There is no comfort food like light, smooth a delicious mashed potatoes! Throw steak and a good gravy in the mix and you've got me, any time of day or night!!!
Salt and pepper
Defrost and pat dry your steak. Rub it through with a spice mix of black pepper, salt, garlic powder and steak seasoning and set aside.
Wash and chop celery, onions and carrots roughly and set aside.
Wash and peel potatoes and boil with a little salt.
While the potatoes cook, coat the steak in flour and dust off any excess. Pour about 4 tablespoons of olive oil into a pan and when its hot, add steak. Allow it to cook on each side for 5 minutes on each side for a nice, tender medium rare meat with a nice crust.
Take the steak out and add chopped vegetables and mushrooms to the remaining oil in the pan and allow cook for about 5 minutes.
Pour in about a cup of wine and about a tablespoon of flour and turn the heat down. Taste for seasoning and add more as required. Let it cook for another 2 minutes till it thickens to the gravy consistency of your liking and take off heat.
When the potatoes are soft, add a little garlic powder, a knob of butter and half a cup of milk and mash with a potato masher in the pot over low heat till its all smooth.
Serve up with a sprinkling of chopped parsley.
Enjoy, just like my dinner guest did...
Cheers and bon apetit!
