Instead of covering the mince with the water, brown the mince first and pour of any fat before adding the water then continue as the recipe says.

Hi Christine
Thanks for sharing this old favourite. Someone else has shared a similar recipe - so that's why I added the word 'recipe' to yours - so it won't have the same page name.
Thank you
