By author photo Jenny Craig Team


Serves: 1

Preparation Time: 40 Minutes


  • 3 tsp olive oil
  • ½ red onion, finely sliced
  • ½ small red capsicum, cut into strips
  • ½ garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 120g lean beef strips
  • 1 tsp salt reduced tomato paste
  • ½ cup canned tomatoes
  • Fresh oregano and parsley to taste, leaves picked
  • 2/3 cup cooked brown rice


  1. In a non-stick frying pan, heat the olive oil over a low to medium heat and add the capsicum and the red onion. Cook until softened and lightly browned, approximately 5-8 minutes.
  2. Add the beef strips, garlic and oregano if using, and cook until the beef has browned through, approximately 4-5 minutes, depending on the size of the strips.
  3. Stir in the tomato paste, cook for a minute, then add the canned tomatoes along with ¼ cup water. Cover and simmer over a low heat for 25-30 minutes, checking halfway through and adding more water if the mixture becomes a little dry. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to packet instructions.
  4. Stir the parsley through the Mediterranean beef mixture and then serve accompanied with the rice.

Dietitian Tip: Why not try a vegetarian option – swap the beef for 1 cup of black beans
