ingredients for the best ground beef recipe

You'll need:

  • 1 pound/500 grams extra lean ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • 1 can/ 3/4 pound/ 400 gm tinned diced tomatoes
  • 3 tbs soy sauce
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 stock cube
  • 1 tbs oil if not using a non-stick pan
  • 1 cup of dehydrated peas
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tbs plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • Optional - as many hard boiled eggs as pleases you
  • Topping - 3 cups of mashed potato, mashed sweet potato from 1 medium sized yam
  • 12 hole muffin trays - I used 2 x 6 hole silicone non-stick trays

How to cook the meat sauce

It's incredibly simple!

Before you do anything else, turn on the oven to preheat at 440F/220C.

Firstly brown the meat and onions in a nonstick pan. Otherwise be sure to add oil, about 1 tablespoon.

When browned, tip in all the ingredients except the eggs and flour.

You can see in the photo, I'm cooking the hard boiled eggs as well, to go in the center of the muffin.

When the ground beef sauce is all cooked and the dehydrated peas look plump, stir in the flour and the 2 eggs. This is what binds the meat together in the muffin.

Spoon a little of the ground beef sauce so as to line the base of the muffin mold.

Add in the boiled egg, if you're including these.

Fill the muffin holes to the top with the ground beef sauce.

Bake in the oven for 35 - 40 minutes.

In the meantime prepare the sweet potato. Boil in salted water till tender, then mash with a masher.

Also, prepare the mashed potato to make 3 cups of mash. I use dehydrated packet mash and make it to instructions and also add a cupful of shredded tasty cheese.

Here we go, the best ground beef muffins all golden brown and baked to perfection, with the toppings of mash potato and yams ready to apply.

When the ground beef "cupcakes" are cool, decant them onto a serving platter.

Now apply the mash generously as topping. They look sensational!  You could garnish with finely chopped chives, but I prefer not to as I like them to look like muffins with icing.
