This is a french canadian traditionnal meal that could be considered as a version of the Shepherd's pie. It is named "Pâté chinois" in french, which could be translated by "Chinese pie" because it is said that in the early 18th century, there was a lot of chinese people coming to Canada to work on the train tracks and the food served on the building sites were mainly made with corn, beef and potatoes, the main ingredients of the "Pâté chinois".
Preheat the oven at 375 celsius degrees.
Cook the potatoes in the boiling water until they are soft. While the potatoes are cooking, pour the oil in a pan and brown the onions. Add the beef mince, the salt and pepper. Don't over cook the mince.
When the potatoes are cooked, drain them, add the butter, the milk, salt and pepper and mash them.
Put the beef and onions in the bottom of a dish that you can put in the oven, top it wih the cream corn and then with the mashed potatoes.
Sprinkle the parsley flakes on it and put it in the oven for 10 minutes. Broil it for another 5 minutes or until the mashed potatoes have a nice golden crust.
