Some days you have a pack of minced beef in the fridge and just can’t face the thought of making another spag bol, lasagne, cottage pie, shepherd’s pie or chilli!
Here I have gathered together a few ideas for some different ways to use your mince.
Keema curry is a curry made with minced beef or lamb and peas. This recipe from BBC Good Food sounds delicious and could easily be adapted to the slow cooker: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1755643/keema-curry-and-raita
Meatballs can be made with lamb, beef or turkey and are popular with kids and adults alike.

These herbed turkey meatballs pack a great flavour while also being low in fat: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/9046/herbed-turkey-meatballs
Moussaka is a simple alternative for your minced lamb. I usually follow the Dinner Lady’s recipe for moussaka, which doesn’t contain aubergine, just sliced potatoes, mince cooked in chopped tomatoes and a white sauce. It always goes down well with my kids.
This version is more authentic and sounds delicious: http://www.channel4.com/4food/recipes/popular-ingredients/lamb/moussaka-recipe
