Method

  1. Heat a large non-stick pan, add the beef then fry over a medium-high heat until browned, stirring often and breaking up any lumps with a spoon. Crumble in the stock cube and mix well.

  2. Add the vegetables, stir to mix with the beef and pour in enough boiling water (about 1.3 litres) to cover. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and stir well. Cover the pan and simmer gently for about 30 mins or until the vegetables are tender.

  3. Tip in the baked beans, sprinkle with Worcestershire sauce or Tabasco to taste, stir well and heat through. Taste for seasoning and sprinkle with parsley. Serve with extra Worcestershire sauce or Tabasco, for those who like a peppery hot taste.

Love this dinner and so easy to make! it does seem to make a vast quantity, I can only just put the lid on the casserole dish! Have tried this in the slow cooker, today I am putting it on a low heat in the oven.

Really enjoyed this recipe, as did the rest of the family! I'd probably use a little less water next time but either way it was very nice and I'll definitely be cooking it again

made this for tea last night and it was lovely however i also found it had too much liquid but i only used one pack of mince, perhaps using more would have reduced the liquid? i just mashed a couple of potatoes in which thickened it, children loved it!

This is one of my favorite mid week meals. My kids love it and wolf it down every time! It also freezes really well. A winner!

This is a great meal which is very easy, very cheap and turns out really tasty. I followed the recipe but simply cut the amounts down to make less (but tried to keep the ratios roughly the same). I used worcestershire sauce for mine and also added a few gravy granules and plenty of seasoning to make it extra yummy. Served it with bread rolls warm from the oven and it went down a treat. Far tastier than I expected!
