Chilli Beef and Mushroom Stir Fry

I have been working on recipes that will compliment my weight watchers pro point plan. This is a chili beef and mushroom stir fry which also worked well with chicken. This has a total pro points value at 32

  • Ingredients
  • 400g    lean strips of beef                                            24pp
  • 200g    mushrooms
  • 1          medium onion
  • 200g    tinned chopped tomato
  • 8 fl oz  water
  • 1 pkt    hoisin and garlic sauce (i used Blue Dragon)  4pp
  • 3          cloves of garlic (crushed)
  • 3          pinches of chili flakes (or 1.4 tsp cayenne)
  • 1          pinch of ginger
  • 4 tsp    olive oil                                                             4pp
  • 1          large capsicum
  • salt to taste
  • Procedure:
  • Slice the mushrooms and capsicum and leave to one side
  • In a small saucepan put 8 fl oz of water, the strips of beef, salt, garlic and bring to the boil. Depending on which type of beef you bought this could be from 10 to 30 minutes. When you have brought it to the boil, lower the heat and simmer with a lid on until the meat is almost tender.
  • Put a wok on  medium heat, add the olive oil and finely sliced onions. Fry gently until the onions are transparent and just start turning brown. Using a slotted spoon take the beef from the pan and add to the onions. Allow this to fry gently for about five minutes then add the chopped tomatoes,mushrooms and capsicum. Continue frying for a further 5 minutes then add a pinch of ginger, 3 pinches of chili flakes, 6 fld oz water(including meat juice) and stir fry for 10 minutes on a low heat. Keep the wok covered at this stage.
  • After 10 minutes add the hoisin sauce, mix well and leave to simmer for 3 to 5 minuts.
  • Your stir fry is ready to serve.

As you see i have served it with rice but its also delicious served with Sharwoods medium noodles.

  • Chilli beef stir fry can be frozen.
  • This recipie can serve 4 medium portions, a weight watchers pro points of 8 pp per portion without the rice or needles
