To make the cheese sauce:
Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a medium to low heat.
Slowly add the flour and stir continuously until a paste forms. Cook this on a low heat for about 2 minutes.
Gradually add your milk whisking every bit into the sauce before adding more. Take your time to prevent the sauce from becoming lumpy. If your sauce is too thick add a little more milk until you get the right consistency.
Add in your cheese and stir until it fully melts. Remove sauce from the heat.
To make the mince sauce
Brown the mince in oil.
When browned, add the tomatoes and tomato paste and sprinkle with beef stock.
