I've some beef mince that needs using up. I'm stuck in a rut and sick of it frankly.
I usually make the usual suspects, shepherds pie, Bolognese, chilli, a keema type curry, meatball, kofta, burgers...
Is there anything else at all I can make with it. Anyone out there doing something fab with it ??!!
Put it on a pizza
Use it for stuffing vegetables www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/fried-stuffed-cucumbers
Why not chuck the mince in the freezer and have something different for dinner?
Fry mince onion mushroom courgette peppers....any vegetables. ...pour on stock....add tomato puree garlic chilli curry paste or powder. Add rice and simmer until fluid is all absorbed.
I’d make pasties because I bloody love them.
Loving the sound of all these!! Thank you
My lot like it dry fried in lots of spices and used as Make It Yerself wrap filling with a few salady bits and creme fraiche.
Or make some chilli but then put on a baking tray. Cover with plain tortilla chips and a generous quantity of grated cheese. Grill til the cheese is bubbly and serve with sour cream. Very naughty but delicious!
Savoury beef mince is lovely - serve with mash or in a Yorkshire pudding.
You can add any veg and/or pulses really.
I also make it more gravy-like by adding oxo etc. and decreasing the passata andcIncook it for longer too.
