Having shown the photo of my Beef and Onion braise on the Week that was I thought I’d share the recipe with you as it’s a WeightWatchers recipe book from the One Pot Meals book which I was sent before Christmas to review.
This recipe is 7 Propoints for an extra 5 Propoints you could serve with a baked potato.
I didn’t follow the recipe exactly, I added a bottle of stout to the cooking liquor and therefore added an extra 2 Propoints per serving and where WW cook it in the oven I did mine in the slow cooker.
Beef and onion braise – WeightWatchers recipeIngredients calorie controlled cooking spray 3 small onions, cut into wedges 4 x 150g lean braising steaks trimmed of all visible fat 2 tbsps flour 400 ml beef stock 1 bottle of Stout 750 ml 300g carrots cut into thin strips 3 garlic cloves 2 tbsps Worcestershire sauce 1/2 tsp mixed herbs 350g mushrooms sliced freshly ground black pepper
Spray a large non stick pan with cooking spray add the onions and cook for 4 minutes turning to colour on all sides. Place in slow cooker
Season the steaks with black pepper add to the pan and brown on all sides only to colour not to cook. Remove and add to the slow cooker
Sprinkle over 2 tbsps of plain flour and stir well. Add the stock and stir well. Add all the remaining ingredients and stir well to amalgamate well. Add a bottle of stout if you like. Here’s my Fuller’s Black Cab – not sponsored just loved the name and look of the bottle :)
Place the lid and set on low cooking for 4 hours. Stir occasionally.
