I took out beef mince for dinner tonight, but had no idea what I was going to do with it. Here's what I came up with.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large oven-proof fry pan (I use cast iron), brown the beef until no longer pink, about 8-10 minutes. If the beef is really lean, add a little oil to the pan so it doesn't stick.
  2. Stir in the grated garlic, salt and pepper.
  3. Remove beef with a slotted spoon to a bowl and set aside. Do not drain the pan.
  4. Add the onion and pepper to the pan and saute until onion becomes translucent, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and continue to cook another 5-7 minutes.
  5. In the meantime, mix together the chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, chili pepper, brown sugar and wine.
  6. Return the meat to the pan and mix thoroughly.
  7. Add the tomato mixture and stir to combine.
  8. Lower heat and let simmer for 5-10 minutes. If mixture seems dry, add some more wine.
  9. While mixture is simmering, preheat your oven to 190C/375°F.
  10. Put the pan in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes.
  11. Sprinkle the cheese over top and return to oven for a further 5-10 minutes until cheese melts and starts to turn golden.
  12. Remove from oven and let sit 5 minutes.
  13. Serve over rice.

I made this as directed, using a fresh red (spicy) pepper. We thought it was bland, but this is a good starting point for adding more flavor. I will add another garlic clove next time, will add 1/8-1/4 tsp red pepper flakes and possibly add some cumin. I don't like my food too spicy, but this will kick it up a notch.

YUMMY and SATISFYING. I used garlic salt, white onion, green bell pepper, crushed red chile flakes, brown sugar Splenda, beef bouillion, water, and about 2 tbsp of red wine, 2% cheddar and cooked brown rice mixed in. I did drain the grease and cooked the onion and bell pepper with the beef. I had to pour this into my 13x9 casserole because I didn't have an oven proof pan. This tasted a little like sweet stuffed bell peppers. I think the cheese could be left off as it's hardly noticeable but we did enjoy this with sour cream. Very nice recipe and very adaptable!
