Boom! Big Mac in a Bowl! Love Maccy D’s? Feel like you’re missing out on the big mac taste while on plan? At a whopping 13pp without fries a Big Mac quickly eats into your daily propoints values while you quickly eat into a big mac! but this Slimming World recipe has been doing the rounds for donkeys yonks & is a very tasty alternative at only 4pp & free on F&H! You can add a slice of nuclear processed reduced fat cheese á la Maccy D’s for an extra point on both plans. I have to admit I found the original recipe a little bland & added some dried parsley & a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce to the mince to taste. Serves 4 and it’s 1 syn if following slimming world. Here it is in all its glory:
400g lean 5% steak mince
1 onion finely chopped
1 clove garlic crushed (2 if desired)
Couple of splashes of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp dried parsley
Salt & freshly ground black pepper
1/2 iceberg lettuce roughly shredded
8 gherkins sliced
1 small red onion diced
2 tomatoes roughly chopped
For the SW Super Sauce:
3 level tbsp ligher than light mayo
5 tbsp fat free fromage frais
1 level tbsp American style mustard
2 tbsp tomato purée
2 tsp white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp onion granules
1/4 tsp sweet smoked paprika
(4 slices low fat cheese slices if desired)
Spray a large, heavy-based non-stick frying pan with Frylight and place over a high heat. Add the beef, onion and garlic and stir-fry for 6-7 minutes or until the beef is cooked through and the onions have softened. Season well.
Meanwhile, put all the SW super sauce ingredients in a bowl with 4 tablespoons of water and whisk until well combined.
Mix together the lettuce, gherkins, onions and tomatoes and divide between four wide bowls. Spoon the beef mixture on top, drizzle over the SW super sauce (add cheese if using) and serve hot enjoy!
