Prep Time 15 min

Cooking Time 1 hr 45 min


  • Cooking oil spray
  • 500g lean braising steak, diced
  • 2tsp harissa paste
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 150g button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 600ml hot reduced-salt beef stock
  • 1 small cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 3 potatoes, cubed
  • 1½tbsp cornflour
  • Finely chopped fresh parsley, to garnish


  1. Put a large heavy-based pan over a medium-high heat and spray with oil. Add the beef and cook until browned. Add the harissa paste, garlic, mushrooms and onion and fry until softened.
  2. Add the tomatoes, stock, cauliflower florets and potatoes and stir well. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer gently for 1 hr 30 min, stirring occasionally, or until the beef is cooked and tender.
  3. Just before serving, mix the cornflour with 2tbsp water in a small bowl to make a paste. Add to the stew and stir until the sauce thickens. Divide among 4 bowls, then serve garnished with parsley.
