Leftover Pepper-steak and beans

Last week I made Peppersteak pie, I made too much meat and although I made 4 pies I still had ample leftover meat. So the very next day I mixed my leftover steak with some green string beans and this was the result. Its easy to make it from scratch and relatively healthy. The meat was extremely tender even after leaving it in the fridge over-night. You can also add a side dish like mashed potatoes.


Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 500g Green string beans (frozen)
  • 5oog steak
  • 1/2 cup flour seasoned with salt & pepper ( you can add more if you have more meat)
  • olive oil for frying
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 5 mushrooms
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1x 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup Worcester sauce
  • 1-2 tablespoons cracked black pepper (to taste)
  • 1/2 cup merlot
  • salt to taste


  1. Marinade the meat in the Worcester sauce for about 30-60 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  3. In a large pan, put a generous amount of olive oil
  4. Coat the meat with the seasoned flour mixture and shake off any excess flour. Put it in the frying pan and fry until golden brown.
  5. Remove the meat from the pan and set aside. In the same pan fry the onions, garlic and mushrooms.
  6. Add the chopped tomatoes, merlot, rosemary, thyme, pepper and excess Worcester sauce.
  7. Add the meat back into the pan and simmer for 10-15 minutes. The meat should already be soft enough so no need to cook it for longer than that.
  8. Boil the beans until tender
  9. Mix everything together and serve.
