In honour of Ian 'Beefy' Botham being on the show, resident chef James Tanner rustled up his beef fajita dish, made with Asian flavours for Lorraine on ITV, 22nd July.
Asian beef fajitas
125ml dark soy sauce
75ml mirin (sweet Japanese rice wine)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp grated ginger
Large pinch dried chilli flakes
50g brown sugar
Zest and juice of 1 lime
2 sirloin steaks
1 tbsp oIl, for frying
For the mango salsa:
2 mangoes, peeled and cut into small cubes
1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp fish sauce
½ red onion, finely diced
2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
4 soft tortilla wraps
Large handful fresh bean sprouts
2 spring onions, sliced on a diagonal
½ cucumber, sliced into long strips
Few coriander leaves
For the steaks: Mix the soy sauce, mirin, garlic, ginger, chilli, brown sugar, and lime juice in a bowl
Place the steaks in a shallow dish. Pour over the marinade to coat. Leave to marinate in the fridge for a minimum of an hour, or overnight.
Heat a little oil in a frying pan until hot. Cook the steaks depending on thickness for 3 minutes per side for rare, 4 minutes per side for medium rare, and 5 minutes per side for well done. Two minutes before the end of cooking, stir in the remaining marinade and reduce by up to a third until caramelised.
Remove the steak and reduced marinade, keep warm and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Slice diagonally.
For the mango salsa: In a bowl, gently mix the mango, chilli, lime juice, fish sauce, onion, and coriander together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Warm the tortillas according to pack instructions. Divide the steak and juices among the tortillas.
Top with mango salsa, bean sprouts, spring onions, cucumber, and a few fresh coriander leaves. Roll and serve.
