    Diet:
    Slimming World
    2 onions
    small piece of swede
    4 carrots
    Fry Light
    567g/1lb 4oz braising steak, all visible fat removed (I used beef skirt from Asda - nicer cheaper cut of meat!)
    1 level tablespoon tomato puree (as dish serves 4..negligible)
    1 bouquet garni
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    freshly chopped parsley, to garnish
    1 1/5 pints of hot water mixed with 2 tbsp Bovril (beef)
    method

    1. Peel the onions. Heat a large pan sprayed with Fry Light, add the onions and fry for 5 minutes until browned. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
    2. Slice the carrots and swede, place in the pan with the steak, tomato puree, bouquet garni and 852ml/1½ pints water with bovril. Cover and simmer for 1½ hours or until meat has began to break down.
    3. Add the onions to the pan with the and simmer for a further 20 minutes. Season to taste, sprinkle with parsley and serve.
    Tip: You can add mushrooms if you want to this as mentioned on the SW website, but I decided against.

    Enjoy!

    As an EE alternative, you could add potatoes and parsnip to it too...just had a thought!
