Phil loves mince and especially mince on toast.
1 tablespoon of oil
500grams of minced beef
1 medium onion, finely diced
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon of soya sauce
salt and pepper
a beef stock cube
frozen peas and corn or frozen mixed vegetables
flour and water for thickening

Brown the onion and garlic in the oil, in a fairly big pot.  Tip in the minced beef and stir it occasionally until the mince is no longer pink.  Pour in enough water to cover the mince and add the soya sauce.  Bring the mince to the boil and let simmer for around 25 minutes or until the meat is tender.  Add the stock cube and then season to taste with the salt and pepper.  Add the frozen vegetables.  Mix 1 tablespoon of flour with a cup of water and quickly stir this into the mince to thicken it.  Mix up more thickening if needed.  Cook the mince for a further 5 minutes.

This is a great meal served with mashed potatoes and vegetables and then it makes a great filling the next day in toasted sandwiches or as mince on toast.
