First melt some beef dripping in a large, wide-based saucepan and fry the onions in it to soften for about 5 minutes or so; then turn the heat right up, add the cubes of beef and kidney and cook them to a nutty brown colour – keep stirring and turning the meat as it browns.
Now lower the heat a bit, sprinkle in the flour and stir it around to soak up the meat juices.
Season well, add the Worcestershire sauce, then gradually stir in the stock and bring to simmering point.
Next pour the meat mixture into a casserole or pie dish and arrange the thickly sliced potatoes in layers all over the meat.
Season the potatoes, brush them with melted butter, then cover the casserole with a lid or foil and bake in the over for 2½ -3 hours.
Before serving remove the lid and brown the potatoes under a very hot grill to get them really crisp.
