  • 1 Heat the oil in a pan and gently fry the onion, over a medium-heat, until softened. Stir in the Ground Cumin, Ground Coriander, Oregano and Bay Leaf. Cook for 1 minute to release the flavours.
  • 2 Add the beef mince and brown for about 4-5 minutes. Drain excess oil if necessary. Add the Paprika, tomato purée and Crushed Chillies.
  • 3 Stir in the chopped tomatoes, beef stock and kidney beans. Turn up the heat for 1 minute, then reduce the heat and simmer for around 10 minutes until the sauce has thickened and the mince is cooked. Season to taste.
