The kitchen’s full of cheer again……!
Good morning everyone and welcome back to Tasty Tuesday. Apologies once again for the lack of a posting last week but as you would imagine, with Gastroenteritis, the last thing you want to do or even can do is stand and cook food…!
Still, we are back today (being a Tuesday) and hope you like what I have on offer for you… 🙂
So what shall we cook today then?
Well how does Beef Stroganoff sound?
Okay then, lets get to it!!!
- Beef Fillet 175gms thinly sliced
- Olive Oil
- Button Mushrooms 75gms thinly sliced
- Small Onion thinly sliced
- Creme Freche 1/2 Fat 100mls
- 1/2 a Lemon Gentle squeeze
- 1 Teaspoon Hot Smoked Paprika
- Parsley Fresh finely chopped sprinkle
- Cracked Black Pepper
- Pappardelle 40gms
This dish will serve two Bariatric patients or one person with a sensible appetite.
So how do we make it??
It’s super simple so just watch this.
Take a pan of water, add a little salt and bring to boil, then add the Pappardelle.
Whilst this cooks, take the fillet of beef and slice very finely.
Put some oil in a wok and get it hot just enough before it starts to smoke, then put the sliced beef in and cooked quickly but not all of the way through.
Once cooked, remove the beef from the pan and put to one side.
Turn the pan down and let the oil cool for a short while whilst you finely slice the onion and the button mushrooms.
Add these to the oil that has now cooled a little and gently heat with a teaspoon of the Hot Smoked Paprika.
Once these are cooked, turn the heat down and add the Creme Freche stirring all the while to stop it from becoming separated.
Once this has settled, add the beef back into the mixture and stir well.
Then add the finely chopped parsley, also add the cracked black pepper.
Stir well to blend the flavours and add the gentle squeeze of lemon
Then serve with now cooked Pappardelle
A very healthy and super tasty meal that takes but minutes to make.

This days food was good considering I was very busy with the long walk. I know I had the same thing for lunch as I did for evening meal but to be honest I had made too much of it and when your appetite is as small as mine you struggle to get through it unless you double up the portions in the same day!
As I had said in previous posts I would be back at my Power-walking this week and absolutely did so yesterday, smashing into my previous best efforts. I started the day with a gentle walk with Archie the Dog as shown in the screen shot below.
This was followed up a little later in the day with a power walk of my own when I left the dog at home to see how well I could do. According to the screenshot, not too bad I think….
This gave me a Polar H7 reading of over 350 cals burnt.
Not bad for what should have effectively been a rest day. Today I am back in the gym so expect a nice new load of information to follow in my next post… 😉
The Jawbone Up2 reading was well over the 10,000 daily steps so I was also very happy with that. It appears I am getting my Mojo back in this area of my life, lets hope it starts to transfer to the rest of it….
Stay out of the fridge.
