Anglo-Saxons call it burger, but we call steak haché! It is in fact a steak made out of mince beef.
Steak and chips for 1
100 grs of pure mince beef
1 small red onion – very finely minced
4 garlic cloves – minced
Salt & Pepper.
Half a sweet red pepper – Chopped
1 small tomato – chopped
1 tinny red chilli pepper – finely chopped
Season the mince beef with a pinch of salt and pepper, half of the chopped onion and half of the garlic. Mix well and form a nice round burger (no eggs or bread crumbs needed).
In a frying pan, heat up 1tbsp of olive oil. Place the steak in the pan and fry each side on high heat for 3 minutes.
Once the steak is cooked. Remove it from the pan, add another spoon of olive oil, then throw in, the chopped sweet red pepper, the chilli, tomato, rest of garlic and chopped onions. Add salt and pepper. Not too much salt as it might reduce the sweetness of the tomato and sweet peppers. Stir-fry the mix for 3-4 minutes and remove from heat.
You know how to cook fries right? If you are reading this, you know how you like your potato fries.
My steak was served with a mix of French fries and potato wedges…AND MAYONAISE.
You may have noticed by now, I love Mayonnaise and Garlic!!! What do you want? I am French. Deal with it.
The little stir-fry will bring all the moisture needed in this dish. I recommend that you make your own steak haché as you will know exactly with is in it. Mince steak doesn’t need bread crumbs and eggs. It just need handling carefully.
See you next week!
