    Default Failsafe Savoury Mince Recipes?

    Well, the money saving has started!

    I have a few kilos of mince left, and DP recently discovered savoury mince and rice at his sisters place.

    I've never cooked it before....

    How do you do it?

    Don't know if you like them or now but you can get one of those maggi sachets in savoury mince!!!

    My mum makes it and it is beautiful she does it similar to this:
    mince
    beef stock (liquid kind)
    onion
    carrott
    celery
    parsnip
    peas (or whatever veg you like)
    I know she also adds a little sugar to taste
    salt & pepper and I think that's about it

    The earlier you cook it and let the flavours settle through the better it will be.

    Good luck hope this helps

    I have a real cheats way of making it but the kids absolutely love it.

    Brown mince and then add 2 large cans of the Heinz Beef & Vegetable soup(the chunky one), add a good squeeze of tomato sauce and that is it!! Let it simmer for about 20 mins stirring every now and then and serve...

    Yes, just brown your mince, add your selection of veges, then add some gravy (Gravox is fine) and cook it down for a few mnutes. Simple and yum!

    i brown the mince, chuck in all the vegies (what ever you feel like)
    and then just add some curry powder, woschestier sance (sp).
    Cook the mince until its quite "dry" meaning its not mean to be saucy like say spag bog

    Put it on some toast and top with some tomato sauce.

    I think that there is as many recipes for savory mince as there is cooks!

    1 large onion chopped
    1 clove garlic chopped
    500g mince
    2 tbsp oil
    2 tbsp flour
    1 packet spring veg soup
    1/2 cup water
    a good gloop of tomato sauce
    plenty of fresh ground black pepper
    peas and corn and carrots

    Brown off onions and mince in oil. Add garlic and flour and fry for 2 mins.
    Add soup, tomato sauce, pepper.
    Simmer as long as you think it needs, 15-20 mins minimum.
    Add veg 5-10 mins before serving.

    If you taste it and it's a bit bland, I usually get into the store cupboard and add sauce of whatever kind I have. Tomato, worcestershire, bbq, soy, oyster, tabasco etc. I've been known to chuck in a tin of tomatoes, chicken stock powder or even anchovies!

    My mince is seldom the same twice!

    Even if I do say so myself I think I make the best savoury mince!
    And it is so easy...

    OK,

    One pack of mince - about 500-600 grams

    1 onion

    2 cups (about) frozen mixed veg cooked in micro as per pack directions(or if I have more time I chop up carrot and celery, and cook in water on the stove till tender.)

    3-4 dessert spoons Traditional Gravox in about 2 1/2 cups cold water

    big squirt of tomato sauce

    Brown mince and onion add vegies, put gravox in the cold water and add to the pan with mince and veg, add squirt of tom sauce, cook on medium heat stirring until gravy thickens and you have a yummy thick savoury mince.

    For the best Shep pie...

    Put into a baking dish or tin, cook the potatoes, mash with a little butter and milk till nice and creamy (as per normal mash potatoe) put the potato on top of the mince, sprinkle with grated cheese and grill... or If you make it in advance and it has cooled, put it in thew oven on about 180 till cooked on top and warmed through.

    I made on of these for my neighbours last week as the mum was sick and they absolutely loved it too.. Good luck, Sorry the measurements aren't too exact I have been making it like this since I was living at home so just do it automatically...
