Meat sauce and a guest post

Meat sauce is one of the things that I make in bulk. There are three things I cook in bulk, thats tomato sauce, muguriha or dhal curry, and meat sauce. Tomato sauce becuase MAF loves pasta with tomato sauce, muguriha freezes well and is always there when I have busy morning like laundry mornings andfor days when I dont feel like cooking. Meat sauce is a great sauce , It can be used as bolognese sauce for pasta, in cottage pie, lasagne, even stired into rice. Just freeze in batches and thaw in the fridge overnight and cook till boiling hot.

500g minced beef
1 onion , finely chopped
1 clove garlic , chopped
1 carrot , grated
400 g can peeled tomatoes , crushed
2 tbsp tomato paste or puree
1 cup stock or water
Dried oreganum about 1 tsp or dried herbs , use fresh if you have
Finely chopped parsley
Olive oil

1.Heat olive oil, add onions and saute’ till soft . Add garlic carrots and minced meat saute’ for few minutes .

2.Add your crushed tomatoes, herbs, I like to add a little chilli or paprika to spice it up a little when making for grown ups.

3.Pour the stock, and cook till nice and thick.

4.Season with salt and pepper. Stir in parsley .
