Chilli Chocolate Fillet Steak

Malted Chilli Chocolate Fillet Steak


Ok now folks! Don’t knock this until you try it. Seriously this is one of my very favourite sauces for steak. It’s the type of sauce you want to lick off the pattern of the plate for, if I had patterned plates! It is supremely delicious even if I say so myself! I know, I have a bit of a thing for creating sweet and hot dishes!

I created this one  by the seat of my pants for a friend. You see before the advent of tiny feet, M and I would take turns cooking and M is an amazing chef, she is a purist, so lovingly takes the time to make everything from scratch and I am always in awe of her food so you can imagine it makes you up your game! So I said I’d come up with something she wouldn’t expect, but the evening she was coming around I completely forgot she was coming!

So you can imagine when I realised I ran like a woman possessed and hared it down to the supermarket, grabbed steaks and fresh veg and legged it back up the hill home. But of course I then realised I still didn’t know what I was going to create, until I looked in the cupboard and there sat an unloved jar of chocolate spread and I thought what the heck?!

Turned out to be a serious hit! And another time after I made chocolate fettucini! But I’ll save that for another time 🙂

This is a super cheats way of doing it – if you are a purist you can use fresh chillies and superior dark chocolate, but I have to say – not a fan of dark chocolate, just a bit  bitter for my taste. But with this recipe you can substitute chocolate spread, as long as it’s a simple one. Now I haven’t tried this with one of the nuttier chocolate spreads it might actually be nice, but I used own brand chocolate spread, and it was mmmmmm 😀


2 fillet steaks

1 garlic clove chopped finely

1/4 tsp. dried red chillies

1 tsp. Dufrais Red Wine Vinegar

200ml single cream

2 large tsp. chocolate spread

1 tsp. Olive Oil

1 tsp. butter

twist of coarse ground mix pepper, or black.


In a pan on a medium heat add the butter and olive oil, when melted add garlic, chilli and cook for 1 minute. Place your steaks in the pan and cook for 1-2ms both sides to seal then remove from pan and place on plate.

Back to the pan, add the vinegar then slowly mix in the cream (it may look a little strange but just keep mixing).

Then add the chocolate spread and mix together until you have a lovely chocolatey sauce, add ground pepper to taste, I personally love the mixed pepper corns you get that add a hint of pimento.

Then serve with whatever you like, for me I had asparagus and it lovvvvvvved the chocolate sauce. Try it, I dare you! 😀

    This sounds insanely delicious; kind of like chicken mole! And you made chocolate fettuccine?! When are you publishing a cookbook?? Haha

      T’is!!! already working on the book! The recipes are the easy bit, writing the foreward and trying to find an angle/hook for a non-celebrity – not so easy!! 🙂



      • walkingonadream89 Says:

        It seems like you use ingredients in unexpected ways that still sound delicious, so that could be your angle! Just throwing an idea out there haha. I would buy it famous chef or not
