Depending on the recipe, mince is more often than not cooked with other ingredients to infuse and bring out the beef flavour. Whether it be tacos, patties, lasagne or cottage pie, mince will open up the door to endless options.
Browning mince is essential to bring out the flavour and colour. To ensure it doesn’t stew, cook in batches. Add a dash of oil to a hot pan before adding mince. Stir to ensure the mince browns evenly and does not stick to the pan. If it begins to stew and water gathers at the bottom of the pan, the mince will taste like it has been boiled. Take the mince from the heat and strain away the liquid. Reheat the pan with a further dash of oil and return the drained mince to the pan to begin the browning process again. Your final dish will have more flavour and colour.
