I'll post pictures later, but here's the recipe:

2 lb's freshly minced (ground for my US buddies) prime rump steak.
1/2 lb mixed oyster and shitake mushrooms, chopped.
1 large onion finely chopped.
1 sweet pointed pepper, cut into strips
4 cups passatta
3/4 cup tamarind sauce
Monterey Jack cheese
Mature cheddar cheese
Mashed potato
Chilli powder
White Pepper

Firstly, I warmed up about three tablespoons of oil in a large wok, and stirred in the onion and mushrooms. I added salt, white pepper, and chilli powder to the meat, and mixed it well. Once the onions had softened and the mushrooms were heated, I added the meat. Stir fried the lot of it until the mixture was cooked through. Then I added the passatta (Italian tomato sauce, basically), the herbs, and the tamarind, and stirred everything together, allowing some of the liquid from the sauce to boil off. Tasted for spice levels, and added a little extra... Because I like it hot! I took about a quarter cup of diced Monterey Jack, and mixed it in until it was melted through, then took the wok off the heat, and added the peppers.

I laid the mix out into a couple of large casserole dishes, topped them with mashed potato and grated cheddar and Monterey Jack.

Baked in a 220C (425F) oven for about 10 minutes, until the cheese was golden.

The end result was so moreish... three of us finished the lot off in 2 meals! If there was some left, I'd be eating it now! Adding the peppers last adds a crunch to the dish that really works :D

Okay, this was a bit of an experiment for me. Usually I have a big enough piece of beef to wrap around the filling and tie off...

I rubbed some Crisco onto the inside of a meatloaf pan, lined it with strips of rump, then powdered the inside of the strips and the joins with a mixture of flour, salt, pepper, paprika, oregano, and basil.
The filling is diced potatoes, carrots, onions and some cheese. All I had was Double Gloucester, and it didn't melt as I wanted it to.
I placed a final piece of beef on the top, and seasoned with basil, oregano, salt, pepper, and paprika, and sprayed with olive oil.
Baked it on a high heat for about twenty-five minutes.

And here it is )
