This wonderfully cheap and tasty dish couldn't be easier to make and is the perfect classic dish to have for dinner. Comprised of Onions, Mince, beans and some tomatoes it is perfect to throw on the gas and leave for 40 mins whist you do more important things.
I have decided to be generous with the garlic in this dish as i enjoy strong flavours, but if you want to go slightly easier with the garlic and be able to see breath with your mouth in the elevator you can add in less. Additionally i have used Dark chocolate, this item is option but i would really recommend it purely for the wonderful balance it adds to the dish.
To make this dish spicier i would recommend adding in, Cayenne pepper and a little more chili powder.
2 large onion
1 1/2 Peppers any colour
5 garlic cloves, peeled
1 tsp hot Chilli powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
500g minced beef
1 Chicken stock cube
400g can chopped tomatoes
1 tsp dried Mixed Herbs
410g can red kidney beans
100g of Dark Chocolate Salt and pepper
plain boiled rice, to serve
soured cream, to serve
The first step is to have all the Vegetables prepped and ready to go in the pan, so finely dice the Garlic, onions and Peppers. Don't worry about mixing them up in the bowl, all of these items are going to be sauteed in a small amount of oil at the next stage.
Picture 1. Finely dice up the Garlic, you want it to be almost puree consistency.
Picture 2. Finely dice up the Onions, this doesn't need to be as fine as the garlic but you should ensure that they are all roughly the same size.
Picture 3. Lastly dice up the bell pepper, I show you how i cut this in the video, but i will go over it quickly. Firstly i take off the four walls of the pepper, flatten them then cut them in to strips, then simply cut the other way so i have them diced.
