1.Melt 60gm butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add flour and whisk to combine. Add stout, mustard and Worcestershire sauce and cook until mixture is thick (1 minute). Add cheese and fold in until melted and smooth. Season to taste and set aside covered with baking paper for 10 minutes.
2.Meanwhile, brush steaks with oil and season all over. Heat a large heavy-based ovenproof frying pan over high heat: cook steak until browned and medium-rare (4 minutes each side).
3.Preheat oven grill to high. Place steaks on a large oven tray, top with Welsh rarebit mixture and place under grill. Cook until golden and bubbling (3-4 minutes).
4.Meanwhile, cook beans in a large saucepan of salted boiling water until just tender (3 minutes). Drain. Melt remaining butter in dry pan until golden and bubbling, add beans and lemon juice and toss to combine. Serve steaks with beans, topped with hazelnuts, watercress and extra mustard.

Leftover Welsh rarebit mixture will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to two weeks. Grill spread over toast.
