  • Leave to the side for 8-10 mins.
Fry Mince
  • Meanwhile, heat a frying pan on medium-high heat (no oil).
  • Once hot, fry the beef mince and roasted spice and herb blend, 5-6 mins.
  • Break up the mince as it cooks, then drain the fat. Season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook so there's no pink in the middle.
  • Meanwhile, open the remaining sachets.
