Large Saucepan
Garlic Press


Get Started

a) Boil a full kettle.

b) Pour the boiled water into a large saucepan with 1/4 tsp salt on high heat. Add the rice and cook for 10-12 mins.

c) Drain in a sieve and pop back in the pan. Cover with a lid and leave to the side until ready to serve.

Get Frying

a) Meanwhile, halve the green pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips, then chop into roughly 1cm pieces.

b) Heat a large frying pan on medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. 

c) Once hot, add the beef mince, Central American style spice mix and sliced pepper. Fry until the mince has browned, 5-6 mins. Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince. 

Finish the Prep

a) While the mince cooks, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

b) Grate the Cheddar cheese.

c) Once the mince has browned, drain and discard any excess fat. Season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Stew Time

a) Add the garlic to the mince and cook for 1 min more. 

b) Stir through the passata, chicken stock paste, sugar and water for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts). 

c) Simmer until the sauce has thickened slightly, 3-4 mins.

Flavour Town

a) Stir the BBQ sauce through the mince and cook until thickened and warmed through, 1-2 mins. 

b) Taste and season with salt and pepper if you feel it needs it. Add a splash of water if it's a little too thick.

c) Fluff up the rice with a fork.

Serve Up

a) When everything's ready then share the rice between your serving bowls.

b) Top with the BBQ beef stew. 

c) Scatter over the cheese to finish.
