Alternative to bolognese for mince meat

Answered on August 19, 2014

Anything else I can do with mince meat other than bolegnese? I think the tomatoes aren't agreeing with me and mince on it's own is not too nice, cheers

Ground beef to US peeps

I second the kebabs idea! Season the meat with several spices (cinnamon, cumin, paprika, allspice, S & P), skewer, and grill or bake.

I make it into taco meat-- and generally eat it, along with sauteed veggies, wrapped with lettuce-- it emulates a taco or a burrito. I also keep extra in the fridge so I can toss it over a salad or even eat it with a spoon.

I make my own taco seasoning (I make it in bulk so it's ready to go), this is my recipe: http://www.livefabuless.com/taco-seasoning

Other options are meatballs (I serve them over cucumber "noodles"-- just peel and julienne a cucumber) or burgers (which I also eat wrapped in lettuce leaves).

Try different spices-- from Mexican to Greek to Asian-- and have fun :)

You can make a low-carb shepherd's pie, substituting mashed cauliflower for mashed potatoes.

If you like bolognese, you could try it with pureed roasted red peppers instead of tomatoes.

I agree with the other suggestions; I also eat a patty of it as I would a whole piece of meat, with seasonings on the outside. Blackened is my favorite! I don't know if blackened food is something that they have much outside the US, but it's a little spicy and very flavorful, and it's delicious on just about any kind of meat, poultry, or seafood (probably not a really mild fish, but a stronger fish like shark or salmon holds up to it really well, as does shrimp). You can adjust it to your taste, but here's how I make my blackening:

1 1/2 tablespoons paprika 1 tablespoon garlic powder 1 tablespoon onion powder 1 tablespoon ground dried thyme 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon dried basil 1 teaspoon dried oregano

For your mince, just make however much you want in to a patty, sprinkle the seasoning on both sides, pat it in a little so it sticks well, and cook as usual.

I sometimes do a paleo moussaka, you could also try some kebab/kofte style meals

I saute it with mushrooms and onions, and mix in whatever herbs smell good to me while cooking.

I made a stroganoff recently and it turned out good. (But haven't had the "real" thing lately, so no way to compare.)

I browned the ground beef, set aside. Saute some sliced mushrooms and sliced onions. Add the meat back in, add a can of coconut cream. Eat as is or serve over mashed potatoes if I've done a workout. CC cream = full fat mouth feel without the dairy (sour cream).

I second the taco seasonings - put a couple of over-medium eggs on the top and some salsa verde (sour cream and cheese optional).

Crackslaw is a popular low-carb recipe that works well for a Paleo diet. There's a million recipes for it online.

It's basically ground beef sauteed with a bunch of thinly-sliced cabbage, a little onion and some garlic. Season with soy sauce (if you use it) and a bit of toasted sesame oil. It's good with other vegetables added as well. It's a great way to use up all the odds and ends in your fridge.
