Three ways with mince

Sweet and Sticky Meatloaf
Herby Pork Sausage Ragu with Spaghetti
Beef and Beetroot Burgers

Sweet and Sticky Meatloaf

Listen, don’t knock this one. It’s an oldie but a goodie and with this crazy sauce – mmm mm. Another one that’s great for dinner, but also sliced and in a sandwich for lunch. Or my favourite, a slab with a lovely light, green salad – think sliced kale, lettuce, spinach with some beautiful beetroot tips.

Preheat oven 180 c.

Grease and line 2 medium sized loaf tins.

THE LOAF : pop all ingredients in a bowl and combine really well.  You want to be able to taste every ingredient in your loaf with every bite.   Divide evenly between your two tins.  Cover with foil and bake for 40 mins.  Remove from oven and pour off any nasty juices.

THE SAUCE : dissolve all ingredients together in a saucepan and cook for about 5 minutes.  Set aside till ready to serve.

Pour half the sauce over the loaves and return to the oven and cook for a further 20 minutes, this time uncovered.

SERVE :  with lashings of garlic mash, fresh steamed veggies and the leftover sauce.

JAX SAYS : Its really easy to make garlic mash, remove the skin and just pop one fat clove of garlic in with your potatoes, cook as usual, drain, mash (with butter & a little milk), season and serve.

Herby Pork Sausage Ragu with Spaghetti

If you only have a few pork sausages in the fridge and you want to make something a little different, try this sauce with spaghetti. The kids will love it and it’s a lovely way to add a new dish to your weekly menu.

Drizzle your oil into a large frying pan.

Take your sausages and gently push the meat out of the skins, into bite sized meatballs.  Drop them straight into the oil.  Using a fork flatten them, then fry until crispy and brown – chuck the skins.

Turn the heat down add the flavoured butter, herbs and chilli.  Cook for 2 – 3 minutes, then pour in the tomatoes.  Add the Worcester sauce. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Simmer for 15 minutes or until the sauce is thicker.

Cook the pasta as per the packet.  Before you drain it, add ½ cup of the water to your sauce, mix well.

Once drained mix through the sauce.

SERVE : Garnish with parmesan (or cheese) and chopped herbs – basil, parsley or thyme is fantastic with this dish.

Jax Says : Any sausages will do, especially the ones that already have added flavour with extra herbs, wine or mustard.

Ingredients

  • 500g mince
  • 1 small beetroot, peeled & grated
  • 1 tbsp flavoured butter
  • 1 tbsp jar of spice
  • 1 tsp chicken stock powder
  • 1 cup tasty cheese, grated
  • Handful fresh herbs, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce
  • Salt and pepper
Serves: 4

Beef and Beetroot Burgers

Being able to access freshly grown produce at He Waka Tapu is fabulous. Eating seasonal is healthy, nutritious and affordable. Here I’ve combined the kiwi favourite way to eat a burger with those little red boulders – beetroot.

Combine all the burger ingredients together in a large bowl.

Using a cookie cutter or just with your hand, shape into burgers.

If you’re frying, heat the oil in pan until very hot.  Gently slide your burgers in, cook until golden on either side.  Remove, rest and eat

These can also be BBQ’d or roasted in the oven, entirely up to you.

Serve : Building a burger is a wonderful way to get greens into the littlies.  Sliced cheese is always good, but coleslaw with added chopped greens gives fabulous texture.

Jax Says : This recipe can be double, tripled up.  Also if mince is on special, grab a couple of packets, make the burger mixture.  Shape the burgers and free form freeze them.  Once frozen, chuck in a bag and use as you need them. Fabulous for camping.
