Recipe by bluemoon downunder

From 'recipes for a yummy tummy: lick your lips, help your hips' which came with this month's issue of the 'australian good taste' magazine. I haven't made this and if I were to do so, to meet my taste preferences, I'd omit the red chili and use regular not light cheese. If you decide to make this, do feel free to increase the heat if you want to!

  3. Combine the polenta with boiling water in a large bowl; add the remaining ingredients, beat to combine and allow to stand for 10 minutes; spoon the mixture evenly over the beef; bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and set.
