This is another low-carb diet recipe. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m currently sticking to a low-carb (under 100g a day) and calorie controlled diet after getting to my heaviest ever while finishing up my PhD. This diet has been working really well for me and I’ve lost a stone in under 3 months (averaging at just over a lb a week). With this diet I’m going for slow-and-steady, rather than crash dieting, as I believe it gives more sustainable results and encourages better eating habits in the long run. I do have a day off a week to stop myself going stir crazy.
This recipe serves 2-3 people and was great served with wholegrain rice.
Fillet steak – 1lb/450g (cut into bite-sized strips)
Mushrooms – 250g (sliced)
Garlic – 4 cloves (crushed)
Olive oil – 1 tablespoon
Saint Agur (semi-soft blue cheese) – 100g
Worcestershire sauce – 2 tablespoons
Seasoning – pepper
- In a frying pan, over a medium heat, cook the mushrooms and garlic with the oil. Add a little water if it gets too dry.
- When the mushrooms are soft turn up the heat and add the sliced beef, seasoning, and Worcestershire sauce.
- When the meat is browned all over, add the cheese and a little water if the pan looks dry.
- Stir until the cheese is melted and you have a creamy sauce.
