聽METHOD

1.聽聽聽聽聽聽Stir fry the mince in its own fat in a hot heavy-bottomed pot (one that has a lid). If necessary, add a little olive oil to help the browning. Once brown, add the spices and onions and fry some more, gently, until the spices are fragrant.

2.聽聽聽聽聽聽Pour in tomatoes with liquid. Cover and simmer on low heat for 30-45 minutes.

3.聽聽聽聽聽聽Stir in kidney beans, vinegar and sugar and simmer another 15-30 minutes on low heat, stirring occasionally to prevent the beans catching on the bottom of the pot. Squash a bean 鈥 if it is creamy on your tongue, the beans are ready. Remove cinnamon sticks before serving and test the seasoning. Add more salt if necessary.
