Step 3:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 4:

Peel the skin of the potatoes and slice them about a quarter of an inch. Put the potatoes in a pot of water, add some salt and let it boil for 5 minutes or until they are a little translucent on the edges and not wholly tender. Strain the water and run in cold water. Shake the water off as much as you can.

Step 5:

Spread some butter in your baking dish and layer some of the potatoes on the bottom. Sprinkle a thin layer of salt over the potatoes. Then pour over half of the beef mixture and spread it evenly. Next, sprinkle the cheese on top. Add another layer and do the same process.
