4 cloves garlic
2 sticks celery
1 kg minced beef
2 tsp ground cumin
3 bay leaves
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp sweet paprika
3 tsp cayenne pepper
6 tbsp tomato puree
3x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
100ml malt vinegar
2x 400g tin kidney beans, drained
Peel and quarter the carrots and onions, chop the celery and peel the garlic blitz all the veg in the food processor until they are chopped very finely.
Heat the oil in a large deep pan, add the veg and fry until they have all softened.
Add the minced beef and cook until it is brown all over, around 10 minutes. Then add all the other ingredients and stir well. Cook uncovered for two hours on the hob, stirring occasionally, and add a little water to stop it drying out if necessary.
Serves 6-8 people. This recipe is a great one to prepare in advance (or make double) and freeze.

Since I started working with Jaimie Meisner, early 2017, she has been very knowledgeable, proactive, and a pleasure to deal with. She is very responsive to our needs, and changing parameters. If she is out of the office, there is a ready back up or she makes time to respond directly. She did a very good job assessing our culture and understanding our environment before she searched for candidates. To date, she has helped us fill the following roles:
Manager, Food Safety & QA (US and Canada)
Plant Supervisor (US)
Director, Product Development (Canada)
Maintenance Mechanic (US)
Regional Sales Manager (US)
As well as 2 other senior roles that we put on hold (General Manager, North America; Director, Procurement).
It has been a successful partnership to date, and I expect/hope to have Jamie as my go to recruiter for many years to come.
