Steaks and Mash

Welcome to the new home of Halie's Kitchen. For my entry this week, I decided to share with you a recipe for my home made mashed potato and steak.

I decided to use lean pork for the steak instead of the usual beef.

What you'll need:

1K of lean pork
1 medium lemon juiced
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon of cayenne powder
1/2 cup of soy sauce
1 head of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons of olive oil

For the mashed potato

1K of potatoes
1/2 cup of water
1 cup of skim milk
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon of non/low fat butter

What to do:

Marinade the pork in soy sauce, lemon juice, cayenne powder, salt and pepper two hours before cooking it. Put inside the fridge.
After two hours, boil the pork in the marinade until tender.
Drain the marinade and set aside to make the gravy (if you want to make some)
Toast the garlic in olive oil until brown
Fry the steak in the olive oil until cooked.

For the mashed potato

Peel skin from potato and wash it thoroughly.
Put the potatoes in a sauce pan, with water, skim milk, salt, pepper and butter.
Boil the potatoes, making sure that the flame is on low and that you don't cover the pan to avoid the milk from curdling.
When the potatoes are cooked and soft enough to mash, get a fork and mash the potato in the mixture, until it gets thick.

Serve the steak with your homemade mashed potato, top the steak with toasted garlic and enjoy.
