NOTES

Shortcut: Place mince into a microwave-safe bowl. Cover loosely with paper towels. Heat for 4 to 5 minutes on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power, stirring every 2 minutes, or until warm.

To make basic mince (makes 8 cups): Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 finely chopped onion, 1 stick celery, and 1 red and 1 green capsicum. Cook for 3 minutes or until soft. Add 1kg lean beef mince. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up mince, for 8 to 10 minutes or until browned. Add 400g can chopped Italian tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until thick.
Use immediately or allow to cool completely then freeze for up to 3 months in a container just large enough to hold mince.
