Pre heat the oven to 200°C.Cut up your onions finely, grate the carrot and mince the garlic. Heat 3 tbsp of coconut oil in a large pan and place the veg in for 5 minutes, add in the rosemary and thyme. Push the onions to the side and bronze the meat in the clear space (or use another pan), when the meat is brown, mix through with the veg.
STEP 2: ADD REMAINING INGREDIENTS AND SIMMER

While this is cooking, peel, roughly chop and steam the celeriac until it is cooked through. Mash or blend the celeriac with the rest of the coconut oil, egg yolk, 1 tsp mustard and seasoning.
STEP 4: ASSEMBLE AND COOK
Pour the meat mixture into a baking dish and pour the celeriac mash on top. Using a fork make gentle criss cross lines across the mash. Bake for 25 minutes – until slightly golden on top.
