  • Beef Braising Steak, Lean, raw
    500 g, cut into chunks
  • Calorie controlled cooking spray
    4 spray(s)
  • Onion(s)
    2 medium, sliced
  • Garlic
    2 clove(s), crushed
  • Paprika
    ½ tablespoons, level, smoked
  • Tinned Tomatoes
    1 can(s), large, chopped
  • Beef stock cube(s)
    ½ cube(s), 300ml water
  • Peppers, All Types
    2 medium, 1 red and 1 green, each deseeded and roughly chopped
  • Butter Beans, cooked
    1 can(s), large, drained, drained and rinsed
  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C, fan 130°C, gas mark 2.
  2. Season the steak and mist a lidded flameproof casserole with the cooking spray. Brown half the steak over a medium heat and transfer to a plate. Repeat with the rest of the beef.
  3. Mist the casserole again with a little more cooking spray and cook the onions for 5 minutes, adding a splash of water, if needed, to stop them from sticking. Once softened, stir in the garlic and smoked paprika and cook for a further minute, then add the tomatoes and beef stock. Return the beef to the casserole, season and bring to a simmer. Cover and transfer the casserole to the oven to cook for 1 hour.
  4. Remove the casserole from the oven and stir in the peppers and butter beans. Replace the lid and return the casserole to the oven to cook for a further 30 minutes, or until the meat is meltingly tender and the vegetables have softened.
