Steak in Blackbean Sauce - Recipe

Needing some inspiration for family meals, I was chatting to my Mum and discussing the different dinners she would make for my sister and I. One of my favourites was a dish she used to make with steak in a cream sauce. It was delicious and as Husband, Z and Miss C all love steak, I decided I'd test it on them.

The dish is steak in blackbean sauce with some single cream added to thicken it up; it's almost like a stroganoff in a way but without the mushrooms and other stuff that goes in a stroganoff.


Quick frying steak - how much you want to use is up to you
A bunch of spring onions
A pepper - you can add more in if you like
A jar of blackbean sauce
150ml Single cream
Long grain rice

Let's Cook It

Start with the rice as the steak takes less time to cook. I used 2 and a half small cups of long grain rice and added 5 small cups of water to the pan with it. Bring the rice to the boil, add in a bit of salt, stir and then turn the heat down. Put a lid on the pot and leave the rice to simmer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn the heat off and leave the steam inside the pot to finish cooking the rice.

Slice the spring onions, pepper and steak. Heat a little olive oil in a pan and gently fry the spring onion and pepper. Add in the steak and fry until it starts to go brown. Stir in the blackbean sauce and then add in the cream. I found it needed a little bit of salt which I added to taste.

Fluff up the rice using a fork and then serve.

Miss C and I filmed the recipe so here is the video if you'd like to watch how we made this really easy and yummy dish.
