Savoury Lamb Mince (With Pomegranate Molasses)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by JustJanS

Our son gave us a bottle of pomegranate molasses. I found this recipe while looking for ways to use it. It is really tasty, but a bit on the dry side. We used the baba ganouj as a sauce, and that worked really well.

Good flavour but definitely too dry and I used much more oil. I used a combo of mainly canola oil and about 2 tbs unrefined extra virgin olive oil. I used extra lean ground beef which I use often but not alone. What helped make it less dry tasting is that I served the meat mixed through buttered white Basmati rice with a little chopped plumb canned tomato cooked in. I used sea salt and followed the rest exactly. I served it with Balkan (thick) yogurt.
