If my place was Masterchef (and thank god it’s not, given that show is shit), tonight would have been the invention test. I started out wanting to make Sweet and Sour Beef but, as I tried what I’d done before adding the sweet and sour sauce, I thought that it might taste nice with a cheese sauce instead. I put a small amount of cheese sauce in a bowl and added a little of the mixture – boom, it was great.
- Beef mince
- Cheese sauce
- Cook the mince in a pan.
- While waiting for the mince to brown, chop onions and mushrooms, and grate the carrot (you could chop it, but it is easier to grate it.
- Once mince has cooked, add the onion, mushroom and carrot.
- When the vegetables (and fungus) have cooked, season with salt and pepper.
- Add the cheese sauce and cook until heated.
It’s a pretty easy one and only takes about half an hour. That was a little unfortunate, given I had allowed at least an hour – and that was for an early dinner… Oh well, meant I had a very early dinner.
