Makes: 12

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes



  • 2 lean thin cut or minute steaks
  • 4 sheets filo pastry
  • 25g/1oz butter, melted
  • 150ml/¼pint sour cream
  • 30ml/2tbsp reduced calorie mayonnaise
  • 15ml/1tbsp mango chutney or redcurrant jelly
  • Grated rind and juice of ½ lemon
  • 2.5ml/½tsp garlic salt
  • 10ml/2tsp coriander seeds or schezuan peppercorns, finely crushed
  • 2tsp/10ml olive oil
  • Small bunch flat-leaf parsley leaves


  • Preheat the oven to Gas mark 5, 190°C, 375°F.
  • Cover the filo with a damp tea towel. Place a sheet of filo on to a floured surface. Cut into twelve 6-7cm/2½-2¾inch squares. Line each non-stick mini muffin hole with 3 buttered filo squares, placing each one at a slightly different angle, then gently press down to make a tartlet shell.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Set aside to cool.
  • In a small bowl mix together the soured cream, mayonnaise and mango chutney or redcurrant jelly and the lemon juice and rind. Spoon a little of the mixture into the base of each filo shell and place on a serving platter.
  • Coat the steaks on both sides in the garlic salt, coriander seeds or schezuan spices. Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan and sear the beef for 1-2 minutes on each side. Set aside to rest for 1-2 minutes then slice.
  • Arrange the beef slices over the flavoured cream and garnish with a parsley leaf. Serve immediately.
