    Can anyone recommend the best way to thicken a beef stew without being too naughty? I found some very low carb stock cubes, 0.4g per cube but need something to thicken it up, saw some kind of gum mentioned in a recipe but can't remember what it was called so cant look it up!

    same here!

    you soon learn to cook without the need for thickeners, stirfy most things then add a little dble cream/cream cheese to make a sauce.
