    Default Red Hot Thai Beef with Cashews - WW recipe

    Ingredients
    • 480g lean topside steak, cut into thin strips
    • 3 tbs Thai red curry paste
    • cup reduced fat coconut milk
    • 2 tsp brown sugar
    • 2 tbs fish sauce
    • 1 bunch baby bok choy, stalks removed
    • red capsicum, seeded and thinly sliced
    • cup reduced fat coconut milk, extra
    • tbs cornflour
    • 30g cashew nuts, toasted
    • cup coriander leaves, chopped
    Method



    Coat a non stick frypan with cooking spray. Stirfry the beef strips until browned. Remove from the pan and set aside.


    Add Thai curry paste and coconut milk to the pan. Bring to the boil, lower heat and simmer for about 5 minutes.


    Add brown sugar and fish sauce and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the bok choy and capsicum and cook until the capsicum is softened. Combine extra coconut milk with the cornflour and stir into the mixture, cooking until the mixture boils and thickens.


    Stir in the cashew nuts and coriander.



    WW Points value: 6
    Serves: 4


    Instead of the light coconut milk I usually add Carnation light evaporated milk and about 1 tsp of coconut essence. That should take it down to about 5 points. And I'd serve it with either basmati or jasmine rice.

    Enjoy!

    My pleasure

    My Mum and I are going through all my WW cookbooks and online recipes so I have them all in a word document. That way it's easy for us to search ingredients and to get rid of all the books taking up space. And it'll make it easier to post too. I'll post some more if people are interested

    I love making special dishes. By that I mean something other than the ordinary things most families make routinely. Those are a chore to make most of the time~

    I'm the same. I love doing something a bit different. And I find weight watchers recipes are just as delish as the usual. Gone are the days of bland, low fat food. I don't have a thyroid so I have to be careful what I eat (see, it can be done Oprah) but I don't feel like I'm missing out at all. If I ate a lot of recipes with the normal fat content I'd probably be the size of a house! And now that I don't have a gallbladder I have to be doubly careful.

    But really, now if I eat something high in fat I feel revolting and bloated so I can't go back to the way I used to eat.

    I just realised last night that I missed a step when I made it. I can't edit it but I'll add the whole recicpe to the WW recipe thread now.
