Drain and peel, then return to pan and mash with a potato masher or pass through a potato ricer. Add butter and cream, stir to combine and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Heat half the oil in a large heavy-based frying pan over medium heat. Cook 2 steaks at a time for 2 minutes or until browned, then turn, add half the garlic and cook for 1 minute or until garlic is softened. Add half the brandy (be careful as it may flame) and cook for 2 minutes or until reduced by half. Add half the Worcestershire sauce, half the butter and half the cream, then stir through half the chopped parsley. Repeat with remaining ingredient halves.

  • Meanwhile, place beans and carrots in a steamer or boil in salted water for 5 minutes until tender. Drain, toss with butter and season to taste.
