Kumara topping


1.Heat oil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Cook beef in batches for 2 minutes or until browned. Remove from pan.
2.Reduce heat to medium. Cook onion, carrot, celery and garlic in the same pan, stirring, for 5 minutes or until vegetables have softened. Return beef to pan with wine and beef stock, then bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 1½ hours or until beef is tender and sauce thickens.
3.Boil, steam or microwave kumara until soft. Drain and mash. Stir in goat’s cheese. Season to taste.
4.Combine cornflour and water. Add to beef mixture. Cook, stirring, over high heat for 5 minutes or until sauce boils and thickens. Season. Stir in oregano.
5.Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease 4 x 1-cup capacity ovenproof dishes and place on an oven tray. Spoon beef mixture into dishes. Top with kumara topping. Bake for 30 minutes or until filling is hot.
