This beef recipe will have the protein of the lean minced beef to begin with but I do always like to stretch and ‘healthify’ fried beef by adding tinned legumes – in this case black beans and lentils. The sneaky extra protein in this recipe is to be found when serving it. I like to serve this on a toasted wholemeal flatbread spread thickly with hummus (BONUS protein points) and a good dollop of Greek yogurt (again, kerching!!)
NB – take it easy on the chilli flakes and jalepenos, let you be the judge of how much your audience can tolerate!
Spicy Beef Recipe
You will need:
A little oil
Lean beef mince (5% fat)
3 to 4 fat cloves garlic
Tin black beans
Spices – cumin, coriander, chilli flakes
Tomato puree (i use from tube)
Hummus (i used red pepper flavour)
Fresh Coriander (optional)
Heat the oil and fry the minced beef in a large frying pan until beginning to brown – approx 8/10 minutes.
Add chopped onions and garlic to centre of pan and cook for a couple of minutes.
Add the drained black beans and lentils, mix well and heat through.
Add the spices next and mix well, allow to cook for a minute or two and then add in tin of tomatoes and a good dollop of tomato puree plus a handful of chopped jalepenos.
Add some water – depending on how saucy you like it – mix well and cook until bubbling, then reduce the heat to keep warm while you toast the flatbreads (pittas or any wraps good too).
Serve on a heated flatbread topped with thickly spread hummus then the mince topped with Greek yogurt and coriander.
Wholegrain rice would make a good alternative to the flatbread.
