Ground horse meat, mushrooms, and peas, covered with mashed sweet potatoes, and baked until golden.

Iron-rich and very lean, horse meat is also very tender. Its taste is similar to beef but a bit sweeter.

Ingredients

5 sweet potatoes, peeled then halved 900 g
1 1/2 onions, finely chopped 300 g
16 button (white) mushrooms, thinly sliced 220 g
2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
500 g ground horsemeat
3/4 cup canned tomatoes (diced) 200 g
2 tbsp tomato paste 30 mL
15 drops Tabasco sauce 0.63 mL
1 cup chicken broth 250 mL
1 cup frozen peas 120 g
1 cup milk, partly skimmed, 2% 250 mL
2 tbsp butter, unsalted 28 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
salt [optional]

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 205°C/400°F.
  2. Prepare the vegetables: finely chop the onion; thinly slice the mushrooms; peel the potatoes, cut them in half then boil them 20-25 min until very tender. Drain them well and set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the meat and sear it until it looses its red colour, about 4-5 min. It is important not to overcook, otherwise the meat becomes too dry.
  4. When the meat is golden-coloured, add the chopped onion then cook 2 min with stirring. Stir in the diced tomatoes, mushrooms, tomato paste, Tabasco sauce, and broth. Add the frozen peas and continue cooking until heated through, about 4-5 min. Add salt and pepper. Remove the pan from the heat and transfer the contents to a baking dish.
  5. Pour the milk into a large microwave-safe bowl. Add the butter and microwave on medium-high a few minutes, uncovered, until very hot. Add the cooked potatoes and mash the mixture until it is creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place a spoonful of the potato mixture on top of the meat mixture, then gently spread it with a spoon to cover evenly.
  6. Bake in the middle of the oven until the top is golden-brown, about 30 min. Serve.

Remarks

The pie can be frozen right after having completed step 5. It can then be baked (taken directly from the freezer) for about 50 min at 205°C/400°F.
