    • 500g lean beef, such as braising steak, trimmed of visible fat
    • Low-calorie cooking spray
    • 1 large onion, diced
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 carrots, sliced
    • 2 celery stalks, sliced
    • 200g mushrooms, sliced
    • 400g canned chopped tomatoes
    • 400ml beef stock (made with a stock cube)
    • 2 tablespoons tomato puree
    • 2 bay leaves
    • Salt and pepper, to taste
    • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)



      1. Preheat the oven to 160°C (320°F).
      2. Cut the lean beef into bite-sized chunks and season with salt and pepper.
      3. Spray a large oven-safe casserole dish with low-calorie cooking spray and place it over medium-high heat.
      4. Brown the beef in batches, transferring each batch to a plate once browned.
      5. In the same casserole dish, add the diced onion, minced garlic, sliced carrots, sliced celery, and sliced mushrooms. Cook for about 5 minutes until they begin to soften.
      6. Return the browned beef to the casserole dish.
      7. Add the chopped tomatoes, beef stock, tomato puree, and bay leaves. Stir well to combine.
      8. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then cover the casserole dish with a lid.
      9. Transfer the dish to the preheated oven and cook for approximately 2 to 2.5 hours, or until the beef is tender and the flavors have melded together.
      10. Check the seasoning and adjust with salt and pepper if needed.
      11. Serve the braised beef hot, garnished with fresh chopped parsley.
