Minced Pork

I seem to have the world's supply of minced pork in my freezer at the moment - Tesco seem to always have the Healthy Eating extra lean stuff on offer 2 for £6, along with the minced beef so I keep buying it... but never use the pork ones!

So, does anyone have any good ideas/recipes that will use up some of the minced pork currently taking up residence in my freezer space?

Thanks

I like to make curried mince, it's a nice quick meal as i tend to put in freezer.

dry fry your mince, then i add mushrooms, frozen mix veg, 2 dessert spoons of curry powder and then add water then leave cook for around 20mins. I tend to have this with a jacket potto or sw chips

I mentioned doing curried mince the other night to my OH and he looked less than keen, but may give it a go and if he doesn't like it then tough!

I had forgotten how good the mustard sausages (from the little 100 Extra Easy days book) were when I made them... that's tomorrow night's dinner sorted then and one packet of mince gone!

Will have to give some of the other sausage recipes a go as well - thanks Erm!

Hi try green chilli its really easy and very tasty

1 pack of mince
onion
green pepper
green chilli
dried sage
tomatoes
water
salt and pepper

fresh mint
ff creme fraiche


  • fry off mince in a frying pan for about 10 mins on a high heat until it goes crspy (the crispier the better)
  • drain off the fat
  • add a good shake of dried sage & add onions and peppers & chilli fry for about 5 mins
  • add toms & water (not too much this is a dry chilli), season and let simmer for about 15-20 mins.
serve on crunchy lettuce (in little gem leaves looks good), a small drop of ff creme fraiche on top of the chilli and some of the mint.

if you have some syns left is also nice in tortillas.

To give even more kick add some tobasco once all wrapped up!
