Andy’s Savoury Mince

A Wednesday Night Special J
U need
500g minced beef
¼ cabbage, sliced
Small can of corn kernels, drained
1 tomato, chopped
1 small brown onion, chopped finely
1 clove garlic minced or crushed, doesn’t matter
½ cup of freshly grated carrot
½ cup of frozen green peas (the minted peas would work as well)
Little bit of salt
Little bit of pepper
A bit of my ‘old mate
2-3 tbsp morrocan, or African seasoning (I used a Herbies chermoula mix, but master foods make ok seasonings, u want a fair bit of it, so don‘t be shy!)
½ cup water
About 0.5 of an hour to prepare!
Fry onion in old mate (olive oil) until clear
Add mince, and brown
Add garlic
Add seasonings
Add cabbage, corn kernels, and tomato with the water
Cover and Cook ½ an hour until cabbage soft, then stir thru peas and carrot. Keep warm (off the heat) while u prepare the accompaniments: rice, or mashed sweet potato* would be best, and a side salad of sliced cucumber and sliced tomato
Eaten with a 2003 Penfolds Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz, meaty, complex, little bit of white pepper and other spices, lashings of oak and blueberry fruit intertwined
* add a little bit of ground cumin to the sweet potato when u mash it
