Serve with polenta, as a base for shepherd’s pie, in baked potatoes or on its own! A great way to get veggies into the kids, my son loves this!

Ingredients (serves 3)

  • 500g Lean beef Mince
  • 1 small Onion, diced
  • 2 small Carrots, grated
  • 1 medium Zucchini, grated
  • 1/2 cup Tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 - 2 tsp Beef stock powder
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup Chutney
  • 4 - 5 TBS Water
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup Frozen peas and corn
  • Dried parsley
  • Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Garlic (to taste)


  1. Fry the onion and garlic in oil, and once its softened, add in the mince. Break it up as its cooking.
  2. Sprinkle stock powder over the mince mixture, and add in the water bit by bit, stirring in-between. You want it moist but not really watery
  3. Once the mince has separated and cooked, add in all other ingredients to taste. Mix well, then allow to simmer until it becomes thick and flavoursome
  4. Serve!

  • There are a lot of great recipes here. Mince is so versatile, you can just use your imagination and create some delicious meals


  • Thanx for sharing your recipe Mum2archer


  • Yummm!!! I think my toddler would really like this. I’ll have to go out and get some mince so I can make it for her with potato as she’s not a fan of polenta.


  • I like the idea of baked potatoes with it!


  • Great recipe for little ones.


  • This looks great and I really like the idea of serving it with polenta.

  • Think I’ll have this tonight. Thank you I love savoury mince, so filling and comforting on a cold night.


  • We love savoury mince hubby calls it train smash. We use up whatever is in the fridge and generally have it on toast!

  • I love bulking recipes up with vegetables! It’s healthy and I use up any veggies I have to prevent wastage!


  • Sounds so good. Anything to get the kids to eat some veggies.


  • Interesting. Sounda like bolonage sause with twist.


  • I love the idea of using as a shepherd pie base. Also never had it with polenta before. I wonder if I could make shepherds pie and top with polenta instead of potatoe? Hmmmmm


  • I hope this might get my son to eat some veggies!
