    Dont know if this has been posted before but I'll post it anyway, i made it today and it was lovely, i used about a quarter of tinned tomatoes instead of passata and i also left the stock and cornflour out to save on syns, and it was still delicious! If you add the cornflour to stock it still works out at only 3.5 syns for the lot.


    Pork or chicken breast or Beef
    1 onion
    1 carrot
    1/2 carton of passata
    3 tbsp sweetener
    3 tbsp malt vinegar
    Chicken stock to cover
    1 tbsp Cornflour (3.5 Syns)
    Dry fry meat and onions. Add passata. Mix sweetner and vinegar and add to pan. Pour over Chicken stock. Add a little liquid to the cornflour and stir in.
    Cook for 5 mins then added carrot (grated) Cook for a further 5 mins until thickened.

    I have just made this for lunch and had a sneak taste. It's fab! I didn't bother with the cornflour, but added some tinned pineapple @ 2.5 syns for 100g.

    If you do need to thicken the sauce then powdered mashed potato sprinkled in to sauce will do the trick.

    Thanks for this. Is the chicken stock free then? I do whole roast chickens and then boil the bones - is that still free?

    Tried this last night, with diced pork and red peppers. Absolutely delicious!!!!! Everyone loved it!!!!! (I also added a chopped red chilli (seeds removed!!!), a little grated ginger and a few shakes of soy sauce.)

    If you are reading this and are thinking.....should I?......Just make it. You won't be disappointed. If you are still unsure, make the sauce separately (I did). So simple.

    Your stock should be free as long as there's no fat in it

    This is bubbling away on my hob as we speak, I gave in and added some cornflour because I think I put too much stock in but had a sneaky taste and.... wow! I am very shocked I thought the 4tbs of vinegar and sweetener would be strange. Definitely not strange though, just scrummy!
