    Horseradish root is larger than an ordinary radish, and has a hot, peppery flavour.


  • 2 tbsp low-fat fromage frais


  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the nuts and toss for a few secs until lightly toasted. Set aside.

  2. Season the steak strips with plenty of pepper and stir-fry over a high heat for 1-2 mins to brown. Set aside with the nuts. Tip the broccoli and celery into the pan and stir-fry for 2 mins. Pour the stock over, cover and simmer for 2 mins. Meanwhile, mix the horseradish and fromage frais together.

  3. Return the steak to the pan and toss with the veg, then sprinkle over the nuts and serve with the creamy horseradish. Great with mashed potatoes.

I didn't think this was so great. There was a lot of liquid left after cooking the broccoli and celery, and it didn't reduce down very easily. I thought the cashews were a bit out of place as well (and I love them in Chinese cooking, so it's not that I don't like them in general) and the creamy horseradish/fromage frais sauce kind of melted into the liquid from cooking. All in all, okay, but not really worth making again for me.

Very tasty, Even the kids enjoyed it. Does need more vegetables to bulk it up for a family dinner.

I love this recipe however i made quite a few tweeks, for example instead of using celery i fried mushrooms and onion then added the broccoli, a stock cube and cooked for a short time. i then added the beef for a couple of minutes. Then i added a dollop of creme fraiche. It tastes amazing!

I think it would be really helpful if the people who really didn't like a recipe said what it is they didn't like about it, if they know. It helps the rest of us to see either where they went wrong and suggest an alternative, or to see what we could do to tweak it so that we don't have the same problem.

I made the oriental version and added onion and green pepper, and then served it with noodles. Very enjoyable.
