Onglet steak with green garlic butter and potato puree


You'll need

  Steak and potatoes 2 kg mashing potatoes, such as Dutch cream or desiree 100 gm butter, softened 200 ml pouring cream 1.8 kg (about 2) onglet steaks, cut into 6 pieces (see note) 50 ml olive oil To serve: watercress sprigs   Green garlic butter 8 cloves garlic, peeled 1 cup (loosely packed) flat-leaf parsley leaves 250 gm unsalted butter, softened 2 spring onions, finely chopped 2 tbsp finely chopped French tarragon 2 tbsp pastis or other anise-flavoured liqueur

Method

  • 01
  • For green garlic butter, combine garlic with a pinch of salt in a mortar and, using a pestle, crush to a paste. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Spoon butter onto a piece of plastic wrap, roll into a cylinder and refrigerate until required. Butter will keep, refrigerated, in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
  • 02
  • Place potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with cold salted water and bring to the boil over high heat. Cook for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and peel, press through a potato ricer or mash, then return to saucepan. Add butter and cream and stir over low heat until smooth. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • 03
  • Season steak and set aside. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add steak and cook for 3-4 minutes each side for medium rare or until cooked until your liking. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and rest for 5 minutes.
  • 04
  • To serve, divide potato purée among plates, top with steak and slices of butter and serve with watercress sprigs to the side.

Note Onglet is a cut of beef and is available from Vic's Premium Quality Meat but may need to be pre-ordered. Substitute with your favourite cut.
