She revealed the meal is perfect for when yous are feeling time-poor as three of the boats cook in less than 10 minutes.

‘I used the pre-done mash you can get at Woollies and have added a picture,’ she said.

‘I also cooked the mince and vegetables the night before when I had more time so tonight all we had to do was throw it together and air fry.’

And she said she was more than impressed with how the meal turned out.

She shared pictures of the finished meals and people appeared to be on board with the idea.

They take just eight minutes to cook in the air fryer and can be assembled in less that 15

‘I’m going to try making these, I get that mash too all the time now, yes it might be lazy but it’s yummy and easy, while I am cooking steak and tomatoes in my air fryer I heat one of those mash in my microwave, dinner in about 10 mins,’ said another.

The mince can be your preferred stew – but is best cooked the night before to help the flavour develop – according to home cooks on the post.

The mashed potato appears to be a popular alternative too making the topping from scratch.
