Tamarind Jerk Beef Strips

This is a really quick and tasty recipe for beef. It can be eaten in a wrap or with rice. It combines the flavors of Jerk and Tamarind, both Caribbean favorites. It is not particularly spicy but very tasty. Any brand of dried jerk seasoning may be used but for the Tamarind flavor, I like to use a Tangy Tamarind Chutney made by a company called National.

7 oz New York Strip Steak, cut in strips
½ tbsp dried jerk seasoning
½ tsp salt
½ tsp brown sugar
½ tsp thyme
1 shallot
1 small jalapeno pepper
3 cloves garlic
3-4 cherry tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1-2 tsp Worcester sauce
1 tbsp Tangy Tamarind chutney
2 tbsp cooking oil

  1. Cut the steak into small strips. Season with jerk seasoning, salt, Worcester sauce, brown sugar and thyme
  2. Place shallot, garlic cloves and jalapeno pepper slices in a small chopper, and pulse to coarsely chop.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and sauté chopped shallot, garlic and jalapeno pepper. Cook until the chopped shallot becomes transparent
  4. Add steak strips with seasoning and sauté until lightly brown. Add chopped cherry tomatoes, and tamarind chutney. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Eat with rice or in a wrap.
