- 250g mushrooms, finely chopped
- 250g beef mince
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 carrots, peeled and diced
- 2 ribs celery, diced
- 1 cup beef stock
- ½ cup passata
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 bay leaf
- 2 sprigs thyme
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 ½ cups self raising flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp mustard powder
- Pinch salt
- 70g cold butter, cut into cubes
- ½ cup grated tasty cheese
- ½ cup milk
- 1 Egg
- Preheat oven to 180℃ and lightly grease a ceramic baking dish.
- Place oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the prepared onion, carrot and celery to the pan and cook, stirring for 3-4 minutes or until softened.
- Add mushrooms and mince to the pan and cook, stirring for 3-4 minutes or until the mince is mostly cooked.
- Add the stock, passata, Worcestershire sauce and herbs to the pan. Stir to combine. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes for the sauce to reduce and thicken.
- Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Transfer the mixture to the ceramic baking dish.
- To make the cobbler, place flour, baking powder, mustard powder and salt in a large bowl. Add butter and rub it into the flour mixture with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
- Add the cheese and stir to combine then make a well in the center of the mixture. Add the milk and stir until just combined.
- Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough until it comes together. Place the dough in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rest for 30 minutes.
- Remove the dough from the bowl and gently roll out to 2cm thickness on a lightly floured surface. Use a scone cutter to cut the dough into rounds.
- Place the rounds of cobbler dough on top of the prepared mushroom mixture.
- Place egg in a small bowl and lightly whisk. Use a pastry brush to glaze the top of the cobbler with the egg mixture.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
- Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
