Nobody in my family can remember how this dish originated or who came up with the recipe. We had it once a week all through my childhood, and it’s named after the street we finally settled in after years of living in different communes. There is a Danish classic with minced (ground) meat called million beef, so maybe our family elaborated that recipe and mixed in the flavours of the world.

It’s easy to make and, although this will serve 8, I recommend making it for 4 and eating it the following day as well, because it tastes even better then.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
200g beetroot
200g carrots
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 tablepoons hot madras curry powder
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1kg minced beef
2 leeks, sliced and rinsed
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
chopped flat-leaf parsley
brown or basmati rice
mango chutney
natural yogurt

Method

  1. Peel the beetroot (beet) and carrots. Cut the beetroot into small cubes and slice the carrots. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan and add the curry powder and garlic. Sauté for a few minutes, then add the minced (ground) beef and stir well so the beef separates. Let it simmer for 10 minutes, then add the leeks, carrots and beetroot and let it simmer for 5 more minutes.
  2. Season to taste with salt and pepper and scatter some chopped parsley on top. Serve with rice, mango chutney and yogurt.
