Minced beef is a fridge and freezer staple. It’s a relatively inexpensive protein and there are so many ways that you can make it the star of the show for a delicious family dinner. Here are some of our favourite minced (ground) beef recipes.

There’s something undeniably comforting about a hearty minced beef dish isn’t there? Whether it’s the sizzle of a perfectly seasoned burger on the grill, the aromatic blend of herbs and spices in a simmering pot of chilli, or the deliciously juicy meatballs bathed in a savoury sauce.

Be sure to look out for Chris’s Chilli Con Carne – it’s amazing and always on our recipe rotation.

So, let’s get cooking!
