An easy to make, all in one Dish, this easy to make, Sweet Chilli and Mayonnaise Steak Casserole, is a definite keeper. You can look forward to Moist, Succulent Steak pieces, topped with Onion/Capsicums and Fried Potato Chips, lightly baked to warm before serving.
And.. Just like that another little getaway comes to an End…whew where does time fly too. Oh what a Beautiful part of the World Italy is?. I will be sharing some of my travel pics in future posts, but for now you could have a peak into my INSTAGRAM gallery for the few that I had posted there;-)
Back Home in Bahrain, and I am left recuperating, a couple days after my travels, from jet-lag…It isn’t the difficulty of adjusting from different time zones that get to me, it’s just an awful feeling of tiredness, Well I for one, listen when my body is protesting against me, and make do with catching a few power naps in between??… How Do You cope with Jet-lag?? < do Let me know>.
So it’s back to a bit of Normality on the kitchen front as well, and with having to make do with vegetarian meals and/Or Seafood while travelling, I needed some good old Steak. This recipe I share today is a favourite with My Habibi and I, and I have made this dish for family and friends, with great success each time.
I do Hope you give this dish a try, and I look forward to all your feedback

1 Kg Steak ( any cuts may be used)
1 Teaspoon Garlic Paste
1/4 Teaspoon Turmeric Powder
3/4 Teaspoon Cumin Powder
1 Teaspoon Chilli Powder
1 Teaspoon Lemon Pepper seasoning
1 Teaspoon Salt (or to taste)
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
3 Tablespoon Sweet Chilli Sauce (any brand/variety)
1 Tablespoon Tomato Sauce
2 Tablespoon Mayonnaise
Instructions (Step 1)
✔️ Cut the Steaks into large Strips or Cubes
✔️ Marinate with all the above Ingredients.
✔️ In a Pot/Pan, melt 1 tablespoon Butter and 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil, and add the marinated steaks, cook on medium to low heat, until the steaks are cooked through and tender
*NOTES BY FOODEVA MARSAY *
~ ENSURE THAT STEAK REMAINS SAUCY, IF NEED BE ADD A BIT OF WATER DURING COOKING PROCESS. DO NOT DRY OUT THE STEAK.
Ingredients (Step 2)
1 Large Red Onion sliced into rounds
1-2 Capsicums Sliced into strips
1 Tablespoon Butter
Instructions (Step 2)
✔️ Melt the Butter and Add in the Sliced Onions, sauté until transparent
✔️ Now add in the Capsicums, and sauté for a few minutes, *DO NOT OVER FRY THESE, KEEP A BIT OF CRUNCH*, season lightly with salt and pepper.
✔️ Remove with a slotted spoon and drain onto Kitchen paper towel on a plate.
Ingredients (Step 3)
1-2 Large Potatoes, Sliced into Strips of Chips
(I use Ready Cut Fries, As little or more as you prefer)
Instructions (Step 3)
✔️ Fry the chips in vegetable Oil, as you would for regular fries. Remove when crispy, using a slotted spoon and drain off well.
Ingredients (Step 4)
The Sauce For Topping; Whisk together the following :
3 Tablespoon Mayonnaise
2 Tablespoon Sweet Chilli Sauce
1 Teaspoon Tomato Paste
1 Tablespoon Fresh Cream
*NOTES BY FOODEVA MARSAY*
~ All these steps, from 2-4, can be done whilst the steak is cooking, it is more about having all these ready before the final layering into a casserole.
Casserole Layering Instructions
✔️ Grease a medium sized Rectangular Glass Casserole
✔️ Add in the prepared Steak (from Step 1)
✔️ Drizzle over the Steak, a little of the Sauce prepared in Step 4.
✔️ Sprinkle over the surface some of the Onion/Capsicum (from Step 2)
✔️ Layer on the Potato Chips/Fries
✔️ Generously drizzle the remainder of the prepared Sauce (from step 4) and any left over Onion/Capsicum (from step 2)
✔️ Heat the Oven to 180 degrees Celsius, and warm casserole through for 10 minutes, remove and sprinkle on top some shredded Gouda/Cheddar and a sprinkle of Dried origanum, return to oven for a few minutes until cheese melts.
✔️ Best Enjoyed Served with a Side of Green Salad, I also served with a Garlic Naan, to mop up some of the sauce?
*ENDING NOTES BY FOODEVA MARSAY*
☆ Do Not be Afraid to make this dish, I have filed it under Moderate Difficulty, only because of the various steps involved. The steps are carried out whilst you have the Steak cooking, which makes it a lot easier when we need all the steps ingredients to layer the casserole. <Multi-Tasking;-) >
☆ Another Variation to this very recipe is that I Make a Chicken version, you can make this with chicken fillets with the exact same sauces, or like I do to change the overall taste, is make it a “Portuguese” flavoured Chicken casserole, follow the exact same process Except for the sauce Use Peri Peri Sauces or a Good Portuguese Cook-in Sauce/Marinade.
☆ Use any brands/variety of sauces available in your area, I have made this both in South Africa and Bahrain with different Brand of Sauces and it works perfectly each time.
