  • 500gm diced beef
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • _ cup Olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon coriander seed (or ground)
  • 1 tablespoon cumin seed (or ground)
  • 1 tablespoon dried chilli
  • 1 long red chilli, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • _ onion, finely diced
  • _ bunch basil
  • _ bunch coriander
  • _ cup roasted peppers,
  • sliced (optional)
  • 1 tin chickpeas
  • 750ml Tomato Passata
  • 500ml Chicken stock or water
  • 500gm Spaghetti, broken into smaller pieces


  1. Heat pot to a moderate to high heat. Add the oil and carefully add the beef and season. Brown off the beef and then add the coriander, cumin, dried chilli, long red chilli, smoked paprika, garlic, onion, basil and coriander. Stir thoroughly and ensure that the beef is nicely coated in the seasoning and spice mix. Now you can add the peppers, chickpeas, tomato passata and the stock (or water).
  2. Simmer for 5 around minutes, and then add your spaghetti that you have already broken up into small pieces. Cook for ten to fifteen minutes, or until the pasta is perfectly al dente. Take care not to overcook the pasta, as it will make the dish gluggy and heavy
  3. Serve with crusty bread and a nice bottle of red!

Great bit of kit

We have the ozpig series 2 under a patio. Only just bought the house and the pig so we haven't got it in a specific final spot just yet. But having these extra offset and pieces helps keep smell and smoke (not that there is much using nice ironbark) definitely recommend this kit for use under a patio. Plus fast and easy postage made buying them easy as. 5 Stars

Series 2 - a genuine belter!

Series 2 - a genuine belter! Loving my series 2! During my "burning in" tests it really does belt out some heat, one of the primary reasons for the purchase. Guaging heat, I've cooked a couple of hamburgers and some stove top coffee all with great success. My only suggestion is when you've finally decided to treat yourself to a piggy, super treat yourself and get as many of the accessories as you want at the same time. You'll want to use em and I guarantee you'll go back and buy them anyway. No sell, thats a fact, so go the full hog! (thats a pun) Great service, fast post and I'm genuinely looking forward to the colder weather kicking in.

Exactly what I was looking for

- I was looking for something wood-fired and portable that I could take anywhere to boil water and cook a meal on and that could also be my home BBQ. The Pig is simpler and safer than a camp fire and a great back-up at home if everything goes down. I’ve only done BBQs so far and I’m enjoying the added wood-smoke taste. Looking forward to cooking more sophisticated meals down the track.

Big pig - loving it

We love our big pig . It’s so beautiful to sit around having the large opening and we are loving the smoker having started making beef jerky . We had a baby pig but this one is hands down the best
