Our black bean beef recipe has a balanced combination of nutrients. The wild rice element of the dish is high in protein and provides B vitamins and minerals, iron and potassium. This dish creates an enjoyable authentic flavour to the tender meat due to the slow cook method. Tossed to finish with a tasty black bean sauce - what a treat!


500g beef short rib or brisket
200g wild rice, washed with cold water
200g broccoli, cut into large florets
4 carrots, cut into large chunks cut on the diagonal

Remove ribs and cool for 5-10 minutes. Once cooled gently rub cornflour around the meat.
2 Just 5 minutes before serving, steam broccoli and chunks of carrot for 3-4 minutes and place around the edge of your serving plate.
