Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons rice bran oil (olive oil will do if that is all you have)
  • 1.25kg gravy beef, cut into 3cm cubes
  • 2 brown onions,remove ends and papery skin then finely chopped
  • ½ cup korma curry paste
  • 750g potatoes, unpeeled and cut into 2cm cubes
  • ½ cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 2x 400g can tomatoes
  • 1 cup reduced salt beef stock
  • 1 cup frozen baby peas

It’s this easy

  • Heat half the oil in the bowl of a 7-litre slow-cooker over medium-high heat. Place some of the beef in the pan and cook the beef for 3-4 minutes or until browned all over then transfer it to a plate. Don’t put too much beef in the pan at one time otherwise it will boil and turn grey instead of brown. Continue browning all the beef in small batches.
  • Heat remaining oil in slow-cooker bowl over medium heat. Cook onion, stirring, for 3 minutes or until softened.
  • Add curry paste. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add potato, cauliflower, tomato, stock, beef, pepper and a small amount of salt. Mix everything up well.
  • Cover, turn the cooker to low and cook for 8 hours, stirring halfway through the cooking. If you don't have a slow cooker, you could place all ingredients in an oven proof dish, cover and cook in a 110°c oven.
  • Add the peas and serve with rice.

Tweaks

  • Serve topped with plain yoghurt and a sprinkle of chopped coriander.

What is healthy eating?

Eating healthy is making sure you enjoy a wide variety of foods from each of the five major food groups daily, in the amounts recommended. The five major food groups as recommended by the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating are:

  1. vegetables and legumes/bean
  2. fruit
  3. lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds, legumes/beans
  4. grain (cereal) foods, mostly wholegrain and/or high cereal fibre varieties
  5. milk, yoghurt, cheese and/or alternatives, mostly reduced fat.

Foods are grouped together because they provide similar amounts of key nutrients and eating a variety of foods from the list above helps to promote good health and reduce the risk of disease.

Is my diet healthy?

Dietary habits are different between people. Some people choose to follow a particular diet (i.e., Keto diet or vegan diet) while some have to make changes due to certain food restrictions or health conditions. If you want to know if what you usually eat is healthy, then do the Healthy Eating Quiz today to give you the answers in less than 10 minutes.

Why is healthy eating important?

Your HEQ score and personalised feedback report is based on the frequency and variety of healthy core foods you usually eat. This is important because no single food contains all the nutrients we need to stay healthy. Some foods are higher in nutrients than others and people who have a lot of variety in the foods they eat are more likely to be healthy and to stay healthy. In other words, if you can eat a large variety of vegetables as opposed to only 2-3 types of vegetables, the benefits are much greater. This type of diet also helps you to feel better, think better and perform better during your usual daily activities.
