Sloppy Joe Bake

I made this dish, what seems like an age ago. It was delicious and I would be more than happy to use the chilli mince in place of my usual chilli con carne recipe. I loved the garlic bread on top - who doesn't like garlic bread!

500g pack lean minced beef
2 Onions, roughly chopped
2 tsp oil
2 tsp ground cumin
1-2 tsp mild chilli powder , depending on whether you like it spicy
400g can chopped tomatoes
600ml beef stock
1 garlic baguette, split into slices

Step 1: Brown the mince in a non-stick pan for a few mins, then tip into a bowl. Whizz the onions in a food processor until finely chopped (or roughly grate if you don't have one). Tip into the pan with the oil, then cook for 2-3 mins until soft. Add the spices, cook for 1 min. Return the mince to the pan with the tomatoes and stock, then bring to a boil. Simmer for 20 mins.
Step 2: Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 and spoon the mince into an ovenproof dish. Arrange the baguette slices over the mince, then bake for 12 mins until the bread is crisp on top.

  4. Hi Beth, nice to have you back. But hell, if you're on your hols, don't worry about posting, just get on with life. :-)

    I am really liking the look and sound of this, but the garlic bread was certainly a clincher. And it's quick. You sure know how to find all the quick, tasty dinners.

  5. I've always wondered what sloppy joes were, now I know and it sounds delicious!

  6. Like a sweet version of tamale pie! A great one dish meal for a busy night.
