How to make baked stuffed tomatoes with beef filling

  • To prepare baked stuffed tomatoes with beef, start heating the sunflower oil in a large casserole dish over a medium heat until hot.
  • Sweat the onion, celery and garlic for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened.
  • Increase the heat and add the beef mince to the dish, browning well all over and breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon.
  • Reduce the heat once browned and season the mixture to taste with salt, pepper, chopped parsley and the dried oregano.
  • Remove from the heat.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200°C | gas 6.
  • Arrange the main part of the tomatoes in a roasting tray.
  • Spoon the beef mixture into the main cavities of the tomatoes, then replace their tops on top of the beef.
  • Arrange the reserved insides of the tomatoes and the bay leaf and thyme sprigs in the tray.
  • Drizzle everything with the olive oil and some more seasoning.
  • Roast for 25-30 minutes until the tomatoes are soft and starting to colour on top.
  • Remove and leave the stuffed tomatoes to stand for a few minutes before serving.
