AT A GLANCE
Midweek mash is a rustic affair - there's certainly no time for pushing it through a moulis or a sieve. Instead, we embrace a bit of texture and add plenty of butter and cream. If pine mushrooms aren't available, use Swiss browns in their place.
|01||Preheat oven to 200C. Cover potato with cold salted water, bring to the boil and cook until tender when pierced (10-15 minutes). Drain well, mash roughly, then mix in cream and 50gm butter. Season generously to taste.|
|02||Meanwhile, heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan over high heat, add steaks and brown well (1-2 minutes each side). Season to taste, transfer to a baking tray and roast until cooked to your liking (1-2 minutes for medium-rare). Rest for 5 minutes.|
|03||Add remaining butter to pan and when it foams, add mushrooms cap-side down. Add garlic and fry until mushrooms begin to soften (1-2 minutes). Turn mushrooms, spoon over a little of the butter from the pan and add thyme. Fry until mushrooms are just tender (1-2 minutes), then remove from heat, and add lemon rind and juice, and vinegar to the pan. Serve steaks with mash, mushrooms, garlic and pan juices.|
