Magic Mince

INGREDIENTS

- 500g beef steak mince
- 1 onion
- finely chopped
- 1 carrot
- finely chopped
- 1 stick celery
- finely chopped (optional)
- 1 clove garlic
- chopped
- 250g button mushrooms
- wiped and sliced
- 400g can chopped tomatoes in juice
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 2 cups beef stock
- 4 sprigs thyme
- wholemeal toast bread
- sour cream
- small handful parsley leaves
Serves : 4
Cooking time: 20 min / 45 min

METHOD

Beef

Heat a dash of oil in a heavy-based saucepan over a medium-high heat and add the beef mince. Brown mince, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up the meat, then transfer to a bowl.

Add another dash of oil to the saucepan and add the onion, carrot, celery and garlic and cook until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Return mince to the saucepan.

Add the mushrooms, tomatoes, tomato paste, stock and thyme. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer mince for 45 minutes. Stir mince from time to time and taste for seasoning. Remove lid towards the end of the cooking time if you need to thicken the mince a little.

To serve

Serve magic mince on toast, top with a dollop of sour cream and parsley. See tips for more serving suggestions.
