Two Chubby Cubs are masters at devising quick recipes that are surprisingly yummy despite their simplicity. Cheesy Meaty Parcels is the Cubs’ take on steak fajitas with a smear of refried beans over your wrap, which might not look overly appetising, but the flavour is cracking so don’t miss them off!
You don’t need to buy expensive steak for this – thin cut, flank or frying steaks are perfect as you want them to cook quickly when you pan-fry them on a high heat. If you love this, have a go at smoky steak fajitas, fast chicken fajitas and philly cheesesteak.

Prep time: Approx 15 mins

- 1 green and 1 red pepper (sliced)
- 2 onions (finely sliced)
- 2 small steaks (about 140g each)
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 x 435g tin of refried beans

Cost per portion: Approx £1.80
Heat a frying pan over a medium-high heat and spray it with oil. Add the peppers and the onions and cook until softened.
Clear a space in the middle of the pan and chuck the steaks in, Depending on the thickness of your steaks, you want to cook them for about 3 minutes on each side – don’t be moving them around, let them sear and char a little.
Place the steaks on a plate and add the Worcestershire sauce to the pan of onions and peppers. Cook them for a few minutes longer, and meanwhile slice your steaks – you don’t need to do anything fancy here, just cut them however you want.
Assemble your wrap – add a good smear of refried beans, then the lettuce, then the steak, then the onions and peppers, followed by the cheese. Wrap, eat and enjoy.
