This recipe for savory mince is simple and delicious. It's popular in my husband's home country of New Zealand but versions of it exist in many parts of the world. This is my version, kiwi style, which my husband assures me is as good as he used to get growing up back in New Zealand.

- Versatile - have it on toast, mashed potato or your favorite carb!

Beef mince: also known as ground beef. Beef is traditionally used in this savory recipe but you could experiment with other ground meat if you like.
Brown onion: an easy option. You could use white, red or even spring onion too.
Corn flour: also known as corn starch, helps thicken up that beautiful savory gravy.
Tomato sauce: a staple in New Zealand and Australian households. You can sub this with ketchup which is sufficiently similar.
Worcestershire sauce: a type of savory condiment that packs a savory punch!
Frozen vegetables: a handful of frozen veggies are an easy way to make this simple dish a bit more healthy. I used a mix of corn, peas and carrots but you can use whatever you have. Or even dice up whatever fresh veg you have in the fridge that needs using up.
Garlic clove: I use a fresh garlic clove. You could try half a teaspoon of minced garlic but I think it tastes better with fresh.
Beef stock cube: adds a punch of flavor. You could try different flavors. Remember to only dissolve the stock cube in half a cup of hot water, or your gravy will be watery.
