Cooking tips for mince

  • Choose ‘lean’ mince (less than 10% total fat) where possible.
  • Store packaged mince in the fridge and cook by the use-by date; ‘loose’ mince from the butcher is best cooked within 1–2 days. Mince can be frozen for up to 3 months.
  • Always cook mince meals all the way through.
