    Quick and easy meal. I used 800 grams of mince beef, a couple of onions and a bag of frozen veg. I didn't include potatoes as I served with buttery new potatoes. Brown mince, use fat to brown onion, stick in a pot with a bag of frozen veg. Followed stock suggested and seasoned as I went along. Cheap, quick and delicious.  -  11 Apr 2015
