  • 500g beef mince (mine was Rob R's dexter)

  • 1 tin kidney beans

  • 4 medium carrots

  • 4 medium onions

  • 4 bayleaves

  • 4 cloves garlic

  • 1 knob of ginger, peeled, sliced and chopped

  • 3 small thin chillies (birdseye?)

  • cooked peel of half a Seville orange

  • 1.5 tsps coriander seed, crushed

  • a grating of nutmeg

  • 1 tin tomatoes

  • 1 small tin tomato puree (the tiny size)

  • a glug of red wine ( I used Bramble)


  1. Sweat the onions, bayleaves, ginger and chillies, then add the coriander, nutmeg and carrots and continue to sweat till soft

  2. Remove from pan to a dish

  3. Fry the beef mince till well browned

  4. Add back the sweated veg, and put in the orange peel

  5. Add the kidney beans, tomato puree and cook for 1 min

  6. Add the tinned tomatoes and wine

  7. Simmer for 20-25 mins with the lid on the pan, and 20 mins with the lid off


Serve with rice or mash, or even pasta

Don't eat the peel; it is still very bitter
