Method:

* Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius. Bring a large pot of water to the boil and add a pinch of salt.

* Peel the potatoes and boil in the salted water until tender. Drain and mash immediately with half the butter, the milk and 1 tsp salt. Set aside.

* In a large non-stick frying pan, heat the oil over a medium heat and add the onion. Sauté for 2 minutes or until transparent and fragrant.

* Add the beef and cook for a further 6-8 minutes. Break up any lumps with a spoon, until all the meat has browned.

* Blanch the diced carrot in boiling water or microwave for a couple of minutes until soft. Add to the pan and season with remaining salt.

* Add the Fountain Pepper Steak sauce, Fountain Spicy Red sauce and Fountain Worcestershire sauce and simmer for 5 minutes or until the liquid reduces, the flavours have intensified and the meat is a dark brown colour. Stir through the baby peas.

* Place the meat into a 22 x 22cm square glass or ceramic baking dish. Carefully spread the mashed potato over the top and mark the surface with a fork for a crispy top. Dot the remaining butter over the potato, with a fork.

* Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the potato is a deep golden brown.
