Method

  1. Skin and core the kidneys, and cut the meats into small neat pieces.
  2. Wash, peel and slice the potatoes, and slice the onions.
  3. Line the casserole with a layer of these vegetables.
  4. Season well and fill the casserole with layers of meat, vegetables and seasonings.
  5. Pour on the water [or stock].
  6. Have a layer of potatoes on top, brush over with a little melted butter, cover with a "lid" of buttered paper, or the lid of the casserole, and cook for half-an-hour at fairly hot [220 C/425 F/Gas 7], then for 1½ hours in a slow oven [150 C/300 F/Gas 2].
  7. Remove the lid, and continue cooking for a further half hour to brown the top layer.

Variations

This is a very traditional and basic recipe. Nowadays other root vegetables and herbs are included and neck of lamb takes the place of mutton.
