As with the rest of the recipes on this blog, this mince is absolutely simple and totally delicious 🙂 You can serve it with anything really from with bread at breakfast or with mashed potato, spaghetti or any pasta for that matter and rice even. I used this in the baked butternut cups recipe, it was yum and everybody loved it.
- Have your ingredients ready. Heat oil in pan/ pot. Season mince (500 g) with salt (3/4 tsp) and basil (1 1/2 tsp) and add it together with the garlic (3 cloves, minced) to the pan. Fry until the mince begins to brown. Add onions (1 small, chopped) and fry for about 2 minutes. Add fresh tomatoes (1 small, chopped) and green pepper (1/4 large, chopped).
- Stir and cook for about 3 minutes. De-glaze the pan as you go if need be with a little water or red wine. Add the tinned tomatoes (1 can) and stir. Cover pan/ pot and let this simmer for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, add sugar (2 tbsp) and soy sauce (1 tsp), stir again and do the final gentle simmer for another 5 minutes with the pan/pot covered. Taste for seasoning and adjust accordingly. And you’re done, enjoy!
