Savoury mince noodles recipe

This budget savoury mince recipe is a really tasty way to feed your family and has everything in one bowl - meat, three vegetables and noodles



  • 300g minced beef
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 2 beef stock cubes
  • 2 pkts 2 minute noodles
  • 1 tbsp dried basil
  • Dash of boiling water


In a frying pan, brown the mince and onions.

Add the corn, peas and carrots.

Dissolve the stock cubes with a dash of boiling water and add this with the oregano and the 2 minute noodle favour satchets. Cook until carrots are tender.

Break up the 2 minute noodles and cook as directed.

Serve on a bed of the noodles or mix it in quickly and turn off the heat as the noodles will stick.


  • This is a great meal that is easy on the budget. It ticks all the boxes for me. A little red meat with 3 veg and some carbs in the form of noodles.
  • The best thing is that this comes in under $10.
