To give you a taste of what to expect from our new Slimming World recipe book, we’re sharing one of the mouth-watering recipes you’ll find inside – chow kow steak.

We’ve given this Chinese takeaway dish a slimming twist to create a fab fakeaway that’s packed with flavour. You’ll enjoy tender steak strips smothered in a tangy sauce and served on a bed of crunchy pak choi – and it’ll be on the table in just 15 minutes. And while it’s quick to make, our sizzling stir-fry is definitely no flash in the pan – once you get a taste, you’ll want to make it again and again.

Slimming World chow kow steak

ready in 15 minutes
serves 4

What you need:

low-calorie cooking spray
4 large pak choi heads, stalks and leaves separated
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2.5cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and shredded
2 tsp vegetable bouillon powder
750g lean sirloin steak, visible fat removed, cut into cubes
sliced red chilli, to serve (optional)

For the sauce:

1 roasted red pepper in brine from a jar, drained
1 tsp tomato purée
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp dark soy sauce or tamari
1 tbsp oyster sauce

What you do:

1. First, put all the sauce ingredients, plus 5 tbsp cold water, in your food processor and blitz to a smooth sauce. Set aside.

2. Spray a non-stick wok or large frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Add the pak choi stalks, garlic, ginger and bouillon powder and stir-fry for 3 minutes, then add the pak choi leaves and cook for 1 minute or until just tender. Tip into a shallow serving dish and cover to keep warm. Wipe the pan with kitchen paper.

3. Spray the pan with more low-calorie cooking spray, add the steak and stir-fry for 4 minutes, then transfer to a bowl.

4. Add the sauce to the pan and bring to a rapid simmer. Add the steak to the sauce and heat through, tossing to coat well. Spoon the meat and sauce into the middle of the pak choi dish and scatter over the sliced chilli, if using. Serve hot.
