2 – 3 T (30 – 45 ml) canola oil
500 g lean beef mince
2 t (10 ml) Ina Paarman’s Brown Gravy Powder or Roast Onion Soup & Gravy Powder
2 medium onions, finely chopped
½ t (2,5 ml) Ina Paarman’s Green Onion Seasoning
200 g mushrooms, sliced

Heat a heavy based frying pan. Add the oil. When shimmering, add the mince. Break it up with a fork, cook while stir-frying over high heat, until the mince becomes crumbly. Sprinkle Brown Gravy Powder over, stir it in. Spoon mince out of pan and keep on one side.
Add a little more oil to the pan and add the onions seasoned with Green Onion Seasoning. Stir-fry over medium heat until golden and soft. Add the mushrooms to the onions, turn the heat up to high and sauté the mushrooms until just glazed and beginning to wilt. Stir in undiluted Liquid Stock.
Add cooked mince. Add Chutney, lemon juice and water. Simmer slowly with a lid on for 10 minutes. Season mixture with Garlic Pepper Seasoning, to taste.
Serve with rice, mashed potatoes or polenta accompanied by seasonal vegetables.
