Slow-Braised Beef and Barley
Here, beef is simmered until meltingly tender while nourishing pot barley thickens the gravy to make a hearty casserole and juniper berries add a distinctive flavor. Serve slow-braised beef and barley with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable, such as green beans or spring greens.
Stir-Fried Beef with Mango
Colourful stir-fried beef with mango is bursting with fresh flavours and contrasting textures. The dressing is oil-free, so although a little oil is used to stir-fry the beef, the dish is still very light in fat. No extra salt is needed because of the spicy dressing and the saltiness of soy sauce.
Sunday Special Roast Beef
Succulent roast beef, crispy roast potatoes and root vegetables, and feather-light, old-fashioned Yorkshire puddings make one of the best loved of Sunday lunches. This healthy version of roast beef will please everyone, even the traditionalists.
Seared Beef with Garden Vegetables
A scrumptious sirloin is flash-cooked to seal in all its fabulous flavours. The seared beef is then surrounded by plenty of fresh garden vegetables. Sirloin is among the leanest cuts of steak, and trimming away any visible fat before eating makes it even better.
Stir-Fried Beef with Fine Noodles
Tangy tamarind and lemongrass infuse a Thai-inspired sauce for tender strips of stir-fried beef and fine rice noodles. With snow peas and baby corn adding all-important vegetable balance, this is a quick and easy dish that is a meal in itself.
Beef in Red Wine and Brandy
Long, slow cooking gives this traditional beef casserole its inimitable flavour. The cooking liquid is reduced simply by removing the casserole lid, resulting in a wonderfully aromatic red wine and brandy sauce that glazes the beef and vegetables.
