Turkish Potato Beef Casserole

I copied binnur's Turkish recipe but didn't have any lamb chunks, so replaced the lamb with mince beef. It's very similar to the English cottage pie.

Turkish Potato Beef Casserole

400g mince beef
5 tbsp diced tomato, in a can
1 cup hot water

3 tbsp sunflower oil
6 medium white potatoes, peeled, sliced
3 carrots, peeled, sliced
1 large onion, sliced

1 cup beef stock
5 tbsp crushed tomatoes, in a can
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or butter
salt & pepper
mixed herbs

Cooking Method:
Cook the minced beed in a little olive oil, add salt and pepper. (here I added a tin of peas as well).
Add 1 cup of hot water with diced tomatoes and cook over medium-low heat for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, lightly fry the potatoes with sunflower oil in a large skillet over medium heat, then put aside. Then fry the carrots and onions. Stir occasionally.

Spread the minced beef in a medium sized casserole dish
