Basic/Non Branded Foods Beef, mince, standard 28g raw


Original 1½ Syns
Green 3 Syns



i would have kept the meatball recipe for another day and made a bolgnese sauce. bulk it up with veggies.
try and make it the day before so that any fat that rises can be skimmed off.
when you are cooking it cook it off in one pan and then add it to the other pan that has the veggies. then finish off adding whatever it is you add ie puree, herbs

I'm probably going to be shot for this but.....

I never buy extra lean minced beef. I buy my minced beef from the butchers and drain any fat off whilst it's cooking. There's hardly any normally. I also never syn it and in the 2 years I've done SW I never have.

Sorry, I'm naughty......

as a way of cooking them either dry fry them or cook them in the oven then add to your sauce.

i would dry fry them, put in the oven for 10 mins or so to finish cooking then put into the sauce.
