Simple tasty mince

Getting our eldest to eat is always a struggle, I rely heavily upon his meals I know he will enjoy. Tonight we had a small breakthrough and who knows if he will eat it again. But I thought I would share for anyone else with children who have special needs and major texture issues.
Today shock horror I ran out of chopped tomatoes,  I first of all was shocked at how such a thing could even happen. This meant I had to think fast this is what I did and it was eaten and I mean forked into his mouth as I watched in amazement. I only cooked a small amount for the boys but it's easy to double or even triple up.

Simple Tasty Mince

1/4 finely chopped red onion
1/2 clove garlic finely chopped 
100g minced beef
2tsp honey
2tsp paprika
100ml beef stock

The method is so simple fry the onion and mince until the mince has browned then add the garlic so it foes not burn finally add the honey, paprika and beef stock. Simmer for about 20 mins until you have the mince with a small amount of thickened sauce and serve with pasta. We of course severed them separately and not touching. Grate a little Parmesan over or as we do grate some into a small bowl and serve so it can be added as desired.

This is quite a sweet mince dish that's also savoury but seems to hit the spot.
