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.



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.
