Great recipe. I made a few changes, just due to what I had on hand. Instead of the ketchup, I added about I cup of home-made bolognese sauce. We make a big batch of this every wek, so we always have some on hand. I used frozen mixed vegetables (peas, corn, carrots) and added to the beef as it was browning. I mixed about 1 teaspoon of butter and one teaspoon of flour together over low heat and added i cup of beef broth. This made a nice gravy that I mixed into the beff mixture. Then I put the whole mixture into the casserole and into the oven on low heat for a couple of hours... the flavours came together nicely. I would imagine that a slow cooker would work just as well. For the potatoes, I used roasted garlic and added it to the mash. When I'm in a fussy mood, I use a large star-tip and piping bag to put on the mash. It looks pretty and keeps the potatoes nice and fluffy on top of the meat, instead pressed into the meat as happens with the spoon and spread method. Overall, big hit and can be modified to suit any taste.
