  • 500 grams/1 pound of lean beef mince
  • 1 medium brown onion
  • 1 tablespoon Crushed garlic

  • In a large saucepan on medium to high heat, add the onion and garlic and cook until translucent.
  • Add the mince to the saucepan, breaking up any lumps with a spatula, and stirring until it is browned.
  • Add the tomato paste, passata, stock/broth, curry powder, soy sauce and salt. Stir to mix in and cook on medium for 2 minutes.
  • Add the frozen mixed veges and cook for another 5 minutes on medium.
  • Keep uncovered and let simmer on low for 15 minutes to let the flavours develop and become richer.
  • Stir with a spoon and remove from stovetop. Serve with hot buttered toast, mashed potato, brown rice, or cous cous.


  1. Calories are for the Savoury Mince Curry only, based on 3 servings. If you have it with toast, potato, rice or cous cous, the calories would be higher.
  2. This recipe freezes really well. I often make this ahead, especially in the cooler months and store it in portion sized containers in the freezer.
