Savoury Mince

Hi all, Amanda from Simple Home Cook here. Winter is a great time to bring out the hot dishes but this recipe is great in both summer and winter. Savoury mince is such a versatile recipe and you can add any vegetables you like. I personally like cabbage, carrot and broccoli but you can adjust and use whatever is in your fridge at the time.  

My 3 children love this recipe but they like it drizzled with tomato sauce (ewww….) but whatever makes them eat a big bowl of meat and veges is fine with me.
