How To Make Chilli Beef Oat Cobbler:

 Prep time: 30 minutes

Cooking Time: 35 Minutes

 Serves: 4


  • 500g lean minced beef
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 green pepper, deseeded and finely diced
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 heaped tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp chilli powder (or more to taste)
  • 500ml carton passata (or 1 x 400g can chopped tomatoes)
  • 2 heaped tbsp tomato puree
  • 400g can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 300ml beef stock

Oat Cobbler Topping:

  • 80g rolled oats
  • 200g wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 2 medium eggs, beaten
  • 6-8 tbsp milk
  • 1 medium egg, beaten, for glazing the cobbler


  1. Preheat oven to 180oC, gas mark 4.
  2. Fry the mince over a high heat until browned, remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. In the same pan fry the onion, garlic and pepper for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add the spices and herbs and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  5. Return the mince to the pan along with the tomato passata (or tinned tomatoes), puree, beans and stock, cook over a low heat for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, blitz up ¾ of the oats until a fine consistency, then combine with the flour in a mixing bowl.
  7. Rub in the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  8. Stir in the beaten eggs and add the milk one tablespoon at a time, mixing until it resembles a thick batter.
  9. Place the chilli into an ovenproof dish then dot 8-10 tablespoons of the batter on top, making sure they don’t touch.
  10. To glaze, brush the cobbler with some beaten egg then scatter over the remaining oats.
  11. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until golden.

 Cooking Tips:

  • Serve with some grated cheese, jalapenos and a dollop of soured cream.
  • Use 60g fine oatmeal instead of blitzing oats, along with 20g rolled oats for sprinkling.
  • Glaze with a little milk instead of egg.
