Braised Beef Provencale


I recently used herbs de Provence for the first time and fell in love with the flavor. So, of course, I began looking for other ways to work it into meals. This was a great dish for it. The roast beef, braised with fennel, tomato, carrots and onion, combined with the herbs very well. Be warned, don't overdue the orange zest, it can quickly overwhelm the other flavors.

I also liked serving it over noodles instead of more traditional mashed potatoes. We used No Yolks to try to keep it lighter. It's a big recipe, so we cut up the meat and just mixed it all together to make a hot-dish (Minnesota-speak for casserole) for another meal.

Each serving of the meat, veggies and sauce is only 256 calories with 15 grams of fat and two of fiber.

Let's eat!

Deal of the day: If you can't resist spices, like me, you need this J.K. Adams 32-Jar Maple-Wood Spice Carousel. It's on my wish list and is nearly 1/3 off right now.

About Me
I love food! But I let that love get the best of me and my weight ballooned to more than 300 pounds. My wife and I joined Weight Watchers and, over a three-year period, I lost 100 pounds. However, I refused to give up on the foods I love, from Alfredo to cheeseburgers. I set out to find ways to eat almost anything I wanted, but to prepare it in a healthy way. Now, I'm sharing my love of food and cooking with others interested in living a healthy lifestyle.
