Gingered Beef or Lamb Casserole

by -

I recently attended a cookery demonstration day run by the fabulous Christine Bailey, a Nutritionist with over 20 years experience. She ran a course on 'cooking for clients with adrenal fatigue/CFS or M.E. So, I would like to share with you a delicious (and I tasted it myself), nutritious recipe for Gingered Beef or Lamb Casserole.

Serves 4-6

1 kg braising beef or lamb cut into chunks

Flour for dusting

Salt and pepper

Coconut oil

3 red onions chopped

3 garlic cloves crushed

1" piece of ginger grated

2 tsp cumin ground

Dash of turmeric powder

300mls red wine

300mls beef stock

300g prunes ready to eat

1 tbsp pomegranate molasses

Pomegranate seeds to decorate

Method

  1. Dust the beef in the flour and season. Heat a little coconut oil in a large casserole dish. Sear the meat until golden brown. Remove from the pan. Fry the onions, garlic and ginger for 5 minutes then add the cumin and turmeric.
  2. Return the meat to the pan and add the stock and wine. Bring to the boil, then add the prunes. Cover and simmer for 1.5 hours. Add the molasses and cook for a further 15 minutes until tender. Sprinkle over the herbs and pomegranate seeds to taste.

  • "I had been back and forth to my GP with various digestive complaints including bloating, acid reflux, alternating constipation and diarrhoea and abdominal pain. My GP prescribed me laxatives and tablets for the acid reflux. I decided I was far too young at 36 years old to be having these problems and went to Natural Solutions. Andrea assessed all of my symptoms, looked at my diet and lifestyle and came up with a detailed but not overwhelming plan for me.  I felt someone was finally listening to me. Andrea suggested I try a gluten free diet among other things and try this for a month to see how that affected my symptoms. Wow! What a difference it has made. I no longer have the above symptoms. I no longer take any medication. I have energy, I rarely get a headache and it's made a huge difference to my Fibromyalgia symptoms.  At first it seemed a little daunting to be making such a huge change to my diet but Andrea was there with lots of recipe ideas and helpful tips. Andrea also took me to the local health food shop and gave me plenty of suggestions and alternatives. I would recommend Natural Solutions to everyone. "Tanya Mitchell
