This recipe makes a LOT of savoury mince which is excellent because it is cheap, tasty, versatile, and freezes exceptionally well. Use your leftovers on top of baked potatoes, on toast or as a pie filling, or mix through hot pasta.

If you’d prefer not to use a slow cooker, you can follow the same instructions and cook, covered, on a stove top for 45 minutes.
