont worry if its not "even",
