Chilli Beef and Spinach Stir Fry

Yes I am still here and I am trying to get back into the swing of things. Thank you all for being patient with me and my apparant lack of new recipes.

I don't have any more travel until January 2010 so I have plenty of time to get cooking and share more recipes with you.

Last night we had a quick and easy beef stirfry that I must admit to is one of my favourites. It's the one I cook when I am unsure on what I really fancy for dinner and I know that it takes a matter of minutes to get organised.

Chilli Beef and Spinach Stir Fry(recipe adapted from WW Recipe Collection Cookbook)
Serves: 4
ProPoints per serve: 7

cooking spray
1 onion, sliced
400 grams lean beef strips
1 teaspoon minced chilli
