Sizzling steaks

Steaks are ideal for the barbecue – with the added benefit that they taste just as good cooked under your kitchen grill if the weather suddenly turns. Even better, as long as they’re cooked without oil and all visible fat is removed, steaks are a Slimming World Free Food.

Our member Patrick enjoyed a sunshine supper of grilled steak served with potatoes, grilled peppers, onions and a drizzle of mushroom sauce (members can check the Syn value using the Slimming World barcode scanner).
