1 tsp salt, divided
1 onion, finely chopped
1 celery stalk, finely chopped
450 g lean ground beef
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups low-sodium beef broth
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 cup frozen green peas

Instead of making individual cottage pies, use a 10-in. wide oven-safe frying pan for beef mixture. Spread potato mixture over beef mixture and broil until golden brown, 2 to 3 min.
