1. Pour 2 cups of boiling water over the mushrooms. Peel and chop onions, carrots, and garlic.
2. Pour oil into a large pan. When warm, add chopped onions, carrots and garlic. Add salt to prevent vegetables from burning. Stir for 10 minutes.
3. Drain the mushrooms and set the water aside. Chop the mushrooms coarsely. Add the chopped mushrooms and Eringi mushrooms into the pan. Cook for 5 minutes. Transfer the cooked vegetables onto a plate. Set aside.
4. Oil the pan and add the minced meat. Break them up into smaller pieces and stir for 5 minutes. Add salt. Add the vegetable mixture back into the pan. Stir the flour in. Still stirring, pour in the mushroom-soaked water, tomatoes, tomato paste, Marsala and a few drops of Worcestershire sauce. Stir well.
5. Cover the pan partially with a lid and lower the heat. Let it sit for an hour. Once cooked, taste for seasoning before removing from heat.
6. Boil the potatoes in a large pan of salted water until mildly tender. Add peeled parsnips and cut into chunks. Simmer until the potatoes and parsnips are tender enough to mash. Drain the water and let them dry. Warm the milk and melt the butter.
7. Mash the potatoes and parsnips. Grate in fresh nutmeg and add salt to taste.
8. Place the meat mixture into a large dish, approximately 12.5 inches by 14.5 inches. Dollop the potato mash on top, spreading with a spatula or back of a spoon. Use a fork to draw lines over the top for design. Dot the top with butter and sprinkle with Worcestershire sauce.
*Tip: If you’re cooking while the ingredients are still warm, put the dish in the oven for 10 minutes at 220 degrees celsius to have a golden and crisp top. Otherwise, cook at 190 degrees celsius for 60 minutes.
