Minced Beef

#1
I had Spag Bol last night. I bought the mince and OMG the difference in price between regular and extra lean, I'll be honest, I have a husband and 3 kids and opted for the regular. I worked out the points from the pack. Once I'd fried it off I strained ALL the fat off. (about half a cup full)Then I knocked off 5 pts from the pack is that ok?
Reading through some earlier posts I think I'll opt for turkey mince next time. I'll not tell the kids and see if they notice (very fussy eaters). Wish me luck. lol.:family2:

i'm not a turkey mince fan tbh.. tastes nothing like the real thing.

i would have left the points on to be safe but if you lose weight then obviously you probably don't need to :)

i agree on the price though.. very expensive to buy the extra lean! You could try quorn mince maybe? points are dead low and it tastes much nicer than turkey mince and is often on offer in sainsburys or asda :) x

Hi Blackwidow, thanks so much for your suggestion on the quorn front. I'm deffo going to try some next week. I told hubby that I'd get it, cook it, add my bol/chilli sauce to it and freeze it in portions then I know exactly where I am. Is it ok to refreeze?
Then he pipes up that he wouldn't mind trying it (he's 5 foot 11" and 11 stone wet through) what is it with men? They can't see anything without wanting it. This has totally mucked up my plans now. Grrr!!

You should try quorn mince, it's really low in fat. Actuallly, it's free on SW, but still really low in points n WW. Tastes nice too.

Quorn make their own brand mince (but dont use the whole packet, only half for 3-4 people; its way too much cos there is no fat so it doesn't reduce)!! £1.99 for 300g. Available in all supermarkets. Sainsbury's also do their own brand £2 for 400g. I would assume most supermarkets do their own.

HTH

I always found lean frozen mince cheaper than fresh. I can't remember the brand name as I bought it ages ago. It was from Tesco's though.
