Jo-anne's Easy Asian Style Caramelised Mince


2 Tbsp oil

1 onion finely chopped

1 large carrot finely diced 

2 cloves garlic finely chopped

1 Tbsp fresh ginger grated

500g pork mince or beef mince

5 Tbsp brown sugar

2 Tbsp fish sauce

1 head broccoli chopped into florets and lightly steamed (I steam over the rice as it cooks)

1/2 cup of coriander leaves chopped

Cooked basmati or Jasmine rice to serve

Optional: Spring onion and fresh chilli finely sliced to garnish



Heat oil in large frypan and brown onion and carrot on medium heat with garlic until soft. Add ginger and pork mince breaking up any lumps with the back of a wooden spoon until it is cooked through. Add sugar and fish sauce and stir, then allow to caramelise stirring every 2-5 mins depending on how much you would like the meat caramelised. 

Mix in the steamed broccoli and sprinkle over the coriander leaves. 

Serve over rice. I recommend serving with Asian slaw. 

Serve 4-6 easily.
