Tube Beef or Not To Beef

Tube Beef or Not Tube Beef

This is one of my favourite beef stew recipes...........it is not your typical traditional beef stew like your Mother or Grandmother use to make. If I want to shed a few pounds....I know I blah, blah, blah.......I dig out my low calorie recipes and start whipping them up. This is one of them.
This has a sort of sweet and sour taste and while it is roasting the aroma is amazing.
.........it come from a cook book called "The Looney Spoons" by the Podleski sisters Janet and Greta. They are two sisters who come from Canada and have three cookbooks out on the best seller lists and their own TV show......which is comical in a way to watch, very entertaining. What I love about their recipes is that they cut down calories and substitute items.
I know the picture doesn't do it justice and looks like a bunch of mush....but it is very yummy. :-)))

  1. My Person really just found this website and of course studied a few of the pages.
    I absolutely like the way of writing as well as how each of our articles are formatted.
    My Person saved the post in order to find that site faster in
    the future. Well I am going to inform you about a bit about our web
    site, that is certainly kind of relevant to your article. Actually it is on the
    topic of maize nutrition and its particular dangers as well as health benefits that it can have for the human body.
    Additionally, there are content which take a look at eating plans
    with no maize, which can be valuable if you are that are suffering because
    of hypersensitivity. I have in mind that the design isn’t the most suitable,
    but I the information is in depth and definitely adequate.
    In my opinion that is certainly the most important part related with a website.

    You can also find plenty of internet sites that look great,
    then again may not provide any kind of advice on it.
    Actually a few of these given advise can be not right.
    This will be threatening in relation to health related article content.
    Well, perhaps we are able to stay in interaction.

    I will probably go to your internet site on a regular basis, so please never reduce your updates.

    British is not at all my original dialect, I fairly hope you could
    interpret this feedback.
