Steak with Horseradish Mashed Potatoes

Posted By Stephen

Firstly let me say that this steak tasted better than it looks in the picture. The picture looks a bit like a really old post card or one of those nasty, faded pictures of food that some cafes and restaurants ill-advisedly put in their window. And it does look rather like a badly cooked steak from a cheap chain restaurant with fake, painted-on griddle marks. Which is isn’t.

Kerri had been craving steak for a couple of days which is unusual for her, she likes steak but doesn’t often end up actually craving it. Friday seemed like a good steak day, so armed with a nice piece of ribeye and a griddle pan, we got to work. We also grilled some mushrooms, which were the opposite of the steak – they looked good but we hadn’t seasoned them enough and they didn’t have much flavour.

We often put mustard in our mash and today we decided to experiment by using horseradish instead of mustard. The experiment worked out nicely and the horseradish went really well with the steak. As a sauce, we used some left-over cooking liquid from when we made steak and kidney pie and added loads of ground black pepper to it to make it into a really rich pepper sauce. This worked out very well too – steak with peppery steak and kidney sauce sounds a bit strange, but it tasted good, which is what matters.

    I often crave steak and I love the idea of serving with horseradish mash – yum! Your comment about the photo really made me chortle – it honestly looks a whole lot better than those awful pictures they put up in cafes. Why do they do that?? Makes me want to run a mile!

    Hehe thanks Antonia. Maybe it’s not as bad as all that, but the colours make it look a bit faded and/or outdated.

    And yes, I tend to avoid places with pictures in the window, it just makes everything look really unappetising!
