I got this recipe from the Weight Watchers Spicy and Speedy cookbook. The recipe uses beef but I had pork which I thought would be nice instead. It’s so easy, it’s hard to call it cooking. The recipes states that you should use 2 chillies, I chickened out and only added one, I should have added 2. As a result of not adding 2 chillies, I didn’t really get an intense flavour so I ended up adding some hot sauce just to give it a kick. Probably, if I was making it again I would do the same, i.e. one chilli and some hot sauce but that’s entirely up to you.
Takes 15 minutes
4 1/2 points (if using beef)
Low fat cooking spray
200g lean rump steak or pork
2 garlic cloves, sliced
2 large red chillies, deseeded and chopped finely
1 teaspoon paprika
1 x 300g pack fresh mixed stir fry vegetables
100g passata with onion and garlic
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 x teaspoon hot sauce (if you like it hot ;-))
1. Heat a non stick wok until very hot and spray with low fat cooking spray.
2. Add the beef and stir fry for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the garlic and chillies and cook for a further minute, stirring.
3. Add the paprika and stir fry vegetables and cook for another 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the hot sauce if you are using it at this point. Pour in the passata and 100 ml cold water. Bubble for 1-2 minutes until sauce has thickened.
4. Squeeze over the lemon juice and serve immediately.
