Beef mince, which is the same thing as ground beef, has been ground or minced and can be of varying fat contents and come from different parts of the cow. The simplest way to cook minced beef is on the stovetop, and then it can be added to sauces, stews or soups. As with all ground meats, it's important to cook it thoroughly.

Preheat a skillet over medium high heat. When it is warm, add the minced beef. Use a spoon or spatula to break it up into an even layer in the skillet.

Use your spatula to stir the beef around while it cooks, to ensure it cooks evenly. Lower the heat if the fat begins to splatter.

Cook the minced beef over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes or until no pink remains.

Turn off the heat and use the slotted spoon to remove the beef from the skillet, setting it aside. Discard any fat left behind. Add salt and pepper to taste.
