Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3-4 small red onions, finely chopped
  • 4-6 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 kg ground lamb or beef* about 2 pounds
  • 2 tsp seven spices or all spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1-1.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • In a large skillet over medium high heat, add the olive oil. Once hot, add the diced onions and cook for 3-4 minutes until softened, stirring continuously.
  • Add the crushed garlic, and cook for a further minute or so, then add the minced lamb.
  • Cook for a minute, breaking apart any clumps of meat with a wooden spoon, then add all the spices (seven spice or all spice, cinnamon, salt and black pepper). Continue cooking, a good 6-8 minutes until lamb is all cooked through and brown with no pink bits remaining. Keep stirring and breaking apart clumps of meat throughought- you can even use a potato masher to break the meat apart a little.
  • If desired, drain any extra fat. Taste the mince and adjust for seasoning.

Notes

*The same technique and ingredients are used for either beef or lamb mince, so use whichever meat you most prefer.
