Another optional ingredient: 1/2 or 1 beef stock cube may be added at the same time as the water if desired (this can enhance the flavour if using cheaper mince or replace the marmite if you aren't a fan). I use both when using cheaper mince. A good quality steak mince shouldn't require any additional flavour.
Draining the mince (especially with cheaper mince) is essential as it removes a lot of the fat content making the dish healthier and it also makes your food taste nicer. You'd be surprised at how many people don't actually do this.
Add fresh chopped chilli if you prefer a slightly hotter dish.
Gorgeous, super simple and so little washing up. I love cajun and this is such a good way to get that flavour. - 12 Sep 2014
