Black-Pepper Beef Tenderloin Dices with Apple
Accredited Practising Dietitian (DAA) and Accredited Dietitian (HKDA), Danica YAU said, "A dish prepared with vegetables of different colours can offer greater variety of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre. Dietary fibre can lower cholesterol, prevent constipation and increase satiety, hence preventing excessive food intake. Using apple as dish ingredient allows natural flavour to shine through so the use of condiments can be reduced."
