  • 2 Sweet Red Peppers
  • 3-20 red or green chillies
  • 2 large onions
  • 1 whole head of garlic
  • 1 1/2 lbs (680 grams) of chuck steak or mince

    1. Roast the peppers, chillies, onions and garlic head in a hot oven (200C fan). Remove each when tender inside & slightly charred on the outside.
    2. Peel the roasted vegetables. Puree them and then fry in plenty of olive oil until the paste is dark brown and the oil separates from it
    3. Separately brown the meat in oil with the sugar so that it caramelises.
