WFLW: Cheapo Beef Chilli

A few years ago I blogged asking you guys for lunch ideas and you duly supplied. I’ve decided to return the favour by doing a new blog series: “what’s for lunch Wednesdays”. Each Wednesday (or, when I remember) I’ll tell you what I’ve got for lunch. If you want to do the same thing, link back to this post and I’ll approve the pingbacks for a bit of link love.

Today’s Lunch

Today I have leftovers from Monday night: cheapo chilli beef. Like chilli con carne, only without the kidney beans (which I dislike).

In a large pan with a glug of olive oil and a small knob of butter, I fried up 2 onions, a handful of mushrooms and 4 cloves of garlic. To this I added some jarred sweet chilli sauce that was on offer (I’m not a big chilli lover so don’t buy fresh) and a 500g portion of minced beef. When the beef had browned all over I added a small tin of baked beans, a tin of chopped tomatoes, and a quarter of a tube of tomato puree.

Bish bash bosh, serve with rice boiled with peas and sweetcorn for an extra veggie hit.
