    Whenever I make a shepards pie using stock its very watery. Does anyone have any ideas on how to thicken it up? Am I doing something wrong?

    Thank you! xx

    Sounds like your using to much stock to me, try reducing the amount & that should help :)

    I always add a tin on baked beans. It makes a great thick sauce, and by adding a beef stock cube gives it a great creamy and beefy taste --> YUM YUM YUM

    a couple of teaspoons of marmite into the mixture gives a lovely flavour and don't worry if you hate marmite. It doesnt end up tasting of marmite I promise ;).

    When I make it I am on an extra easy day so I always throw in a tin of baked beans with the mince and onions etc. Would suggest not putting as much water in perhaps?

    I just stick with oxo really, but i dont use too much water with it, i also add some carrot and swede in with my mashed potato, which is quite nice, good way to use up free foods!!! xxx
