Mince pie and potatoes

Super Delicious
פשטידת בשר ותפוחי אדמה

This pie I made after I found myself with ground meat and lack of a strong inclination to make meatballs of any kind. So I went with an “experiment” between potatoes and tomato sauce. The sauce enriched by beef stock. The result was a kind of lasagne, but in place of the lasagne sheets i instead went with potatoes – claimed by many to be tastier. You be the judge.
