One of my favorite blogs Lady and Pups created a blog category called THE SHITS I EAT WHEN BY MYSELF. (Here she presents all the recipes she cooks fast & easy for herself when hungry, feeling cold, feeling alone, distressed, stressed out…) When doing this fennel mess for the umpteenth time I realized that this is a candidate for such a category – if I ever had such a category!
What is it about?
It’s only about grabbing some vegetables, some meat & then just fry it…
It’ll be something for a bowl to be eaten at once… filling your hungry self!
What do we need?
- fresh fennel
- spring onions
- minced beef.
Just clean & trim the fennel. Put aside the fennel’s green.
Chop the spring onions – not too small, not too roughly.
Chop the fennel – as fine as you can… Discard the trunk – it’s too hard!
Then put everything in a pan w/ some olive oil & fry. Add the minced beef & fry somewhat more.
The mess is ready when the fennel seems soft & the meat is well done. (Maybe you get the feeling that it’s too dry… then add some splashes of water & continue frying!)
Add salt & pepper to taste.
So once again:
The mess is ready when well done & slightly brown.
If you like you may add 1 tablespoon of dark or light soy sauce!
Enjoy & dig in!
- 250 g minced beef
- 3-4 fennel about 650 g gross weight
- 3-4 spring onions
- olive oil
- optional: 1-2 tbsp soy sauce light or dark
- salt & pepper
- Clean & trim the fennel; it should be about 300-350 g fennel net weight.
- Chop the fennel as thin as possible.
- Add olive oil to a pan.
- Fry the minced beef & crush it.
- Add chopped fennel & let it fry softly for about 15-20 min. Add some splashes of water if it seems too dry.
- Increase the heat & fry at high temperature for another 5 min until crisp.
- optional: Add soy sauce.
- Add salt & pepper to taste.
You may add the fennel’s green…
You may also add some cooked rice as a basis or aside…
…& you might replace minced pork for minced beef or a mix of both… or any other minced meat…
You may add some more spring onions or just omit them.
You may take more meat or more fennel – it’s up to your preference (or whatever you’ll find in your fridge (or at your trusted 24/7 deli!)).
The businesswoman with too many office hours thinks
Yeah – finally we’ve arrived at the point when you are coming home, hungry, maybe cold… & all you ask for is fast & easy dish comforting you!
Okay: you need some fresh minced meat & fennels… but the rest is no sophisticated cookery, but only chopping & frying!
