Pasture Pie

For our evening meal we had Pasture Pie. When we had our lambs and pigs processed we got rather a large quantity of ground pork but a rather lean quantity of ground lamb. As a Shepherd's Pie is made from lamb I could not call it that as it had pork in it too. And, due to both animals feeding of our pasture the name for the mixed meat pie was born. It was absolutely delightfully yummy.

1Ib each of Ground Pork and Ground Lamb
1 jar of tomato sauce ( I use homemade tomato sauce)
3 cloves of garlic
1 large onion
A good handful of kale (I used our frozen kale)
1 heaped tsp of cumin
A good grind of black pepper
Enough mashed potato to cover top
Grated cheese

Cook both meats until browned, add garlic, onion, tomato sauce, cumin and pepper. Cook for 1/2 hour until reduced and thickened. Add kale and cook for a further 5 minutes. Place in a large dish and top with mashed potato. Sprinkle with grated cheese. Bake 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
