Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the nuts and toss for a few secs until lightly toasted. Set aside.
  2. Season the steak strips with plenty of pepper and stir-fry over a high heat for 1-2 mins to brown. Set aside with the nuts. Tip the broccoli and celery into the pan and stir-fry for 2 mins. Pour the stock over, cover and simmer for 2 mins. Meanwhile, mix the horseradish and fromage frais together.
  3. Return the steak to the pan and toss with the veg, then sprinkle over the nuts and serve with the creamy horseradish. Great with mashed potatoes.

Very tasty, Even the kids enjoyed it. Does need more vegetables to bulk it up for a family dinner.

I love this recipe however i made quite a few tweeks, for example instead of using celery i fried mushrooms and onion then added the broccoli, a stock cube and cooked for a short time. i then added the beef for a couple of minutes. Then i added a dollop of creme fraiche. It tastes amazing!

I think it would be really helpful if the people who really didn't like a recipe said what it is they didn't like about it, if they know. It helps the rest of us to see either where they went wrong and suggest an alternative, or to see what we could do to tweak it so that we don't have the same problem.

I made the oriental version and added onion and green pepper, and then served it with noodles. Very enjoyable.

I cooked this last saturday and used creme fraiche. My friend Barry came round for an evening meal. Decided to add extra veg such as carrot and leeks plus mushrooms. Just aswell I did bcos when it came to dish up our other friend Gary turned up. There was plenty to go round. We had a fun evening. Not too keen on the nuts though.

AC - You could sub the fromage frais with creme fraiche i have done this with many recipes in the paste at a very big push some mascarpone with a little milk to loosen it up

Fromage frais is an ingredient in several recipes but I can't find it where I live. Does anyone have any suggestions for a substitute? Thanks.

This was delicious. Kept to the recipe and used hip steak from the butchers. Had it with "special" mash : sweet potato / normal spud / parsnip / grated carrot, so got all our five a day in one meal. Will def be having again - thumbs up!

Fantastic dish, great flavours and is always greeted with praise from my friends and family - wouldn't recommend changing a thing in the recipe.

If you don't skimp on the meat and you use a good sirloin or fillet steak, this is by far the best recipe I have found on this website. The mixture of the roasted cashews, broccoli & steak, with the horseradish side is fantastic. I've always made it with creamy mash as well. A proper family favourite. The picture doesn't do this meal justice.
