a) Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on high heat.
b) Once the oil is hot, add the beef mince, pepper and onion. Fry until the beef is browned and the veg is tender, 5-6 mins. Use a spoon to break up the mince as it cooks, then drain and discard any excess fat. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince. The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
c) Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 min more.
