This is a Pakistani dish. She isn't heavy handed with spices, which makes her cooking light, yet aromatic. We usually eat this dish with warm roti, raita and finely sliced onion with a splash of lemon juice.

This is FANTASTIC. I serve with cucumber raita and chapatis. I doubled the spices and it is just right, very flavourful and aromatic but not very spicy - just right. You must try this dish, it's really fab!-03 Nov 2009

This really is Fantastic, flavoursome, tasty not overly spicy. A new favourite in our house.-15 Sep 2012

This was lovely, a gently seasoned bean dish- like my mum makes! I wanted to keep it meat free so just added extra beans which I had boiled for an hour before.-03 May 2016

Minced Meat and Beans Sauce

I’m always looking for how to incorporate beans into my children’s food. I’m glad they are getting to love some of the beans creations like the creamy beans porridge and the ukwa beans…the “beans makes you grow tall” tale is working in my favour.

Minced meat and beans is a combination of minced meat sauce and cooked beans for eating their favourite food like rice, yam, potatoes or plantain. The minced meat comes out in chunky lumps that makes it also perfect to be eaten alone. I earlier made this with kidney beans but decided to try it this time with our more regular black-eyed beans cooked to perfection.

Beans should be well cooked before you start making your sauce and you can change the consistency of your sauce to your liking…fluidy as a sauce for rice or a thicker sauce like mine for eating root foods or to be eaten alone. Beans can be more or less depending on your preference. Add a little if you have a picky eater that will go ga-ga on seeing so much beans in his/her mince (lol).

Minced Meat and Beans Sauce Recipe

  • 1-2 cups cooked black-eyed beans
  • 400g minced or ground meat
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 large carrot
  • 2 medium onions
  • 1 seasoning cube
  • 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • A small chunk ginger (crushed)
  • Thyme
  • All purpose seasoning powder
  • Basil/scent/nchuanwu/efirin leaves (chopped)
  • 1 cooking spoon vegetable oil or oil of choice (I’m now feeling palm oil would have given a better taste)
  • 1½ – 2 cups water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Season minced meat with garlic, ginger, one onion, some seasoning powder and the seasoning cube. Use your hand to knead it while mixing as this will help it get that chunky texture when cooking. Allow to marinate for at least 20-30 minutes.
  2. Blend tomatoes, pepper, carrot and set aside. Heat oil in a sauce pan and fry the other shredded onions for about a minute.
  3. Stir in the minced meat and cook till they are all browned. Pour in the blended tomatoes an cook for about 5 minutes before adding 1 or 1½ cups of water. Add seasoning and salt and cover to cook for at least 20 minutes. Top with more water if sauce is getting dry.
  4. Stir in the beans and basil leaves, then mix together. Allow to cook for a further 2-5 minutes on low heat while checking for taste.
  5. Remove from heat and serve.

To cook dried beans at home, wash and soak them in water overnight or for at least 7 hours. After 7 hours put them in a pressure cooker with water around 1 inch above the level of beans.

Cook until 3 whistles of the pressure cooker. 1 cup of dried beans will yield around 2 cups of cooked beans.

Black-eyed peas get cooked faster than other beans like kidney beans or chickpeas. So cook them for a lesser time. Also, in the salad, we don't want mushy beans. They should retain their shape but easily get pressed between two fingers.

Allow the beans to reach room temperature then strain before adding to the salad.

Don't discard the water. It's very nutritious. Use it instead of plain water to knead any dough or use in stews and curries. Just keep in mind that though this water will make your dish more nutritious it will change the color of the dish.

There are many ways to make a vegetable casserole and you can make changes to this recipe using different vegetables. I used sweet potato, celery and carrot along with onion and half a leek. Squashes and root vegetables such as swede or parsnip would all be excellent in this dish. It can be cooked in a slow cooker too – just put all the ingredients into the pot, stir and cook o high for an hour and low for over 5 hours

The stew can easily be frozen or kept in the fridge for 2-3 days for reheating.
