A lovely slow cooker recipe packed with lots of veg …
500g (1 1/4 lb) extra lean minced beef (I used about 900g)
1 onion, diced (I used two)
2 stalks celery, diced
1 green pepper, diced (I added a red one too !)
2 or 3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (600g) jar passata (I also added a tin of chopped tomatoes)
2 (400g) tins kidney beans, (or mixed beans), liquid reserved from one tin
1 (400g) tin cannellini beans, liquid reserved
1/2 tablespoon chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon dried basil
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
I also added Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, sherry vinegar, chopped fresh coriander, garlic salt and cinnamon (all to taste)
Prep:15min › Cook:8hr › Ready in:8hr15min
Place the mince in a frying pan over medium heat, and cook until evenly brown. Drain fat.
Place the mince in a slow cooker, and mix in remaining ingredients.
Cover, and cook 8 hours on Low.
…. This recipe made enough to fill 4 takeaway tubs (each a generous two portions) to freeze.
