Cheesy Mince Recipe
This recipe is from BBC Easy Cook Magazine (BBCEC).
Serves 4 | Prep 10 mins | Cook 35 mins
1 onion, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 carrot, diced
1 celery stick, diced
2 tbsp olive oil
450g minced lamb
2 tbsp sundried tomato paste
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
300ml beef stock
2 tsp cornflour
(1) Fry the onion, garlic, carrot and celery in the oil for 6 minutes. Stir in the lamb and cook for 4 minutes until browned, then add the tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce. (BBCEC)
Nice and easy. Chop everything, chuck it in a big pan. Double it all up and freeze the extra for an easy meal in the future. I actually use beef mince as I can’t get hold of lamb mince here in Spain without buying an expensive leg and getting the butcher to mince it for me!
(2) Stir in the beef stock and simmer for 35 minutes until very tender. Season well. Mix the cornflour with 2tsp cold water to a paste, stir into the mince and cook for 1 minute. (BBCEC)
I just use an Oxo cube to make my beef stock. I have also never needed the cornflour to thicken the sauce as it always been perfect after the simmering.
(3) Serve with a jacket potato, topped with grated cheddar cheese. (BBCEC)
