500g minced beef
1 tin chopped tomato
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 clove garlic
splash of worcester sauce
1 oxo cube (beef stock cube)
basil leaves (fresh or dried)
1/2 cup water (or red wine for adults) more if necessary to prevent the sauce from drying out.
I don't use any added salt or sugar as the tinned tomotoes and stock cube have enough for childrens palates.
What to do..........
Put meat into a pot/pan and brown the meat stirring ocassionally for 10 mins
In a blender/food processor wiz the onions, garlic and basil
Add the tinned tomatoes and blend
Pour this mixture on to the browing meat in the pan
Add all other ingredients and simmer for approximately 45 mins.
|not an onion in sight|
Do not let the mixture dry out. Add extra water if required.
This sauce can be made ahead of time and freezes well.
