This is an easy but very delicious dish. Another of our dinnertime favourites. It is worth going to bit extra for really good quality steak. I use the round New York Steaks

Serves: 4 

  • olive oil
  • 2 x 400g cans butter beans
  • 1 garlic clove, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
  • 1 red onion cut into thin wedges
  • 250g punnet of cherry tomatoes (I usually use about one and a half punnets)
  • half teaspoon of chicken stock powder (or about 30mls of chicken stock)
  • 4 x 180g New York Cut Steaks or sirloin steaks (however, I buy 2 largish round ones and have those with all the butter beans for just me and my husband)
  • balsalmic vinegar to serve and sprinkle with fresh oregano (or coriander if you don't have oregano

Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Extra time:10min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

  1. Preheat Oven to 200 degrees C.
  2. In a small baking dish put rinsed butter beans, tomatoes (cut some in half, leave others whole), garlic, chilli flakes and onion.
  3. Drizzle with some olive oil, chicken stock and put a small amount (about 30ml) of water in and mix around. Cover with foil loosely.
  4. Bake for 25minutes, remove foil and bake for another 5 or 10min until onion is tender and tomatoes are soft.
  5. When the beans are nearly done, heat a chargrill and spray with some olive oil. Cook steaks for 3-4 min each side for medium. Rest for 5 minutes covered in foil.
  6. Slice each steak into thin-ish strips and put on top of the beans & tomatoes on each plate. If your steak is too rare I usually just throw it back in the pan for 1 minute to sear it.
  7. Top with the oregano and a splash of balsamic.

Great recipe, wonderful flavours which complemented the quality of the New York steaks. One tweak, I halved the amount of beans and added diced potato instead. My family loved it. - 19 Jul 2009


It was all good-a great mix of meat and vegetables.. i just cooked the steaks in the frypan (heavy bottomed, cast iron) and they were fine. Served with mashed potatoes...I feel a new favourite coming on. - 15 Mar 2009
