  1. Step 1

    Place the flour in a large plastic bag. Season. Add the beef to the bag and gently shake to coat. Heat half the oil in a large ovenproof casserole dish over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook, in 3 batches, for 5 mins or until browned. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Step 2

    Heat the remaining oil in the same dish. Add the onion, carrot and swede and cook for 5 mins or until vegetables are just tender. Return the beef to the dish with the wine, tomato, stock and oregano. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 30 mins or until beef is tender.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, boil, steam or microwave the cauliflower until completely tender. Place in a food processor or blender with the milk, butter and sour cream and process or blend until smooth. Season. Cover to keep warm.
  4. Step 4

    Preheat grill on high. Spread the cauliflower mash over the beef mixture. Cook under the grill for 3 mins or until cauliflower mash is golden brown.
  5. Step 5

    Serve the pie with green beans.
