Beef with plums

Preparation time: 20 minutes.
Cooking time: 10 minutes.
Calories: 315 per portion.

ingredients

serves 2
1 tablespoon oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 - 3 pieces beef for beef olives, cut into thin slivers
2 - 3 dessert plums, stoned and cut into slices
2 - 3 mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon sherry
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons cornflour, blended with 2 tablespoons water
chopped spring onion tops, to garnish

method

1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the onion and fry for 2 minutes. Stir in the garlic, then push the mixture to one side of the pan.

2. Tilt the pan to let the juices run out of the onion and over the base. Scatter in the meat strips and stir-fry over a high heat for 2 minutes, until the meat is evenly coloured.

3. Lower the heat and add the plums and mushrooms. Continue to stir-fry for 1 minute, then stir in the sherry, soy sauce and blended cornflour. Cook, stirring, until the sauce has thickened.

4. Garnish with spring onions and serve with wholemeal tagliatelle and green vegetables.

The beef used for beef olives is sold rolled up in thin raw slices. Imported plums are often on sale outside the short home season.
