( Minced Meat )
Screen Shot 2019-04-25 at 13.52.23.png


Minced Meat is a very popular traditional type of 'minced up meat' in the UK, and many other European counrties, It is used for a whole host of main meals such as Cottage pie, spaghetti Bolognese, meat and potato pie and so on.
I was gobsmacked when a couple weeks ago I said to my office women that I'd cook Speghetti Bolognese for us all in the evening.Well this is what I hoped for

"What's 'minced meat' she said, so I tried to explain, showing here a picture on my phone "We don't have here" was the reply.
I had taken a tin of tomatoes, together with a flavouring mix but the tinned tomatoes it seems is also not a thing that can be bought in China. Well Guangdong I'm referring to anyway.

So I had to buy steak strips and chop it up in to small pieces.

It wasn't much like a Spag Bog as the meat was tough and not soft as Minced Meat.

Well I thought FFS I wont be doing that again

I sat down a bit fed up and she took my picture not looking so happy

Not really. Minced meat is available at any super market here in CQ. How come not in GD which is the home of Cantonese cuisine?

Carrefour, Tesco, Metro etc. even morning markets here in Dalian got minced meat and tinned tomatoes, well tinned tomatoes at the morning markets you won't get. If you don't go yourself to do your shopping you won't get what you need.
I like to make curry mince, Cottage pie, spaghetti Bolognese but never buy minced meat at a super market, invest in a meat grinder and you know that your minced meat came out of a clean machine.
