Making your own mince meat

Making your own mince meat takes just a short time and with the aid of a good food processor is a simple process, plus you will know that it is fresh and preservative free. I have demonstrated how to make beef mince here but you could follow the procedure with any kind of boneless meat.

It is easy, healthy, economical and a good decision for you and your family.

Firstly, purchase a good quality piece of grass fed beef which you will need to buy from a local butcher or Farmer’s Market as examples.

This piece was quite large so l decided to roast half and mince the other half.

Dice the beef so it can be minced in the food processor.

Place the diced beef into the food processor using the chopping blade. If you have a large amount, mince it in small batches.

Process until the beef looks like mince. It is now ready to use in your favourite dish.

If you have too much mince you can easily freeze this to use at a later date.

Sticky, tasty and nutritious!

The main ingredient is the grass fed beef ribs. It is important to use the best meat possible and this will involve searching your area for a butcher who sells locally grown grass fed meat.

Wash your ribs in filtered water in preparation for cooking.

Make a marinade using a tablespoon each of coconut oil, coconut sugar and honey. Place in a saucepan and heat gently on the stove.

Melt the marinade ingredients gently on the stove.

Place the ribs in a bowl and mix the marinade through so they are all coated.

Coated and ready for baking

Place the ribs into a baking tray. Season with pink rock salt and black pepper.

I used a metal tray and didn’t use baking paper.

Cover with aluminium foil and bake in a pre-heated 180 degree celsius oven for approximately 2 hours.

There will be a lovely aroma in your home as these ribs cook.

Serve the ribs with your favourite vegetables or salad.

Ribs with roasted swede, sweet potato, carrot and beetroot.

The longer you cook these ribs the more tender and tasty they become. The marinade is a feature and the cooking time allows for a wonderful stickiness to develop using all natural ingredients.
