I love mince. It’s easy to use and versatile in terms of the shapes and flavours it can take on. 

A slab of pork mince can be transformed into gingery stuffing for Asian dumplings just as well as it can be used in Western cuisine to make meatballs. That’s how easy and fun working with mince really is! Many of the following recipes can be made with any type of mince: beef, chicken, turkey or even fish – see my Fish mince recipe on hints how to make minced fish mixture.

Tips for buying mince:

  • If you are not too sure about the pre-packed kind you can get from the supermarket, visit your local butcher and ask them to mince some fresh for you.
  • Try to buy grass-fed beef mince
  • Always go for at least free range or organic mince
  • Fattier mince blends (pork, lamb and beef) are great for meatballs, meatloaves and dumplings.
