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.

CPA were recommended to us back in 2012 after a challenging recruitment project came our way. Not only were they able to source us a talented Innovation Manager in a difficult location, this project was brought to a successful close within the timeframes we needed. Since then, CPA have sourced three new members for our team and they are all still happily with us. They clearly have expertise knowledge of the NPD market and bring a professional and focused approach to the most challenging of recruitment briefs.
