to serve 4:
1 lb
lean minced beef (ground beef)
1 tablespoon
duck or goose fat
10oz can
condensed celery soup
7 fl oz
1 teaspoon
Worcestershire sauce
large potatoes
salt and pepper


How to Cook Creamy Hotpot

  1. Peel the potatoes and cut them into thin slices. Peel and chop the onion. Place the minced beef and chopped onion into a frying pan with the duck (or goose) fat and fry gently, stirring regularly, for about 5-10 minutes until the meat is well browned. Drain off any fat either using a slotted spoon or pouring the contents of the pan into a sieve (strainer) or colander for a few moments, then returning them to the pan. Add the soup, milk and Worcestershire sauce and stir well.
  2. Simmer the mixture gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, then place it into a 2 pint (1.2 ltr) ovenproof dish. Top the mixture with the potato slices and bake in a preheated moderately hot oven (Mk 6 - 400ºF - 200ºC) for about 30 minutes until the potatoes are tender.

If you like your potatoes golden brown, pour a little melted butter over them after cooking, and brown quickly under a hot grill.

This recipe made a good tasting hotpot in a fraction of the time it would normally take. In fact, the idea of using a condensed soup as the "gravy" makes me think I could use other soups like Classic Beef Broth or Beef & Vegetable Condensed Soup instead, to vary the flavour. The whole family like this one and for me it allowed me to prepare a hotpot in a quick time.

I found it a bit too "liquid". If I do it again, I would probably reduce the milk to half. The taste was good (I particularly like the idea of using acelery soup).

Good hotpot recipe. It's certainly not the "classic" version, but it works fine for a quick meal. Everyone enjoyed it.
