I’ve been dying to try out this recipe as it looked mouth-wateringly good in the Jamie’s Comfort Food book (click here). I’ve neglected this book since starting Slimming World as a lot of the food in it is pretty decadent, but when I looked again at this recipe I realised that it’s actually very Slimming World friendly! I made a couple of small adjustments but it makes a gorgeous, rich meal with very few syns.

Instructions

  • Put the brisket into the pan and sear all over for 10 minutes, turning to ensure all sides are browned.
