Serves: 4 

  • 1 leek, chopped
  • 1 handful mushrooms (of your choice)
  • 1 cal spray cooking oil
  • 500g less than 5% fat beef mince
  • 600ml (1 pt) beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 (400g) tin chopped tomatoes
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 wholemeal pitta bread

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. In a frying pan, soften the chopped leek and mushrooms in a little 1 cal spray over medium heat.
  2. Meanwhile, in a wok over a medium heat, brown the mince off in enough of the stock to cover it, once browned and nearly all of the stock has gone, add the smoked paprika, garlic, oregano and mix well. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, so it doesn't stick to the pan.
  3. By now the leeks and mushrooms should have softened, add them to the mince along with the chopped tomatoes and the rest of the stock, season with salt and pepper and simmer over a medium heat until dry enough to put into a pitta (not too dry though).
  4. Put the pitta under the grill following the packet instructions. Serve the mince with the grilled pitta. For a complete meal, serve with your choice of salad and/or chips.
