  • I added seveal other
    Submitted by soulful on 21. July 2016 - 16:09.

    I added seveal other vegetables to make this dish veggie nutrish and added half of the water after reading the reviews.  My teenager and husband loved it but my toddler turned her nose at it.  I had heaps of mixture left over and I made pies (using a puff pastry recipe) with the left over mixture for lunch boxes.  Hubby and teen asked for this dish again.  Thank you for posting your recipe.

    This recipe is great! It's the first time I've cooked mince in the thermo as I was dubious about the texture/taste, but it turned out awesome. 

    I also refuced the the water to 150g, did 3 tablespoons of tomato paste, added diced carrot, celery, peas and corn. Will definitely be making again.

    This is delicious! I reduced the water and used 150g. for my own note, I used corn, peas, mushrooms and 2 tablespoons of tomato paste. Thanks for sharing this amazing recipe! Another note is to make double as this batch didn't last! Lol

    I adored this recipe. Its definately a great way to experiement with the TM (I am a reletively new user) so was able to try the mash potatoe recipe as well which was sublime. I read the comments and halved the water, I doubled the amount of tomatoe paste, added peas as well as used 1tsp parsley, 1tsp thyme and 1tsp of rosemary. I also added some cheese on top and baked until golden. The first night was delicious but the second was even better as the rest of the juice had soaked in. I can't reccomend enough !

    Submitted by missfabulousjess on 27. April 2014 - 16:02.

    Yum yum pigs bum! The man and the two kiddies (aged 11 months and 2.5 years) loved it (they're fussy little things too - so major win there!). It was a little bit runny, but still great. I made a few small changes:

    - I used sweet potato mash instead of normal potatoes (I had an abundance to use up)

    - I cooked the mince in the varoma instead of directly in the bowl to keep it from breaking up too much. In saying that, I forgot to add extra water so it burnt the bottom of my bowl a little... two washes later and it's back gleaming like new.

    - I served with pea puree at the request of the husband-to-be

    I would definitely recommend this dish to others.

    This is a great recipe and topped with the EDC mashed potato is an absolute winner. I reduced the water down to 250g and cooked it with the steamer basket ontop, not measuring cup, and the consistency was perfect. I also added some zucchini, carrot and peas to it, and I would recommend that to sneak in some extra veges. Will be making this one again.

    Submitted by JacquieVC on 14. April 2013 - 19:08.

    I added peas/corn/zucchini to this and as the supermarket didn't have the mince I wanted and I didn't have the time, I cut my meat into small pieces. Added Sweet potato to the mash. I also reduced water to 200ml and added 1.5tbs cornflour with 30 seconds to go.

    Yummo. Even the fussiest thought it tasted ok [even with the mushrooms] next time will reduce the liquid more and loved the meat a little chunky so will do that again. tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by Rachael Barbara on 28. September 2012 - 19:57.

    My family loved this meal. I did tweak it slightly .......i left out the mushrooms and replaced with a carrot, 1 zucchini and a few fresh tomatoes, skins removed. As per other comments, I reduced to water quantity by 100g and added a table spoon of corn flour to thicken, once the meat had cooked. I also added some additional herbs, tbsp fresh rosemary and thymeplus sea salt to taste. With 10 mins left to cook I added 3/4 cup of frozen peas (need to get as many veggies into the kids!!!). Finally since I didn't have any potatoes (shame on me!) I served it on a bed of brown rice with grated Parmesan on top) . Thanks for this great base recipe, I'll be adding this to my favorites!!

    Great flavours, so easy & whole family loved it!! Definitely decrease water by 100ml (thanks for tip everyone) or even more depending if you add extra  ingredients (I added some zucchini & tomatoes I wanted to use up, these added to the water content, so I had to reduce further at the end & thicken with a little gravy flour). Definitely making again!! tmrc_emoticons.)

    I made this for dinner last night. The flavour was beautiful (and all demolished by the family) but the meat mixture was too 'wet' for a pie. Would suggest backing off the water by 100g or so.
