Ten 30-minute meals made with mince 

What’s for dinner? It’s the same question that’s being asked in houses all around Australia at about 5pm. Thank goodness you have a secret weapon in the fridge: Mince. With mince, and these recipes, you’ll have a delicious dinner ready in no time. Bookmark this page 'cause you’ll want to refer to this article time and time again: Ten 30-minute Meals made with mince.

Mince cooking tips

  • Mince is best cooked in batches. This stops the mince from stewing, turning grey and losing its flavour.
     
  • Keep it hot: too much mince in the pan can over-crowd things, leading to the frying pan losing heat. Get your pan nice and hot before adding the mince in batches. Add a little more oil with each batch if needed.

Storing and freezing mince 

  • Fresh mince can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days.
     
  • Raw mince should be stored in the coldest part of your fridge, usually in the bottom corner.
     
  • If you're planning on freezing the mince. Remove it from the store packaging once you are home and place it in a freezer bag or zip-lock bag with all the air squeezed out. Try to flatten the mince so it's a thinner layer. This helps it to freeze faster and then defrost faster. Keep mince in the freezer for up to 2 months. Defrost mince in the fridge overnight.

Tips for faster meals

There are a few shortcuts to making meals quicker and easier for those busy weeknights. Here are some used in the following recipes: 

  • Opt for microwave rice rather than regular rice as it will be ready to use in just 90 seconds.
     
  • Use pre-cut frozen beans or other veg to save valuable prep time.
     
  • Choose mince rather than other cuts of beef or chicken as it will cook faster. 
     
  • Use fresh pasta rather than dried as it is quicker to cook.
     
  • If you have sausages, cut them up to cook. Sausages are basically filled with flavoured mince. Plus they look like little meatballs.

How to make chicken meatballs

Adding ricotta to chicken mince meatball misture helps to keep the meatballs from becoming too dry when using very lean chicken mince.  The creamy mushroom sauce has bags of flavour and is delicious served with fettuccine with some extra bread for dipping into that sauce.
