Ron's Notes:-   A Fife version of Kirkcaldy Stovies, the popular Scottish dish of potatoes, with onion, minced beef and corned beef. It's a warming and filling meal especially during the cold winter months, and the recipe below serves 3 to 4 people.

250ml/8fl.oz. Beef stock (1 stock cube) or roast beef gravy

3 large Potatoes, peeled thickly sliced

200g/7oz Corned beef, cut into chunks

Salt and Pepper to taste




1. Melt the butter in the pan then add the chopped onion and sauté until soft and translucent.


2. Add the finely chopped mince and stir with the onion until mince browned.


3. Add the sliced potatoes to the pan along with the beef stock, or roast beef gravy, cover and bring slowly to the boil.


4. Simmer gently for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
