- STEP 1
Place oil in large pan and bring to heat, once hot, add finely chopped onions, carrot, celery and mushrooms (mushrooms can be sliced or chunked, however you prefer).
- STEP 2
Once all veg has sweated off/softened, add beef mince (making sure to break apart with hands for more even cooking), add salt and pepper at this point too.
- STEP 3
Once meat has fully browned off, add tomato pureé & cook for a further 2 minutes. After this add passata & beef stock, stir through, leave to simmer for 15 minutes stirring occasionally (The longer you leave it, the thicker and more flavoursome it will become).
