Minced Beef and Sweet Potato Stew
1 tbsp oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped
1 celery stick, sliced
500g minced beef
1 tbsp tomato purée
1 tbsp mushroom ketchup
400g can chopped tomatoes
450g sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
few thyme sprigs
1 bay leaf
handful parsley, chopped
Savoy cabbage, to serve

Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onion, carrot and celery, and sweat
for 10 mins until soft. Add the beef and cook until it is browned all over.

Add the tomato purée and cook for a few mins, then add the mushroom
ketchup, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, herbs and a can full of water. Season
well and bring to the boil.

Simmer on a low heat for 40-45 mins until the sweet potatoes are tender,
stirring a few times throughout cooking to make sure they are cooking

Once cooked, remove the bay leaf, stir through the chopped parsley and
serve with cabbage.
