SW recipe: Rich beef and pumpkin curry

Serves 4
Ready in 1 hour 20 mins


Low-calorie cooking spray
600g stewing steak, all visible fat removed, cut into chunks
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped, plus extra to garnish (optional)
2 tsp finely grated fresh root ginger
4 tsp medium curry powder
800ml hot beef stock
6 tbsp tomato purée
1 cinnamon stick
1 star anise
600g pumpkin flesh, cut into chunks
Juice of ½ lime
350g dried basmati rice, rinsed and drained
200g baby spinach leaves, roughly chopped


Place a large, heavy-based pan sprayed with low-calorie cooking spray over a high heat. Season the beef and fry it in batches for 2-3 minutes on each side, until browned all over. Transfer to a plate using a slotted spoon and set aside. Spray the pan with more low-calorie cooking spray and reduce the heat to medium. Add the onion and stir-fry for 6-8 minutes, or until lightly golden. Add the garlic, chillies and ginger and cook for a further minute. Add the curry powder and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.

Return the beef to the pan with the stock, tomato purée, cinnamon stick and star anise. Bring to the boil, cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 35 minutes, or until the beef is tender. Season, add the pumpkin and cook for a further 15-20 minutes, or until tender.

Stir in the lime juice and remove the cinnamon stick and star anise. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to the packet instructions, adding the spinach for the last 2-3 minutes, then drain. Garnish the curry with a little extra chopped chilli if you like and serve with the spinach rice alongside.

Slimming Tip 1 – Don’t go hungry

Slimming Tip 2 – Fill up on Super Slimming Foods 
Now no food has the power to actually slim you down, but the foods with the least calories for the most amount of filling power will cut your calorie intake without you even realising.
These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.
