Heart warming beef and veggie stew with a hint of cinnamon, served with dinner rolls and delicious chive butter.
1. Set the oven to 200°C. Heat a large, deep pan with oil over high heat. Add beef mince, cook for 3 minutes, breaking up lumps with a wooden spoon.

2. Add diced vegetables, cinnamon quill, and stock paste. Pour in tomato sugo along with 2 x amount of water (2 jars). Semi-cover and simmer for 15 minutes, stir occasionally.

3. Grate and add zucchini to stew (see notes).

4. Mash 75g butter with a fork (see notes) and combine with finely chopped chives (to taste) and 1/2 tbsp olive oil. Season with salt.

5. Warm the bread rolls in the oven for 5 minutes.

6. Season stew well with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with warm rolls and chive butter.

Peel the zucchini prior to grating if you want to hide from the kids.
Grate butter to soften quickly. If you don’t have time to make the chive butter, just serve rolls with plain butter and sprinkle chives on top of the stew.
Top with some grated cheddar or any leftover parmesan cheese!
No beef option - beef mince is replaced with chicken mince. Add 1-2 tbsp tomato paste if you like, for a deeper flavour.
