  • 150gms 2*Steak piece of your choice
  • 300gms Baby Potatoes
  • 300gms Green Peas (frozen or fresh)

  1. Steak: Marinate the steak with salt, black pepper, dry herbs of your choice, dash of lemon juice and oil and keep for about 20 minutes. You can grill the steak as you normally do. I grilled mine with the griller for 5 minutes on each side.
  2. Mashed Peas: In a sauce pan heat 2tbsp butter, add the thawed peas (if frozen) or fresh peas directly in to the butter mix well and add about 1cup water to soften and cook the peas. Add salt, cooking cream and chopped coriander/cilantro. Once ready make a mushy paste using a blender or hand grinder or back of the spatula until as per your desired consistency.
  3. Honey Pepper Potatoes: In a sauce pan add 2tbsp oil, minced garlic, chopped spring onions, cook until soft and fragrant. Add baby potatoes with the skin. Add 2tbsp soy sauce, 1tbsp vinegar, 2tbsp back pepper,1tbsp honey,1tbsp chili flakes and a pinch of salt. Mix well. Add 2 cups water and cook the potatoes until soft. To the end add cornstarch (1 teaspoon corn flour mixed with 2tbsp water). Make sure you have a nice thick sauce.
  4. Garnish with white sesame seeds, optional.

  • Looks good! I won't pretend I love mushy peas - after I discovered the British ruin their fish and chips with a wad of them - but the presentation is epic.

    • Yeah I prefer mash too. I find putting wholegrain mustard in my mash works well with steak,pork and lamb
