2 Tbsp oil
2 medium onions, chopped
2 medium carrots, grated or chopped
500g beef mince
2 x 400g can chopped tomatoes
½ cup water
Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Gently cook the onion until soft. Add the mince and brown, drain off any extra fat. Add the carrot to the mince and stir well. Add the chopped tomatoes and water. Cook gently until the sauce has thickened; about 1 hour.
Add a splash of vinegar, some crushed garlic, fresh or dried herbs to add more flavour. To make this recipe go further for a little extra cost you can add some dried lentils. To do this, add ½ cup lentils and ½ cup of water. The lentils will soak up the water.
