Brasato al Chianti
The rules of my diet - stay of the SOFA (Sugar, Oils, Flour and Alcohol). Alcohol is all but essential to this meal and together with a big serving of beef the calories turn in at 560 calories before adding potatoes (175 calories for the boulangere potatoes shown in the illustration). Nevertheless many versions of this dish use thickening AND oil to brown the meat (dipped in flour) AND oil again to soften the veg and so that would add at least another 250 calories. So take heart from that and from the excellent4½ portions of over5aday per serving. Best to go light on the calories for the rest of the day and enjoy!
Counts as an Over5days recipe on the Pro52diet.
