  • Preparation time180 min
  • Cooking time30 min


  • 1 kg of beef fillet steak, cut into 4 thick slices
  • 5 Tbsp. (75 ml) of cooking oil
  • 2 Royco beef cubes
  • 2 tsp. (10 ml) of garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. (5 ml) of ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp. (10 ml) of fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 medium onions, sliced round
  • 1 red capsicum, sliced round
  • 1 green capsicum, sliced round
  • For the sauce:
  • 1 Tbsp. (15 ml) of Royco Mchuzi Mix
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 ml) of water
  • 1 cup (250 ml) of whole cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • To serve:
  • 3 bunches of spinach, shredded and steamed
  • Potato wedges (skin on)


  • Place the steaks inside a heavy polythene bag and beat with a mallet or rolling pin. Place the oil, Royco beef cubes, garlic powder, black pepper, rosemary and salt to taste in a bowl. Mix well.
  • Remove the steaks from the bag and soak them well in the marinade. Set aside, covered, for at least 2 hours or preferably overnight in the fridge.
  • Place the steaks, (cook a few at a time), into a pan or a grill and cook on a high heat, turning occasionally until browned and cooked to your liking.
  • Add the capsicum and onions to the meat. Cook for two minutes, turning occasionally until the vegetables wilt. Serve on a platter.
  • To make a sauce, mix the Royco Mchuzi Mix with the water. Pour the mixture into the same pan that fried the meat. Scrape off any bits that have stuck to the pan as you stir. Simmer until reduced and add whole cream. Stir and season with salt and pepper.
  • To serve, place a small heap of steamed spinach onto a heated plate. Top it with a piece of steak and drizzle the sauce on top. Finish with a few potato wedges on the side.
