Quick, easy and very economical to make. Serve with white rice and atchar or homemade blatjang.
1 kg minced meat
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 large onions, finely chopped
1 large green pepper, finely chopped
2 tsp finely grated garlic
2 green chillies, chopped
3 bay leaves
1 tsp salt (or to taste)
1 tsp black pepper
1 cube beef stock dissolved in 1 cup hot water (optional)
4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into small pieces
2 cups frozen mix veg or frozen peas
Heat the oil in a large pot. Add the onion and braise until the onions are very brown. Once the onions are brown add the green pepper, garlic and spices, you may add half a cup of water if the onions are starting to stick to the bottom of the pot. Add the minced meat, stir to separate the minced meat, cook over medium heat until the mince is brown.
Next add the potatoes pieces with the beef stock, if using or water as necessary, cook until the potatoes are semi soft. Add the frozen veg / peas and cook over low to medium heat until the potatoes are soft. You may add more water if necessary. Serve with white rice and atchars or blatjang.
