Hong Kong Style Steak with Tomato Sauce

Before I had posted one of the popular office lunch box meals in Hong Kong called Hong Kong Style Fish Fillets in Corn Sauce,  I nearly ordered that everyday when I worked there but if that not my choice this was my other option the beef steak in tomato sauce.  Basically this dish is just a simple pan seared beef steak served with a chunky sweet and tangy tomato sauce, it’s so easy to make but definitely a big jump in terms of flavour compared to the normal steak served with gravy.

  2. I love this – reminds me of veal scallopine parmigana but without the heaviness of the cheese, etc. And it seems to have just the right combination of sauces there to spice things up,
