    About this recipe: My mother-in-law gave me this recipe. Beef steaks are marinated in red wine, garlic and spices, and pan fried twice to reduce the sauce.

    Serves: 6 

    • 175ml (6 fl oz) red wine
    • 4 tablespoons water
    • 10 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon crushed chilli flakes
    • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 6 beef fillet steaks
    • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. In a medium bowl, combine red wine, water, garlic, chillies, white pepper and salt. Add beef, and turn to coat evenly.
    2. In a large, heavy frying pan over medium heat, fry 3 steaks at a time for 2 minutes on each side. Set steaks aside, and drain cooking juices into the red wine mixture.
    3. Pour oil into frying pan, and reduce heat to medium-low. Fry steaks for a second time, 2 minutes on each side. Drain oil, and return all steaks and marinade to the pan. Allow to simmer vigorously for 2 minutes so that sauce reduces slightly.
