What is Mince? (and other questions regarding the Greek version of Moussaka)

wallabunny | Jun 30, 2009 08:13 PM

So I recently some of my friends came back from Greece and got me this book called "Greek Cookery and Wines". I want to make the moussaka in this book but I can't figure out what they mean by "mince." Is it:

1. Seasoned ground beef (if so, what recipe should I use to make this mince?)

or

2. Simply ground beef (if so, what type should I use?)

As this may help, the ingredients in this recipe are as follows:

2 kilos of large round aubergines
1 kilo of mince
1/2 cup of oil
2 large onions
5 ripe tomatoes
1/2 cup of dry white wine (would Sauvignon Blanc work for this?)
salt, pepper
grated kefalotiri cheese (should I not be able to find this, what else is suitable for this sort of dish?)
oil for frying
2-3 portions of white sauce [bechamel] (recipe for this is on another page of the book)

Thanks again!
