  • 1kg grass-fed organic beef mince
  • 2 x 690ml bottle tomato puree
  • 1 1/2 brown onions, finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 medium zucchini, diced

  • Good sized handful fresh herbs (oregano, parsley and/or basil)
  • 1 tbs dried mixed Italian herbs
  • Chilly (fresh or dried) to taste
  • Salt & pepper to taste

* healthy fat – a heat-stable fat/oil such as coconut oil, ghee, butter, sustainable palm oil, organic animal fat


Brown mince and a large pot on medium heat. Remove from pot and set aside.

Add 2 tbs healthy fat to pot with onions and garlic. Simmer while stirring for a few minutes. Add vegetables and cook while stirring for 4-5 minutes or until they start to soften. Add all other ingredients, including the brown mince and bring to a boil.

Simmer on a low heat for 2-3 hours with the pot lid on an angle. Sauce will reduce in volume.

Serves 4-6 people.
