Baked Bean Con Carne
152 197
No bits, no pips, and not spicy, this is an ideal way to introduce a new meal to your kids

baked bean con carne

Pack of lean mince500g
Can baked beans420g
Passata (jar or carton)500g
Medium onion
Garlic clove
tomato puree
Marmite or Bovril
Butter or cooking oil

This is a great meal to get kids interested in different foods. It is not spicy hot and because it uses passata it has no bits or pips. Itís great served with rice or on a jacket potato, and whatís left over will freeze brilliantly. Because of this, I usually make double the quantities here and then freeze half of it so that for the next meal I only have to defrost and heat up to be ready.
. . .

This recipe should serve one adult and three hungry kids with a little bit left over for a couple of jacket potato meals another time.

How to make it

Peel and chop a medium onion into small pieces, and crush a garlic clove. Fry the onion and garlic in a little butter over a medium heat, until golden brown (~2 mins). Put the fried onion and garlic in an oven proof pot and add a family size can of baked beans and a 500g pack of passata (sieved tomatoes). Heat the pot on the hob and add a teaspoon of Marmite or Bovril and a squirt of tomato puree and stir.
. . . Fry a 500g pack of lean mince (lean is better for you) in a very small amount of olive oil, until brown. Add to the oven proof pot and stir. If you want to freeze some for another meal just add an extra 500g pack of mince. Cover the pot and either put on the oven (Mk 4, 350F, 180C) or slowly simmer on the hob on the lowest heat for about 1 hour or longer if you want.
. . . Fifteen minutes before you want to eat, using a standard sized mug measure out one and a half mugs of rice and put into a saucepan. Add twice the amount of water as rice by volume (i.e. 3 mugs) and bring to the boil. When the rice is boiling, stir once or twice, then turn off the heat and put on the saucepan lid. Wait for 15 minutes (do not remove the lid to check on the progress) after 15 minutes all the water will have been absorbed by the rice and it will be ready to eat. Serve rice onto plates and spoon or ladle the baked bean con carne on top. If you like, grate cheese over it or garnish with a dollop of crŤme fraÓche and a drizzle of maple syrup.

The recipe instructions are so easy to follow, and they're quick to download.

Cooking for guests
As a man, thereís something nice about cooking for appreciative guests. Perhaps itís because it gives you an excuse to show off; or maybe itís the chance of acting out a little theatre in the kitchen, or conceivably itís the fulfilling of that primordial hunter gather drive to provide sustenance.

Seared Ahi Tuna

Whatever it is, cooking someone a meal can be such a great pleasure for both you and the person you are cooking it for. Even better if you are able to cook while your guest or guests are actually with you so that you can get them involved in the food preparation, it certainly breaks the ice and is a good way to get the conversation going. Thereís also something about moving into a new place and cooking your first few proper meals, it really does make a place feel more like home.

Poached Salmon

Even if youíve never cooked before, you'll quickly discover that there really is nothing to it. The recipe instructions are simply written and illustrated to provide guidance at a glance when youíre in the thick of it. I have carefully chosen a few easy to master recipes that are big on results, you know, the sort of food you might expect to get in an expensive restaurant or hotel, but youíre going to be able to make it in a few minutes.

Eggs Benedict

Try Eggs Benedict one night when itís late and your guest fancies a snack, or perhaps for one of those late morning posh breakfasts with coffee and juice. Itís a very simple meal to make, but so rich and glorious, it will always cause a stir and stick in the memory for a long while. But then, why not try the Seared Tuna Ahi. Personally I never really liked fish, but then one day I tried seared Tuna Ahi steak and I was converted. Itís the most simple meal and to those watching you make it, appears as if you have conjured up a little slice of culinary heaven from thin air in about 10 minutes (this is a great meal to whip up on the barbeque just as easily).

Eggs Benedict

And if you have a good recipe of your own, why not send it in to us so that you can share it with all those other dads wanting to cook for grown ups.
