Here, in most places, you can pick your piece of beef and the butcher will mince it for you, which is great so you know what your mince consists of!
100g raw minced beef contains 225 kcal; 19.7g protein; 16.2g fat; of which 6.9g saturated fat; 1.4mg iron; 0.37mg vitamin B6; 2mg vitamin B12. Minced meat is a great source of bio-available protein, which means the protein is more easily absorbed into the body than if it were vegetable-based protein.
I have concentrated mainly on Turkish recipes. Here is one for Mince and Potatoes turkish style - Musaka (spellings may vary).
5 tablespoons (100ml) olive oil
500g beef mince
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 potatoes, peeled and cut into 2cm cubes
200g tomato puree
1 tablespoon chopped basil leaves
1 egg, lightly beaten
2/3 cup (150ml) natural yoghurt
Preheat oven to 160 degrees C. Heat oil in a frypan over medium heat. Cook the mince until evenly browned. Add the paprika, cumin, salt and pepper. Stir in potatoes and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato puree and basil.
