Beef and prune stew (spicy)

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

Today I was in the mood for something spicy. I made a beef stew with chopped prunes and bell peppers to add a fruity flavour and fibre. I had my serving with a cup of cooked bulgur wheat (not included in nutritional information).

1 Serving = 1 coffee mug (280ml)

Sweet peppers (bell), 1 cup, sliced
6 Cherry Tomatoes, chopped
Onions, raw, 1 small, chopped
Lea & Perkins Worcester Sauce, 1 Tbsp
Granulated Sugar, 1 tsp
Salt, 1 tsp
4 Prunes, dried, chopped
Cayenne pepper, 1 tsp
Coriander, dried, 0.5 tsp
Garlic, 3 cloves minced
Thai Seven Shake Spice, 1 tsp
Beef, chuck, no fat, 350 grams
Red wine vinegar, 1 Tbsp
1 cup water


Cook all ingredients together for 30 minutes or till beef is tender.
Reduce liquid to form a thick sauce.
Add more water when stew becomes to dry during cooking.

    Thanks for your comments guys. I decided to use only a small amount of prunes. I did not want to overpower the stew with the prune smell and taste. It worked out well and was delicious!!

    It is so unusual to have prunes in a soup recipe. I will tell my husband about this one. He loves to cook too! His Dad was the chef in the family, just like your Mom being the good cook. Sounds really good! emoticon
Hope you are feeling better! No more AF problems I hope! emoticon

    I'll bet that smells wonderful with all those great spices. Garlic is my favorite perfume! I would never have thought of adding dried prunes to my stew. Interesting. Thanks for the recipe. emoticon
