  • Café-Style Cottage Pie

    A family friendly cottage pie − make the plain one for the kids, or add the chorizo and wine for the adults. Smiles all round!

  • Burgers and Barbecue Sauce

    A brilliant barbecue sauce turns burgers into something special. Make a batch and store in the fridge – then all you have to do is throw the burger patties on the barbie!

  • Burritos

    Kids love these. Let them fill and wrap their own burritos – messy, but fun!

  • BLAT Burger, Wattie's Style

    Burgers are great fun food, and teenagers love them. These ones − with salad and super easy avocado spread − are the perfect weekend BLAT...

  • Beef Quesadillas

    Quesadillas are all the rage. A Mexican-style toasted sandwich with all your favourite flavours for an easy casual meal or snack. The mince is not too spicy, so all the family can enjoy it − and if you like it hotter, just add your favourite chilli sauce into your quesadilla.

  • Beef Stroganoff

    Here's a recipe with a twist − a rich beef casserole with the addition of smoked paprika. Finish with lite cream for full flavour without the guilt.

  • Beef and Salsa Bean Pancake Pie

    Tasty and much healthier than normal pastry − not to mention easier and less messy. Easy as pie!

  • Beef and Pineapple Satay

    Satay sauce is one of the greatest Indonesian inventions of all time! The creamy, nutty sauce combines wonderfully well here with stir-fry beef and pineapple.

  • Beef and Mushroom Hash Brown Slice

    Here's a neat way to turn two family favourites − Wattie's Hash Browns and Wattie's Condensed Vegetable Soup − into a fabulous pie.

  • Beef and Beans

    Perfect for tacos, wrapping in burritos or spooning over a baked potato. Nothing will warm you up quicker than a hearty beef and bean mix like this one.

  • Beef and Bean Pies

    Cute little pies in crisp bread cases, topped with melted cheese. Great for a Sunday night tea – or any time there’s a crowd of kids to feed.

  • Beef and Bean Casserole

    The great thing about this casserole is that it takes very little time to prepare, and then just sits and simmers − leaving you free to chat with your guests (or help the kids with their homework!)

  • Beef and Tomato Pom Pom Casserole

    Potato Pom Poms are another Food in a Minute favourite, and a great way to top off a delicious beef casserole. For those of you that enjoy cooking in a slow cooker, this recipe can easily be adapted.

  • Beef and Chorizo Casserole with Cauliflower Mash

    The benefit of slow cooking means that you can use cheaper cuts of meat which still retain a wonderful flavour when cooked this way. Served with simple cauliflower mash, this is a warming meal to look forward to on those cooler days.

  • Barbecue Steaks with Oyster Sauce Stir-Fry

    A quick and easy marinade is always a handy recipe to have with barbecue season on its way, and this recipe also doubles as a stir-fry sauce. Spring, summer or winter, this recipe will always taste great. Check out our tips for how to cook perfect steaks, too!

  • Barbecue Mini Burger Stack

    A welcome addition to any family barbie. Build ‘em up with homemade beef mince patties, golden Wattie’s Medallions, and a liberal helping of tomato ketchup. A genuine child-pleaser!

  • Barbecue Burgers

    Burgers on the barbie! On a hot summer’s night it doesn’t get easier than this.

  • Autumn Sausages

    Nothing beats a good, hearty sausage stew on a crisp autumn night.

  • Asian Beef Kebabs

    Too easy! Marinated beef on skewers and a choice of tasty peanut or yoghurt chilli dipping sauces. On second thoughts, why choose one when you can have both?

  • American Hash Brunch

    Sometimes you just need a big start to the day – and this is it! Corned Beef, potato and kumara hash – it’s enough to keep you going all weekend.
