Week 83 Weigh In / Recipe: Corned Beef Stew

Hello, and welcome back for this week’s weigh in update video!

This week’s challenge was to have fish four times, which I did. It was kind of an odd one for me, because I don’t usually eat much fish, but I did it anyway. Next week’s challenge is to do 30 minutes of Body Magic (i.e. exercise) every day – this one will be a doddle, because I am ALWAYS on the go – actually, I picked up another Platinum Body Magic certificate in group today (yup, that’s the top Body Magic award, and I have multiple!).

Anyway, here’s the video, so you can see how I did this week…

The recipe for the lemon curd/pudding I mentioned in the video can be found HERE.

Key:
F = Free food (eat as much as you like)
S = Speed food (these should make up at least a third of your meal)
P = Protein free food (eat as much of these as you like!)
HEa = Healthy Extra A (a daily allowance of dairy produce)
HEb = Healthy Extra B (a daily allowance of a product with fibre)
# = a number denotes roughly how many syns are in foods used

1 – 1.5 syns per portion

Ingredients:
Amounts depend on how many portions you want to make

  • Prince’s Reduced Fat Corned Beef (3 syns per can)
  • Potatoes (F)
  • Swede (S)
  • Carrot (S)
  • Onion (S)
  • Beef Oxo cubes (F)
  • Water (F)
  • Smash – optional (F)

Directions:

  • Chop up the veg and the corned beef, and chuck it all in the slow cooker.
  • Add enough water to just cover everything.
  • Crumble a couple of beef Oxo cubes into the slow cooker, and give everything a good stir.
  • Switch on your slow cooker and leave it all day (if starting it in the morning ready for your evening meal).
  • If you want it a little thicker, add a spoonful or two of Smash and stir it through before serving.

I serve mine with extra speed veg – usually broccoli, cauliflower, baby corn, and brussel sprouts, but you can just as easily eat it as it is, for a hearty, warming meal.

One can of Prince’s reduced fat corned beef is three syns, so if you use one can for two portions, they’ll be 1.5 syns each, or if you stretch it to three portions, they’ll be 1 syn each. I tend to make it with more swede, carrot, and onion than potato, just to keep the speed element high, in case I don’t have time to add extra veg on the side.
