In a skillet, cook onion in the butter over moderate heat until golden. Add the steak, tomatoes, and bell pepper. Cook, stirring, over medium-high heat, until vegetables are softened. Add the egg, raisins, olives, gherkins, and mushrooms and cook the mixture, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the brandy, heated, and ignite. Shake skillet gently until flame go out.

Put the casserole in a larger pan, add enough water to reach 1 inch up the sides of the casserole, and cover the pan with foil. Bake in the middle of a preheated 325℉ (160℃) oven for 15 minutes. Serve with sautéed bananas.
