SPICY MINCED BEEF (feeds 3)
400g minced beef
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 tsp grated ginger
1.5 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground cinnamon
half a tsp ground coriander
half a tsp ground turmeric
half a tsp chilli flakes
1 beef oxo cube (or any beef stock cube)
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 tbsp tomato ketchup
1. Fry off the mince until browned, then remove all the fat (and give it to the dog, if you've got one!). Add the onion, garlic and ginger and continue to fry until the underside of the mince layer has caramelised then turn and fry again. Do this for some 3-4 turns, until a good quantity of caramelised meat is evident.
2. Add the cumin, cinnamon, coriander, turmeric, chilli flakes, oxo cube (crumbled), tomato puree, tomato ketchup & pepper, stir to combine, then add sufficient water to cover the meat and stir well to combine.
3. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 25-30 mins to reduce and let the flavours mingle.
