Baked Mince and Cheese Risotto - EASY DINNER RECIPE

Postby Linky » Mon Jul 13, 2015 4:13 pm

I thought I'd post the first recipe here as part of the EASY dinner challenge. Maybe everyone could add their go-to recipe and I could add a few more to my repertoire!


Oven Baked Mince and Cheese Risotto

Ingredients

1 onion finely chopped
2 garlic clove crushed
1 tbs oil
500 g beef mince
1 tbs soy sauce
6 cup beef stock (liquid)
2 cup rice
1 cup tasty cheese grated
2 tbs butter

Method

STEP 1 Fry the onions and garlic in the hot oil. Add the soy sauce and mince.
STEP 2 Cook until the mince begins to brown and the liquid from the meat has evaporated.
STEP 3 In a saucepan, bring the beef stock to the boil and add the rice.
STEP 4 Cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the rice is almost cooked.
STEP 5 Mix the meat mixture with the rice and add the cheese.
STEP 6 Oil the inside of a casserole dish and pour in the mixture.
STEP 7 Press down on the surface until it is even, then place small pieces of butter on top.
STEP 8 Bake at 180C for 30 minutes, until a crust forms on top.

I quite often make this in advance, to Step 7, and then it can be baked later in the day. Haven't tried it overnight, but it heats up well the next day, so I don't think it would be a problem.

That sounds yummy. Might give it a try next week after I've done the shopping. I don't think I have any mince left in the freezer.

I also throw 3/4 of a cup of frozen peas in with the cheese - then I don't need a vegetable side.

I was planning on using peas and corn - I'm all about all in one meals!

That sounds good Lynn. I was looking for inspiration for dinner tonight. Is there any liquid left in the rice when almost cooked?

I drained it at that point, though it was quite soupy because of the reduced stock. I didnt rinse it though.

Will do. Me too Lynn. I had a lick of the spoon after I spooned it into the dish and tasted pretty yummy.
