I came across this one on I altered a few of the spice ingredients but it’s pretty much the same as the original. It’s dead easy and the steak is nice alternative to mince meat. This is quite a mild version, so bump up the spices if you fancy it hot.

Serves 2-3


2 tbs vegetable oil

1/2 tsp hot paprika

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp chilli powder

1 tsp cayenne pepper

2 (about 180g each) trimmed beed rump or scotch fillet steaks, thinly sliced.

2x 125g cans red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

2 vine-ripened tomatoes, roughly chopped (I used 1/2 can tomatoes, as I think it gives a better flavour)

2 tbs finely chopped coriander leaves, plus extra sprigs to servwe

Boiled basmati rice and guacamole, to serve


1. Place the vegetable oil, paprika, chilli, cayenne, cumin and beef in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine. Set aside for 10 minutes to marinate.

2. Heat the wok or large frying pan over medium heat. When hot, add the beef mixture and stir fry for 1-2 minutes until the beef is browned. Add the kidney beans, tomato and 1 tablespoon water, then simmer over the medium heat for about 5 minutes or until the tomatoes have softened. Stir in the chopped coriander, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

3. Divide the mixture among plates and top with coriander sprigs. Serve with boiled basmati rice and guacamole.

This is weight watchers recipe. I loved the chips; I will definitely do these again. I’m not a big fan of oven chips, in fairness you can’t beat chipper chips but these are a great healthy substitute.

Serves 4

11 Pro-points value


  750 g Potatoes, Old, Raw   
  25 g Polenta, Raw, instant or semolina   
  1 teaspoons (level) Paprika   
  1/8 teaspoons (level) Chilli Powder, or to taste   
  5 spray(s) Cooking Spray, Calorie Controlled   
  560 g Beef, Fillet Steak, Lean, Raw, 4 x 140g steaks   
  4 tablespoons Yogurt, Greek, 0% Fat   
  1 tablespoons Mayonnaise, Low Fat   
  2 teaspoons (level) Mustard, Wholegrain   
  1 pinch Salt   
  1/8 teaspoons (ground) Pepper, Black (Whole, Cracked or Ground), freshly ground   
  4 medium Tomato, to garnish   
  4 sprig(s) (fresh) Parsley, fresh, to garnish   


  • Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6/200°C/fan oven 180°C. Spray a non-stick baking sheet with low fat cooking spray.
  • Cut the potatoes into thin chips. Mix together the polenta or semolina, paprika and chilli powder. Toss the chips in this mixture and spread them out on the baking sheet. Spray with low fat cooking spray and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes, turning once after 20 minutes.
  • Ten minutes before the chips are cooked, preheat a char grill pan or non-stick frying pan. Spray the steaks with low fat cooking spray. Char grill or dry fry them, turning once, for 6-8 minutes, or until cooked to your liking. Allow to rest for 2 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, mix together the yogurt, mayonnaise and mustard.
  • Serve the steak and chips with the mustard mayo, garnished with tomatoes and parsley.


  • These oven-baked chips are quite fragile, so turn them over carefully with a fish slice.
