    So sitting in my freezer are about 10 mini beef steas that i chopped up myself.. they are not very think... and marinated in lemon, yogart, spices and tandoori masala.

    I already made a mistake cooking the beek "cubes" so i want to know how to cook there mini steaks so that they are tender rather than VERY VERY chewy.

    fire away experts!

    cheers

    What sort of cut of "beef" did you buy? Unfortunately, with beef, if it's a "cheaper" albeit lean cut, it'll take longer to cook if you want it tender... so slow cooker or pressure cooker even if that's the case.

    If they were, say, sirloin steaks, couple of minutes either side dry fried or grilled will do it...

    Hey Sona... remember that a PV day is just that... PROTEIN + veg, so don't be tempted to eat too much veg and too little protein. It is still a high protein diet, so keep the protein levels up (something I have to watch myself on PV days!!)

    I think Sona's working out a weekly meal plan she can repeat each week until September...

    Remember some weeks will include 3PPs and some 4... nature of the beast when alternating.

    But I admit that I don't understand what you've typed above...

    Trust me, that sort of food won't get you pregnant!!

    I do the food plan before the shopping, but Vicky's right Sona... you'll get sooooo bored eating the same stuff every week. Are you mega busy? I don't know whether you work, have 57 kids etc., but ...?

    when i had my boy we didnt really do the homework and just kinda did it all the time.. this time ive been tracking my ovulation for months so that we can do the business when its effective!! lolz good luck to both of us!! hehe

    I hope to do the "diet" untill i get preg and then try a healthier for baby version of it. Dont want to pile on too much weight if i get preg and dont want to put off getting preg to lose all the weight first!

    Sona - no veg only meals... it's a high protein diet!
    I've recently got into stirfries again so I had stirfried veggies next to my meat Saturday night... made a nice change... also made a chicken + veg soup... another good way of taking in some vitamins!

    I don't know anything about quorn sausages EXCEPT that I read somewhere that they're ok on all phases as a meat substitute for vegetarians. For meat eaters, I guess you'd need to check out the ingredients - normally they'd put carbs in the sausages, no? (Leastwise we do when we make our own!)

    lmao Sona ;) ;)

    Quorn, a mycoprotein, like TVP is not mentioned in the book. However it is also a high protein food that is low in carbohydrateI think they are classed as protein. (thats from google)
