I hope you all had a lovely and chocolate free Easter.... No, who am I kidding, I love chocolate but I kept it to a minimum this year. My mam and sister both got me a plant each :) I was delighted. I am obsessed with flowers. My mam also got me the mini lindt bunnies that are only 3 syns each so I have been rationing them for the week haha. I am trying to see how long the 6 will last but it's not looking good for those poor bunnies.
So a quick update on my weight loss. I lost half a pound this week. I was a bit gutted to be honest because I was hoping for 2 and a half pound but not to worry, I still am down which is great. I am pushing for the 2 pounds for this week and that will be 2 stone in 12 weeks which I can hardly believe myself.
So I posted a picture this week of mine and Christopher version of SW Chilli Beef and so many people wanted to know how to make it so I thought I would share it with you today.
You can add any veggies of your choice but this is our preference. Here is the original recipe but we tailored it to our taste. Chris likes to have his with nachos and this week for a change I had mine on an iceberg lettuce leaf and it was delightful.
Now I will share with you how we made ours.
Firstly we browned of 95% fat free lean mince in garlic and added onions. In a separate pan we added all the veggies, chillis, peppers, mushrooms and once they were cooked we added kidney beans and a tin of chopped tomatoes. We seasoned with salt, pepper, cumin, chilli flakes and Worcestershire sauce and then mixed the mince mixture in with it. We then added a pint of beef stock to the mixture and a cup of rice. Next bring it to the boil then turn the heat down and allow to simmer while the rice cooks. We then transferred the chilli beef to a pyrex dish, topped with Low Low cheese and stuck it in the oven till the cheese melted and turned golden brown.
After all your hard work the only thing left to do is sit down and enjoy your homemade chilli beef. I really hope you give it a go, it is one of my favourite meals and something myself and Chris love cooking together.
