I do mince in a pan with rice - my mum used to call it risotto, but I don't think it really is. I just brown the mince with garlic, thicken and add herbs and stock, cook for a bit, then add more water and the rice and cook with a lid on till the rice is done. It freezes well to heat up for later.
DH has a curry recipe where you hard boil eggs, peel them, then wrap them up like a scotch egg with mince mixed with finely chopped onion and garlic, then you simmer in a tomato sauce. Needs to be quite a lot of sauce and takes a while to do, but if you like curry you could use any of your favourite sauces to do it.
