READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Snowbunny Andorra

This is a recipe that my Mum used to make when we were kids. Lovely in the winter or when you're feeling under the weather. Serve it with baked potatoes or mash for a real comfort dinner.

Another good recipe! Very similar to a dish called savoury mince here in Australia. My family enjoyed this very much. I only made a 1/2 recipe & was plenty to go around. I served on top of a big bowlful of steamed veg...really good! 2nd of 3 recipes reviewed for PAC 2010

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. With a food processor with the grater attachment, grate the carrots, swede and onions.
  2. Put everything except the bay leaves and water into a large pan and heat, stirring, until the meat is browned.
  3. Add a teaspoon of salt, a sprinkle of black pepper, the bay leaves and enough water to stop it sticking to the pan (depends on how much water is in the beef).
  4. Simmer for 45 minutes, checking occasionally that it is not sticking, and topping up with water if necessary.
  5. Taste and adjust seasoning as required.
