Tonight for supper I made a dish I grew up with, in Africa; it's an
ideal introduction to mildly curried dishes, and a wonderful
opportunity to get lots and lots of polyphenols into a meal.

For 4 people, served with a green salad, the ingredients a

600g steak mince (aka ground beef)
lge yellow onion
2 cloves garlic
2T dried unsweetened cranberries
2T sultanas
1 green apple, chopped
2t curry powder
1t cinnamon
1t turmeric
oil for frying
2 eggs
splash milk - maybe 25 ml

Gently fry onion until slightly coloured. Add garlic and fry for a
minute, until the aroma is released. Add meat and spices, brown. Add
fruit. Check seasoning. Let mixture cool a little.

Heat the oven to 160deg C.
Beat eggs and milk together.
Pour meat mixture into a casserole dish, and press down flat. Pour
over egg mixture, and bake for 30 mins.

I ate a good portion of this tonight, with a nice green salad with
vinaigrette, and a glass of red wine. I had a square of 85% choc for
dessert, and was 5.9 (106) at 1 hour. I hope it works as well for you!

That looks just great. For those on the western side of the pond,
sultanas are the same as golden raisins. I suspect that if I can'r find
the cranberries, raisins would work, too.

We LOVE curry, and hubby gets his over spaghetti squash.

OK, that one's a keeper! Now, how much is 600g in pounds or ounces?

Priscilla, who used a package of ground beef in pasta sauce last night,
darn it!

I can't find dried UNsweetened cranberries, but I got some dried
unsweetened currants the other day. Hmmmm....

I used http://www.gourmetsleuth.com/gram_calc.htm to answer my own
question. It's 21 ounces, which is 1 lb 5 oz, or a little over 1 1/4
lbs.

As we used to say..."Six of one, and a half-dozen of the other"! Go for
it!! Priscilla, what are craisins.........do they fit in this category
here in the US?

Dried cranberries are called craisins in Australia, for any
Oz readers.

I have only ever put sultanas and apple in my sweet curries.
But cranberries are nice.

Great, we get craisins here in the US, but I have never bought any.

Apologies for non-translation : ) Pre-dx, I used to stretch the meat
a little with a slice of bread soaked in milk. Milk and meat often go
together in South African cookery, which strikes me as odd now because
we knew several Jewish people out there who kept kosher - I wonder
what they subbed? It always tasted good... Anyway, back to the point -
if one package of ground beef wouldn't feed the crowd you're cooking
for, it can be stretched by adding sauteed chopped veggies - carrot
and celery would go well, as would eggplant or mushroom. The mixture
might be a bit dry at the end of the frying pan stage, but that's OK -
the egg mix will bind it all together.

Incidentally, the original fruit mixture would be sultanas and dried
apricots, which are of wonderful quality in South Africa. I happened
to be out of apricots, but subbing the cranberries should increase the
polyphenol level, and the apple acts to recycle the vit C so you use
it much more effectively. I think it still works that way when you
cook the apple!

Priscilla, 1000grams = 1 kilogram = 2.2 pounds
So 600grams = .6 x 2.2 = 1.32 pounds ~ 1 pound 5 oz

I found some only right at the time they were in season, and only briefly.
Meanwhile, I made my own.
