Savoury Mince

Rich, cosy and comforting, this old-fashioned savoury mince is Aussie comfort food at its finest!

Due to its utter simplicity, savoury mince is a staple in households around Australia and a much loved, last-minute dinnertime saviour.

Made the old-fashioned way with beef mince, Worcestershire sauce, and vegetables, simmered in a thick and rich sauce, it is completely customisable to suit the ingredients you have in your fridge and pantry.

Serves 4


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 brown onion, diced

  • 1 carrot, peeled & diced

  • 2 celery stalks, diced

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 500g beef mince

  • 1 tablespoon plain flour

  • 1 potato, peeled & diced

  • 1.5 cups beef stock

  • 2 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce

  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste

  • ¼ cup frozen peas


  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan, then add onion, celery and carrot and sauté for 5 minutes, or until softened. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.

  2. Add beef mince / ground beef and cook, breaking up with a spatula or wooden spoon, for 8-10 minutes until browned.

  3. Add flour and stir through, then add in potato, beef stock, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste and season with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Bring to boil, then reduce to a simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes or until potato has cooked and sauce is thickened. If the liquid evaporates too quickly before the potato cooks through, add a little more stock to the saucepan.

  4. Stir in peas and cook for 2-3 minutes until tender. Serve on top of toast, rice or a baked potato.
