In this recipe, traditional Kerala cooking style meets continental cooking. I have tried to infuse some much needed flavor into this pepper beef steak without turning it into a typical Indian dish.

This dish is definitely experimental, its simple and uncomplicated preparation leaves it open to several possibilities.


  • Turmeric – 1 Pinch
  • Coriander Power – 1/4 Tea Spoon
  • Garam Masala – 1/4 Tea Spoon
  • Chopped Ginger – 1/4 Tea Spoon
  • Chopped Garlic – 1/4 Tea Spoon
  • Lemon Juice – 1 Tea Spoon
  • Pepper Powder – 1/2 Tea Spoon
  • Curd – 1/2 Tea Spoon
  • Beef Fillet – 120 Grams
  • Butter – 10-15 Grams
  • Curry Leaves – 1 Stem
  • Sliced Onion & Tomato – 1/4 Cup (optional)
  • Water – 1/2 Cup


  1. Create a nice thick marinate by mixing Turmeric, Coriander powder, Garam masala, chopped ginger and garlic, pepper powder, salt, lemon juice and curd.
  2. Apply a thick layer of the mixture on the fillet and let it rest for atleast 15 mins. You want the lemon juice and the pepper to sink into the fillet.
  3. Heat a pan on medium flame and drop some butter and see it sizzle. To bring in the Kerala flavor, add some Curry leaves . This is the highlight of the dish and it transforms a Continental Steak into something very Kerala. Add water and close it with a lid. This process softens the fillet
  4. Let the fillet now cook on low flame for about 8 to 10 mins on either side. Ensure that the lid remains closed through the cooking, this seals the moisture and keeps the fillet soft and tender
  5. When the steak is golden brown on either side, plate it. Bring in Sliced onions, Green Chillies and Tomatoes to add color to your dish.
