Quick and Easy Beef Style Jalfrezi

Jeff and I cooked this delicious dish at the weekend using ingredients mostly purchased at Newgate Street Co-op.
It takes about an hour to cook, with about 10 minutes actual preparation time.

This is my own recipe but feel free to copy it and try it yourself!

Quick and Easy Beef Style Jalfrezi

You will need:

1. 3 leeks:
2. 1 tablespoon frozen petit pois ;
3. 1 carrot;
4. 1 pack Grassington's Beef style Veggie "meatballs";
5. 1 jar Co-op Jalfrezi sauce;
6. 1 tablespoon vegetable oil.

* Fry the leeks and carrots in the oil in a large saucepan until they are starting to go a little crispy, then add the frozen veggie balls.
* Continue to cook on a medium heat until the balls have softened and look done, about 15 minutes should be enough.
* Then add the frozen peas and sauce and cook for the time it says on the jar... another 15 or 20 minutes. Cover the pan at this point.
* Stir occasionally to make sure the sauce does not stick, reducing heat if necessary, and adding a little water if required.
* Serve with rice or nan bread.

A little salad goes very well with this meal, we had sliced tomatoes, sliced chinese leaf, and sliced cucumber in a light french dressing.
