Trust me, this is much tastier than you'd imagine.
Dice an onion and fry in butter until soft.
Lob in a pack of beef mince and brown evenly, breaking up the mince as you go.
Move the mince to the sides of the pot leaving a pool of juice in the middle, and stir in about 2 dessert spoons of Marmite, then mix into the mince/onion.
Mix in about a teaspoon of paprika and 2 beef stock cubes. The mince will become sticky. Then add about 250ml water and 2 tablespoons of gravy granules, and simmer for a few minutes.
Great with mash or on a jacket spud.
