Ground beef mince must be one of the most versatile ingredients there is. Beef mince is a great source of protein, with only 332 calories per 100gr. Choose grass fed or veldt reared beef mince for extra nutrition that’s higher in omega fats, CLA and vitamin E. Being freezer friendly, your beef mince can be portion frozen and easily defrosted once it is time for dinner. Here is my favourite ways with mince, that will transform your weekly dinner plan (and most of these makes for the perfect leftover lunch).
One of my favourite ways to use ground beef is by making meatballs. These recipes are great to have on your weekly meal plan.
Savoury or curry mince is great to have on hand when you are pressed for time in the kitchen. You can make a big batch of it on your meal prep days, and freeze in small portions for easy access when you are in a rush. Oh, and the options are limitless from Jaffels, Pies and a simple Mince and Pasta Bake.
The most popular recipe on the blog is my South African Curry and Rice recipe – a firm favourite here in the south, this recipe was passed down by my mother in law and promises comfort food in no time. Tip: you can freeze portions of my Curry and Rice for up to two months! Also try this classic Bobotie recipe – perfect for cooler winter days.
Of course, you can’t go wrong with a couple of homemade beef burgers for dinner, or even for a get together with a rowdy crowd over a weekend. Chill those beers and enjoy these variations from my Best Beef Burgers.
