Listed in: Main Courses

• 1 onion, thinly sliced
• 1 small red pepper, seeded and finely diced
• 1-2 fresh red chillies (depending on taste), seeded and finely chopped
• 1 spoon light olive oil
• 500 g (1 lb 2 oz) lean minced beef, broken up with a fork
• 1 teaspoon EACH ground cumin and ground coriander
• 1/2-1 teaspoon hot chilli powder, or to taste
• Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
• 2 spoon tomato puree
• About 350 ml (12 fl oz) hot beef stock
• 400 g (14 oz) can chopped tomatoes
• 400 g (14 oz) can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained

Cooking Instructions

Place the onion, red pepper and chillies in the ActiFry pan, then drizzle the oil evenly over the top. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the minced beef to the ActiFry, breaking up the beef with a fork. Cook for 5 minutes or until the meat is coloured/sealed all over.

Mix the ground spices and seasoning with the tomato puree, then stir this mixture into 200 ml (7 fl oz) of the beef stock. Add the stock mixture and canned tomatoes to the ActiFry. Cook for 25 minutes. Stop the ActiFry once or twice during cooking and stir the mixture using a wooden spoon or spatula.

Add the canned beans and the remaining 150 ml (1/4 pint) hot beef stock and cook for a further 5-10 minutes, stirring once during cooking and adding a little extra hot stock, if desired. Serve with boiled rice and sprinkle with a little grated hard cheese, if desired.

I've tried with pork and bit of smoked farmers bacon, and I can't remember better chilly Left by: dan (26 Mar 2012)

The recipe was tasty enough, but I'm not sure it's actually necessary to use the Actifry. Will use the recipe again, but will use the conventional cooking method of a pan instead. Left by: Graham (11 Oct 2011)
