One of the best ways to introduce red meat is to combine it with a sweet tasting root vegetable like sweet potato.
1 leek, washed and sliced (approx 150g)
125g braising steak, cut into cubes
1 tbsp flour
275g sweet potato, peeled and chopped
100g button mushrooms, sliced
300 ml chicken stock
juice of one orange (about 120 ml)
Melt the butter in a casserole and saute the leek for about 4 minutes until softened. Roll the meat in the flour, add to the leek and sauté until browned. Add the mushrooms and sauté for one minute. Add the sweet potato, stock and orange juice. Bring to the boil and transfer to an oven preheated to 180C / 350 F/ Fan 160C for 1 ¼ (one and a quarter hours) or until the meat is tender. Blend to the desired consistency.
