This is something I regularly make for the family...hearty and delicious.
Heat a pan with olive oil
Dice onion and bacon
Add onion and bacon to pan
Cook until soft/golden
Add garlic, cook out
Add mince and cook until all meat is browned and water content is cooked off
Add tomato paste and cook out
Add spaghetti sauce (used to add flavour and save time)
Add crushed tomatoes
Add carrot & mushrooms
Add beef stock and slat & pepper to taste
Simmer gently for 45mins-1 hour
Whilst not a 'chef' meal it is THE best tasting spag bol ever. Sometimes I add chilli paste with the onions, depends if I want to argue with the the kids or not!
