Ingredients

Calorie controlled cooking spray

5 spray(s)

Beef stewing steak, lean, raw

500 g, cut into chunks

Onion(s)

1 large, chopped

Carrots, raw

2 medium, cut into chunks

Leek

2 medium, sliced

Vegetable stock cube(s)

1½ cube(s), beef, make up to 700ml with hot water

Potato(es), Raw

400 g, cut into chunks

Peas, fresh or frozen

50 g, (thawed if frozen)

Parsley, fresh

2 tablespoons, chopped

Salt

1 pinch, and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Heat cooking spray in a large saucepan then add the stewing steak a little at a time, so that it sears and browns.
  2. Add the onion, carrots, leeks and stock. Season with a little salt and pepper. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered for 2 hours. Check the level of liquid occasionally adding more stock if needed.
  3. When the meat is tender add the potatoes and cook them until tender – about 20 minutes. Stir the peas into the stew and cook gently for another 3-4 minutes. Serve sprinkled with chopped fresh parsley.
