Minced Collops

Recipe by  

"A delicious way to stretch ground beef. This is a traditional Scottish recipe. It's quick and very easy, and my family loves it with mashed potatoes. The combination of beef and oatmeal sounds really weird at first, I know, but it is delicious. Steel-cut oats can be a bit pricey, but one tin will last a long, long time. Leftovers of this are wonderful. I've made sandwiches with it; I've filled tortillas with it; I've wrapped it in puff pastry and made little pies. It's very easy and it's very good! I hope your family likes it as much as mine does."

Directions

  1. Crumble the ground beef into a skillet over medium heat; add onion, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir the ground beef until no longer pink, 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Stir oats into beef mixture to coat in beef drippings. Pour beef stock over beef mixture; bring to a boil, place cover on the skillet, and reduce heat to low. Cook at a simmer until the oats are cooked, about 30 minutes.
  3. Stir Worcestershire sauce through the beef mixture to serve.

The texture was a little weird and the flavor was different. The worchestershire sauce really gave it flavor. I used quick cook oats instead though.

I substituted Fat Tire Ale for the beef broth and soy sauce for the Worchestershire (out of necessity, not out of of creativity, and I loved it. Ate it over mashed turnips.

This was a good place to start, but it was fairly bland. I added a couple of minced garlic cloves, and a lot more pepper. I also had to add about 1/2 cup of water 15 or so minutes into simmering because there was almost no liquid left and the oats were still hard.

I made this because my husband requested oatmeal for dinner and I didn't want "same old, same old". I followed the directions but had to add a 1/2 cup of water. It is a bland dinner, though with the right spices it would be REALLY good!! As it is, it wasn't so bad on it's own. The old man liked it! :) It definitely leaves room for improvement! I served this with sweet peas.
