Beefsteak Begonia is just a common name for Begonia erythrophylla, the one pictured above is entirely different, with blackish leaves.
Unfortunately, we don't have any begonia experts on here. I have similar one with the green centers on black leaves I have yet to ID.

Possibly some form of B. ricinifolia:
Begonia (Begonia x ricinifolia)

There are others, but most have yet to be pictured here:
