Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 500gms (1 pound) beef or pork mince (grass fed, organic if possible)
  • 2 large carrots finely diced
  • 1 large brown onion finely diced
  • 1 small head of broccoli finely chopped including top part of stem
  • 3 large cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 tsp natural sea salt (I use celtic or pink himalayan) (buy on iherb or amazon)
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper (buy from iherb or amazon)
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric (buy on iherb or amazon)
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • olive oil for frying or fat of choice
Instructions
  1. Dice your vegetables into small even sized pieces
  2. Heat a large frypan with 2 tbsp olive oil to medium high (cook in 2 batches if you don't have a large frypan, or halve the recipe, my pan is about 32cm / 12 in - otherwise it will produce too much juice and you will end up with a boiled dish!)
  3. The heat of the pan should be high enough to evaporate the juices and slightly caramelised the vegetables without burning, I have my electric stove set on 8 out of 9
  4. Add all the vegetables and spices and stir fry for about 10 minutes or until the onions are golden brown
  5. If the pan dries out, add a little more olive oil or fat of choice
  6. once the onions are golden brown and the vegetables are cooked through, add the mince and break the clumps up evenly
  7. Brown the mince evenly and taste, adjust seasoning if needed
  8. Serve on it's own, in lettuce cups or wraps, in cucumber boats
  9. If you don't eat it all at once, divide into portions and store in the fridge for 2 days or freezer for a couple of weeks
  10. It can also be filled up in the thermos for day trips or school lunches for the kids
  11. To save time during the week and make cheap nutritious quick meals, divide into four snap lock bags and freeze for single serve portions, just re-heat in a pan covered and add to your favourite salads
  12. Below are some of my real (cheap) fast food bowls of goodness with this turmeric stir fried mince and and vegetables, I usually have this at least once a week
