Servings 8
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 2 hrs


  • 1 brown onion
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 500 gm beef mince
  • 1.5 cup diced carrot Approx. 2 carrots
  • 2 cup diced eggplant Approx. half a large eggplant
  • 1.5 cup diced zucchini Approx. half a large zucchini
  • 2 bay leaves (dried)
  • 1 cup vegetable / beef stock This is optional, as the flavours will still be full of deliciousness!
  • 1.5 tbsp dried oregano You can also use fresh oregano (2 twigs).
  • 2 tins diced tomatoes Total: 800gram
  • salt & pepper generous pinch, personal preference.

Optional Extra

  • 2 twigs of basil


  • In a large pot add the olive oil and diced brown onion.
  • Once onions have become golden, add the minced beef.
  • Once the beef has browned add stock, carrots, eggplant and zucchini.
  • Once the liquid has come to the boil add the bay leaves, diced tomatoes, oregano and salt and pepper.
    Optional extra: You can place the fresh basil at this point.
  • Mix well and place on a low heat. Place lid on top and let it cook for at least 1.5 – 2 hours (the longer the better).
  • This sauce tastes even better and richer after it has been frozen. I find the flavours fuse exceptionally well in the freezer. Give it a try, its seriously yum!
