    Hi,

    I think this should be free on EE but please confirm. I just got my son a portion from our local shop and thought oh I might be allowed that so asked the girl and she said there is
    Steak pieces
    potatoes and veg
    Beef stock cubes
    Soy sauce

    in it would this be free on EE ?

    You need to be sure that all visible fat was taken off the meat and that the meat was lean in the first place too.

    It's tricky but unless it's made in front of you, you never can tell hun.

    And I suspect that they will have used some sort of fat when cooking the meat, which would mean it would no longer be free.

    Tins of Irish stew aren't very high in syns on either plan but on Ee you take the lower syn value. M&S one is 2.5syns a can and Tesco is 3 syns a can.(I love Irish stew as a cupboard standby)

    As your one is fresh it might be a bigger portion. To be sure I'd allow a couple of syns incase.
