you are most welcome..

let me give you the recipe properly then.

This serves two
Ingredients:
1) 200gms of minced beef (i used low fat weightwatchers type)
2) 1 small carrot, chopped
3) 1 celery stalk, chopped
4) 1 onion, chopped
5) 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
6) 2 tablespoons of tomato puree
7) 2 tablespoons of tapioca starch (made from 2 tables of tapioca starch with some warm water)
8 ) one tsp of ground thyme
9) Salt
10) Olive oil
11) 2 medium-sized sweet potatoes, boiled and mashed with olive oil and salt.

Marinate ground beef with thyme and salt.

Preheat oven to 250 degree celsius.

Heat olive oil in a pan. Fry (in this order) garlic and onion until slightly browned and fragrant.. hahaha.. Next add carrot and celery. Add beef. Fry for a while. Stir in tomato paste. Add 2 tablespoons of tapioca starch. Stir for a while. Turn off fire.

Place minced beef in a baking tray. Smooth mashed sweet potato on top. You can make some patterns on the mash as you like. Put tray into oven, and cook at 180 degree celsius for 25 mins. If you like the top a bit brown, use the top grill function of your oven for 5 mins.

Enjoy.

Yams {Dioscoreaceae} 'Yam Family'
Sweet Potato {Concolvulvaceae} 'Morning Glory or Bindweed Family'

The only real way to truly distinguish between a Yam or Sweet Potato is from the vine of the plant itself....Colour has nothing to do with it.
And, as there is virtually no 'True Yam' that is cold-hardy - unless its from an asian or latino market you can almost rest assured it is some flavour of Sweet Potato.
Obviously, one must also bewary of the name 'Yucca' as well....


In the Japanese vernacular, the kana used for Yam, Imo, is even more confusingly used for all genera of edible starchy roots - so until I get back home to my CJK enabled Computer I can't explain anymore.
However, I am finally glad to hear of some varietal names finally as I've been pondering this question for awhile.

The slimy grated Nagaimo or Yamaimo is of the Yam family not Sweet Potato.
One of the few examples of a cold-hardy 'True Yam'.
