Keeping your food interesting

If you are trying to lose weight one of the things that can make life difficult is eating the same things over and over again.

This is why it is good to try different things.

This Beef Goulash, which I adapted to be healthier than the recipe given to me by my Hungarian Uncle-in-Law, is absolutely delicious and so easy to cook so why not try it.

Ingredients

450 Grams lean stewing beef

1tsp olive oil

I tablespoon of flour

To Cook

Cut the meat into cubes then cover in the flour and season.  Add the olive oil to a pan and brown the meat for 5-6 minutes.  Remove from pan and put in a casserole dish.

Sauté the onions and garlic in the pan for 1-2 minutes then add the chopped red pepper and sauté for a further minute.

Then stir in the paprika, tomato puree, beef oxo cube and a splash of water so you can coat all the vegetables. Add the mushrooms and cook for a further minute then finally add the tin of tomatoes and stir until all mixed together.

Add all this to the casserole dish and place in an oven at 180 degrees or 160 fan and cook for approximately 2 hours.

To serve cook the pasta according to instructions divide between 4 servings plates then top with the goulash and spoon a blob of natural yoghurt to finish.

The goulash dish will freeze so if you are serving one portion each has 75 grams of pasta.
