Recipe: minced beef & vegies with sweet Thai chili

One of my favourite EASY dinners: Minced beef and vegies with sweet Thai chili sauce:

150g lean minced beef per person
1 onion, chopped
2 handfuls per person of your favourite vegies (chopped)
sweet Thai chili sauce
soy or tamari sauce
fish sauce (optional)

Chop vegies into bite-sized pieces. Some of my favourites to use in this recipe are carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and beans. Place a large frying pan on medium heat and add minced beef and chopped onion. Brown the mince. When mince is nearly cooked through, pour the soy or tamari sauce over the top (about 1 tablespoon per person) and a tablespoon of fish sauce then drizzle the sweet Thai chili (to taste, I use quite a lot) over the top and mix through. Turn down the heat to low and let the mince simmer in the sauce for about 10 minutes until the meat gets a nice, sticky, carmelised appearance. At the same time, place the vegies in a steamer and cook so that they are finished when the beef is carmelised.

Place about 2 cups of steamed vegies per person in large bowls then ladle the beef and sauce mixture over the top.
