Savoury Mince and Potatoes.

I am a big fan of mince based foods and today I tried something a little different to my usual spaghetti bolognese or lasagna. This dish is full of goodness and you can alter the side vegetables in this dish to suit your taste buds.



  • Beef Mince 200-300g
  • 1 Tbsp of Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • 1 Yellow Onion – Thinly Sliced
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic – Thinly sliced or Minced
  • 1 Cup of Frozen Spinach – You can use fresh too.
  • 1 Cube of Beef stock
  • 1 Cup of Warm Water
  • 3 Tsp of Plain Flour


  • 3 Medium sized white potatoes (cubed)
  • 1 Tsp of Paprika
  • 1/2 Tsp of cumin
  • 1 Tsp of Garlic powder
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste



  • Heat the oil in a pot on a medium high heat
  • Saute the onions until they turn light brown in colour
  • Add the mince and cook until brown
  • Season the mince and then add your spinach
  • In your cup of water add the beef stock cube and add this mixture to the pot.
  • Let the mince simmer for 2 minutes and then reduced the heat to low.
  • add the flour and stir – making sure you have no clumps of flour.
  • the consistency of the dish should be similar to a stew.


  • Boil water in a medium sized pot and add the potatoes
  • let this boil for 15 minutes until just cooked.
  • Once the potatoes are boiled – drain the water and return back to the pot.
  • Now add the paprika, garlic powder, cumin, salt and a tsp of oil to your potatoes and mix well.
  • spread the potato cubes on a baking tray and bake in the oven at 200 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Add steamed broccoli, cauliflower and whatever else you like. the more vegetables the better.
