Serve simply spiced beef mince flavoured with tomato in soft floury baps with shredded lettuce and a tomato salad on the side. It's a super-fast meal tailor-made for a busy family that often eats at different times. Delicious!
Chilli con carne: For a classic chilli, fry the minced beef with the onion, as the basic recipe, and 1 crushed garlic clove, 2 tsp chilli powder and 1 tsp ground cumin. Simmer with the flavoured stock plus a 400g can chopped tomatoes or chunky passata at step 2, then stir in a 400g can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed. Heat through for 5 minutes. Season. Serve over rice with soured cream and grated cheese.
Cooked mince is suitable for freezing. Cool quickly and transfer to a freezerproof container. Freeze for up to one month. To use, thaw overnight in the fridge. Reheat and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
