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 
  • 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 to faster meals

There are a few shortcuts to making a 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.
