Growing up, I knew that Thursday nights were Savoury Mince on toast nights. Not my favourite at the time but I just didn’t understand the simplicity of the dish and how much my Mum would have loved it. Although she has now moved on from making this dish every Thursday night, this is THE recipe and I just had to share it with you. In the words of Luigi, it’s not fancy but it’s cheap.
All good things must come to an end though, this is the last of the $2 meals. Hope you have enjoyed them and revelled in the fact that you have only spent $10 in the past 5 weeks by spending time with me.
150g lean minced beef
1/4 onion, diced
1 carrot, peeled and finely chopped
1 stick of celery, finely diced
100g frozen peas and corn

1 slice grainy bread
Spray a non stick frypan with cooking spray and cook onion until softened and slightly browned. Add mince and a cook until well browned and then the remaining vegetables. Stir fry until vegetables are softened. Add the combined gravox and water and simmer on low for 10-15 minutes.
