Beef Kheema

Beef Kheema is an indian mince curry that is delicious with Naan. The meat we used is minced aged rump steak with the fat removed making it healthy and tender.

This dish if cooked without the addition of too much liquid could even be used as a pie filling.

Note : Rump steak contains only 5.5g of fat per 100g, little more than 1 teaspoon. NZ grass-fed beef is very lean with hardly any fat between the muscles, making excess fat easy to trim and providing a very low-fat, high-iron protein. Quoted from NZ Healthy Food magazine November 2006.

Tip : You will be able to get a leaner and healthier mince if you buy a piece of steak and mince your own. Homemade mince will have far less liquid and fat oozing out as you cook it. Bought mince usually have a higher fat content.
