RECIPE : Beef Steak Haché with Butternut Squash Chips


Beef steak haché is really a posh name for a flat burger! It's seasoned minced beef which is pressed together to form a steak shape, which you then chargrill or fry in a pan. It's delicious served with chips and a salad-no need for a bun!

***

My recipe works out to 5pp/approx.300kcal for this whole meal which includes 1 teaspoon of oil for the butternut squash chips.

It's also Filling & Healthy or Simple Start friendly. If you are following either of these options, you could serve this with potato chips instead.
The oil is from your daily allowance.

***

YOU WILL NEED : (Per portion)

125g Extra lean minced beef
1 clove garlic, chopped
Mixed dried Italian herbs
Zest of 1/2 a lemon
Black pepper
1 teaspoon low salt soy sauce

*

1/2 a medium butternut squash
1 teaspoon olive oil
Mixed dried Italian herbs

***


Start by cutting the butternut squash into chips. Mix with the oil and seasoning.
Spread in a flat layer on a baking tray.
Bake for 40-50 minutes at 200C/400F/Gas6 until golden brown on the outside.


10-15 minutes before the chips are ready, mix all the seasoning ingredients into the beef mince. Mix well with a fork.


Compress the beef with a fork. Form into a flat steak shape. Cook on a medium-high heat in a griddle or frying pan for 5 minutes each side until lovely and brown.


Serve with a simple green salad. Dress lightly with some lemon juice or balsamic vinegar.

TIPS

You could serve with 1 tablespoon light mayo for an extra 1pp/25kcal or take from your daily Extra Treats on Simple Start.
*
Traditionally, the French serve steak haché with a fried egg on top-great for protein and makes it even more filling!
This is 2pp/63kcal or allowed as an unlimited food on Filling & Healthy or Simple Start.
