We usually have this Syn Free Stir-fried Beef, Ginger & Spring Onions With Added Speed as part of our Chinese ‘fakeaway’. A Chinese take away has always been our weekend staple for as long as I can remember – and we thought we’d carry on this tradition only in Slimming World fashion!
There are absolutely no syns in this at all – how awesome is that?!
It really tastes ace too great with some Syn Free Singapore Noodles (left) or Syn Free “Fried” Rice (right). This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.
We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin 1 over onAmazon UK.
Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this [xxx].
If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.
Synning the sweetener
As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. Slimming World have confirmed what this change means.
Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend members count 0.5 Syn per tbsp. If using smaller amounts, like a pinch or teaspoon, there’s no need to worry about Syns at all.
The recipe for this Syn Free Stir-fried Beef, Ginger & Spring Onions With Added Speed uses 1 tablespoon of sweetener and is divided into 6 portions. That’s less than a quarter of a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
