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. :-)))
