British comfort food! This recipe requires ground lamb; if using ground beef, then it is called Cottage Pie. I have used ground deer (venison) and elk for this recipe also; marinating the deer in a little red wine overnight mellows out the gamey flavor.

Mrs. Maggot's Cottage Pie Slice a large onion and 2 carrots and sauté in bacon fat until the onions are limp. Add 1 pound of cubed beef, 1 tablespoon of flour, and salt and pepper to taste. Saute for several minutes, and then add 1/2 cup of beef stock and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes. Peel and quarter 1 pound of potatoes and boil until soft.
