An old family favourite. Remeber doing this when I was a child.

Wonder if using Varoma temp may cook the mince faster?

I used the varoma temperature for 3minutes to heat up the oil then sauteed the mince plus the onion on 100o. Added about 600g vegies (hand chopped to replicate the original version of this recipe)and it worked beautifully. Nice and thick & tasty - far better than the old saucepan version. Thanks Chookie - only way to do it now.
