- 1 large brown onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 750 g beef mince
- 1 tsp hot chilli powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon powder
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
- 1 good beef stock cube
- 400 g tinned tomatoes
- 400 g tin red kidney beans with chilli sauce
- 1 tsp coriander powder
Sweat The Onion And Garlic
Peel and dice the onion and garlic. Pour the oil into a large saucepan over a medium heat and add the onion and garlic. Sweat for 10 minutes.
Add The Beef
Add the beef mince in large-ish chunks, turn the heat up high and brown the outside for 5 minutes (gives different textures of mince).
Stir in spices and carry on cooking for 5 minutes
Add stock cube, tomatoes, kidney beans plus anything else you want from a selection of flavoursome things I often use tomato puree, tomato ketchup, brown sauce, red wine, beer or worcestershire sauce.
Bring to the boil for 5 minutes.
Put a lid on the pan and turn hob down to the lowest setting - leave for 1 hour, stirring every few minutes.
After 1 hour, take lid off and leave to cook for another hour, or until thick, very gloopy texture is achieved.
You could use a heat diffuser to keep cooking temperature as low as possible.
Serve with boiled rice or cornbread and sour cream.
