As I am now on my countdown to my weeks holiday in the sun I am now on the healthy low fat, low calorie options. The one thing I don’t want to do is compromise on flavour, this recipe is BIG on flavour but so low calorie it’s great.

Serves 2 Approx 240 cals, 7g fat, (1.5g saturated), 16g carbs

250g Scottish Stewing Steak

250ml beef stock

1 tbsp sundried tomato paste

1 tbsp gravy granules

 

1. Preheat oven to 180 deg.

2. Brown steak cubes in a non stick pan until browned. (Save juices and add to stock for extra flavour)
