Stuffed Steak and Cauliflower Cheese Recipes
In this article, I'll show you how to make a stuffed sirloin steak for a delicious meal. I've also included recipes for tasty cauliflower cheese with mashed potatoes and vegetables. You'll find step-by-step instructions as well as videos and photos to help guide you through the process.
- 3 large pieces round, striploin or sirloin steak
- 2 large onions
- 2 medium tomatoes
- 1 loaf white bread
- Parsley and mixed herbs
- 6 large potatoes
- Carrots, sprouts and cauliflower
- Small portion of cheese and milk
Step 1: Make the Stuffing
- Break up the bread in to small pieces. I used a small blender which is perfect for making breadcrumbs. Add the pieces of bread to the blender and turn into breadcrumbs.
- Add the parsley. Fresh is best for taste but if you are unable to buy this then use the dried parsley. I would use a full jar for a loaf of bread, It is all down to your preferred taste though. You can add a little more or less.
- Add the mixed herbs. I only add a tablespoon of these. But my sister adds the full jar. So it is up to you but if you are making stuffing for the first time I would be cautious and add less .
- Peal and cut up the onions into very small pieces.
- Add a little oil to a pot and add the onions. If the pot is small you can do this in two stages.
- Stir until the onions are moist and a little brown.
- Make a hole in the middle of the breadcrumbs and throw the onions into the dish.
- Cut up and slice the tomatoes into small pieces and add to the pot to heat. These only need about half a minute because you do not want them to go into mush. Add the tomatoes to the breadcrumbs and onions.
- Stir the ingredients together with a spoon. Mix in well making sure you have got to the breadcrumbs at the end of the bowl.
Step 2: Prepare the Roasting Dish
- Add a large piece of tin foil to the baking dish.
- Make sure you leave enough on either side so that you can fold it over the dish and seal.
- It is best to have a dish that is big enough so you can put the steak pieces flat on top of the stuffing.
Step 3: Prepare the Steak
Run the steak under the tap water and dry with a paper towel. Add a teaspoon of oil to a pan and seal the meat. Cook on both sides until the steak is sealed and brown. This only takes about twenty seconds on both sides. The reason this is done is to keep most of the meat juices from escaping into the stuffing. You do not want dry and tough steak.
Remove the Fat
I do not like eating the fat that is on the steak. But at this stage I leave it on the meat. There are two reasons for this. The juices and flavour from the fat can mix with the stuffing and it is so much easier to remove the fat once it is cooked. If you have someone who likes eating this part of the steak then all the better.
Step 4: Cook the Steak With the Stuffing
- Add a layer of stuffing to the bottom of the roasting dish, approximately one inch. Some of the meat juices will collect here and you can later mix this part of the stuffing with the rest.
- Add the steak on top of the small amount of stuffing.
- Then add the remainder of the stuffing on top of the meat. This will cover the whole dish.
- Wrap over the tin foil and seal.
- Put the stuffed steak dish into a preheated oven.
- After ten minutes turn the oven temperature to 180 degrees centigrade or equivalent settings.
- Cook for one and half hours.
- Remove the dish and take out the steak and put on a plate. This is the time to remove any fat you do not want. It will fall off the meat. I let this go cold and then cut it up into tiny pieces. The birds love it!
- Using a large spoon mix in the stuffing by taking the bottom part which is moist and adding the higher drier part.
- Put the steak back into the dish. Cover the meat with the stuffing.
- Leave the tin foil off the stuffing this time and put back in the oven for a further half hour. Note: The cooking time depends on the amount of steak and the cooker you use. The times above are approximate.
- Take the dish out and test the steak, if the knife slides through it immediately then the stuffed steak is ready. If the meat feels hard then cook for another ten minutes.
Step 5: Roast the Potatoes
- Peal and wash the potatoes.
- Cut into reasonable sizes for your roast potatoes. I usually do four potato pieces for each person.
- Put into a pot and boil for 15 minutes.
- Drain out the water.
- Add a small amount of cooking oil to a dish and add the potatoes.
- They take about one hour to cook depending on how well done you like them. As you can see from the photos I like my roast potatoes very well done, brown and crispy.
- Put the dish containing the potatoes on the highest shelf in the oven. Your stuffed steak would be nearly cooked so this can be placed in the lowest shelf.

Step 6: Make the Cauliflower Cheese
- Remove the leaves from the cauliflower.
- Cut it in half as this makes it easier to cut into small pieces.
- Place the florets of cauliflower on to the surface of a small oven dish.
- Grate some cheese over the top.
- It should be covered completely and then it depends how much cheese you prefer. I like to add quite a bit for the extra taste.
- Add some milk around the edges; do not let the milk hit the cheese. It should go up to three-quarters of the cauliflower.
- Cauliflower cheese takes 40 minutes in the oven to cook.
- Make sure you time it to coincide with the cooking time of the rest of your dinner.
The portions I have cooked here in this photo is for two people because one of the dinner party does not like cauliflower.
When it is cooked you will have a tasty vegetable enhanced with melted cheese.

Stuffed Steak Dinner Recipe
The name of the recipe is stuffed steak but the beauty of this dish is you can make it with cheaper cuts of beef too. This is actually a recipe that my mother made for us years ago as one of our Sunday dinners. When I was younger most families could only afford a roast or main meat dish one day a week.
We would have roast and mashed potatoes and three vegetables with the stuffed steak. Mum could only afford round steak most of the time but occasionally she made it with strip loin or sirloin. The better the meat the better the taste, but it is still really delicious when it is made with round steak.
This is because the meat is cooked slowly and surrounded with stuffing. It cooks with the juices mixed in with the onions and herbs. The meat falls apart on the fork and has a distinctive taste.I learnt a lot from my mother when I was younger and now I enjoy some really great homemade cooked dinners because of all her wonderful inventive recipes.

Brett thanks for reading and sharing. I would be lost without my home cooked roast dinners! We are having roast lamb and mint sauce, roast potatoes and mash with three veg for our Easter Sunday dinner tommorow.
Hello Polly. Frying the meat before hand seals in the juices and flavour so yes I agree always the best way to cook it.
thruthfornow if you get a chance I would recommend you cook your steak like this. It is really a very unique and lovely taste.
