Dad's New Zealand Mince Stew Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 4)

As the submitter suggested I used this recipe as a base for Shepards Pie. I did make a few changes. I only used 1/4 cup of ketchup (it is full of sugar so 2 cups would not be too healthy) and made up the rest with tomato paste. I also used worcesterchire suace instead of teriyaki and added frozen peas and corn. I think the curry powder is what makes this dish. A great recipe!

This is a keeper! I cut the black pepper back to 1 tablespoon and the curry to a half, i used 2 chopped onions and didn't thicken it, so many different things you can do with this, i think next time i'll quarter some potatoes and throw in some carrots while simmering. thanks for the great recipe!

Yummy! I thought this recipe was delicious. I didnt have any teriyaki sauce on hand so I used my favorite bbq sauce instead. I also listened to everyones recommendation on the pepper. It turned out great.

I've been using AllRecipes.com for years, but this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review. We LOVED this recipe! Kat's description planted the idea of shepherd's pie in my mind, so that's what I used the stew as a base for. I did take some other reviewers' suggestion and reduced the black pepper by 1/3, but that is the only change I made. I didn't simmer quite as long as the recipe calls for the second time. I made the stew in a large cast-iron skillet. When it was nearly done, I added a layer of sliced carrots to the top, then a thick layer of mashed potatoes to which I mad mixed in a little milk, butter, garlic powder, salt, and coarse pepper over that. I baked this, in the skillet, in the oven at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or so then added some shredded sharp cheddar to the top and baked another 15 minutes. The gravy baked up through the potatoes, which were a nice golden brown...it was SOOOO good! My husband hates leftovers, but the next day I warmed it up and made some homemade sweet cornbread to go with it, and he was very happy. I'm going to make up a big batch to freeze in smaller portions for easy quick dinners after work. I would like to see more family recipes from Kat!

This recipe is delicious. I did not have teriaki sauce, so substituted oyster and soya sauces instead. I also cut back on the amount of pepper to 1 tablespoon. It made an unusual and tasty base for my shepherds pie, much more flavourful than the typical beef base. Thank you for a great recipe Kat!

This is a really flavorful stew. It is very much like spicy sloppy joes or a sweet chili. My family enjoyed it, but we had to eat it with lots of bread or crackers to tame the pepper down! Next time, we'll use just 1 Tbsp of pepper, and keep everything else the same. Many of the recipes I find published are pretty shy about using spices, and I almost always need to add some more oomph -- it's kind of refreshing to find one where I need to back off some!
