Add the carrot, onion, garlic and celery and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add beef and stir until meat is browned. Add stock. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. While meat is cooking, peel and chop sweet potato into cubes. Add to a saucepan of cold water and bring to the boil and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes until soft. Drain potatoes, retaining a small amount of cooking fluid. Mash potatoes and add a little cooking liquid to get a creamy texture. Place meat mixture into bottom of flat ovenproof dish. Cover with the sweet potato mash and place under grill to lightly brown the top. Serve with green vegetables such as savoy cabbage, broccoli or spinach. This dish can be prepared in advance, refrigerated or frozen and cooked in the oven at 180 C for 25 minutes. Defrost fully if frozen.
