Dad's New Zealand Mince Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
I loved this recipe!! I too however tweaked it just a tad.. I used 1 medium sized onion instead of the 3 large onions that are called for in the recipe, and instead of using onion powder (which I couldn't find anywhere) I used a packet of dry onion soup mix. This helped to thicken the stew and cut back on the extra half a cup of water. I used ordinary tomato paste (half a cup) instead of ketchup and added some chili flakes for a little more kick. I also followed the suggestions of many other reviewers and cut the pepper down slightly, although I ended up adding more to my serving anyway! Frozen mixed vegetables were added to the stew but I think the recipe will be better with some chunky cut potatoes. All in all very delicious and will definitely be making again.
