Slimming World Beef Stroganoff With Philadelphia
A delicious take on beef stroganoff that is mushroom free and so creamy you will be shocked that it is Syn Free on Slimming World.
Thinly peel and slice the onion into long strips.
Cut the beef into long strips too, removing any visible fat as you prep.
Place the pasta, beef, onion into the Instant Pot inner pot.
Add to it 500ml of warm water and stir well with a wooden spoon.
Place the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 15 minutes on manual pressure.
Manually release pressure when it beeps and place the Instant Pot on the keep warm setting.
Stir in the seasoning and the Philadelphia cream cheese.
Serve while still warm.
I would say this was enough to feed four of you a big portion each. But when we had it we had enough for five of us plus a little left over, so it depends how much you eat! I used two packs of 300g of beef frying steak. I call it frying steak as its incredibly thin steak that takes a minute to fry in a pan.
It can also be tough to chew, but thanks to the Instant Pot comes out as tender as fillet steak. You can use any cut of beef you like, this is just our personal choice. I have measured the balance of pasta to liquid several times and found that for the best results you need 2/3 water to pasta. I placed the pasta into cups as I measured it and filled 3 cups with pasta which worked out at 300g.
Then I added 2 cups of water which is 500ml. You need this balance otherwise the pasta will stick to the bottom or too much and you will have to drain your pasta before adding the cheese, which is annoying when it can all be cooked at once in the Instant Pot. I also found that it didn’t need beef stock as when I flavoured the water it tasted too strong and lost its cheesy flavour.
If you are on Slimming World this recipe works out Syn Free just using ¼ of a HEA for the Philadelphia. Of course, if you would rather have mushrooms then just swap the onions for mushrooms and cook for the same times.
