Use lamb, beef or pork for this meat sauce


If you want to bulk cook, you can freeze this meat sauce in an airtight container - in fact, I think its even better once it has had time to "come together" as my Mother in Law would say!



500g kg of fresh lean minced beef
1 onion
1 tbsp olive oil
75g mushrooms
1 Knorr beef stockpot
1 tin of tomato condensed soup
2 tbsp of brown sauce
4 good shakes of Worcestershire sauce


  • You will need a large sauté pan or saucepan for the amount of meat being used.
  • Heat up the pan on a medium heat until hot. Add the oil and heat until hot.
  • Slice and dice the onions and place in the hot oil, reduce the heat to low.
  • Fry for 15 minutes until the onions begin to caramelize.
  • Add the meat, half the quantity at a time, to allow the mince to brown off a little.
  • Mix well with the onions and add salt and black pepper.
  • Melt the Knorr stockpot with 50ml boiling water and then pour over the meat and mix well.
  • Add the brown sauce and the Worcestershire sauce and again, mix well.
  • Stir in the tin of soup, cover the pan with a lid and leave on a low heat to simmer for about 30 minutes.
  • Serve with green beans and creamy mash potato.
