Minced Beef and Onions is traditional British comfort food, simple and delicious!
With the unseasonably warm weather coming to an abrupt end this week my husband requested this comforting dish which his mother used to make.
In her version she would serve it in a ring of cooked marrow with potatoes and vegetables. This is my take on Minced Beef and Onions which I served in a jacket potato with courgettes (in a nod to the marrow), carrots and broccoli. In Scotland I believe it’s known as Minced Beef and Tatties!
Minced Beef and Onions won’t win any beauty pageants but it’s hot and hearty meal that went down a treat with my family. It’s also a great dish to make a double portion of and freeze for another day. I will be making this a regular for those chilly evenings as an alternative to Spaghetti Bolognese or Chilli con Carne!
