  1. Parboil the potatoes in lightly salted water for 5-6 minutes, or until partially cooked. Drain well.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the red pepper salsa. Heat 1/2 tbsp oil in a frying pan and gently fry the pepper and garlic for 3-4 minutes, or until the pepper is soft. Transfer to a small bowl and mix in the tomato puree, vinegar, 1/4 tsp dried mixed herbs and 1/2 tbsp oil. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  3. Add 1/2 tbsp oil to the frying pan and fry the onion for 3-4 minutes, or until soft. Add the steak strips, mustard and Worcestershire sauce and fry for a further 3-4 minutes, or until cooked to your liking. Add half the cheese, mix well and season with salt and pepper.
  4. While the steak is cooking, heat 1 tbsp oil in a separate frying pan and add the cooked potato and 1/4 tsp mixed herbs. Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until brown and crisp. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Spread the bread roll the remaining margarine/butter. Spoon the steak mix onto one half of the roll, sprinkle with the remaining cheese and top with the red pepper salsa. Place the other half of the roll on top and serve on a plate with the crispy home fries.
