A note about serious food allergies

Pepper. It's one of the top two condiments in shakers on dining tables across America, just waiting to make Aunt Mary's tuna casserole edible. It'll make you sneeze, and might make you pucker a bit. This classic dish celebrates the noir noshable by coating a juicy and tender steak with the seasoning. Classic mashed potatoes enhanced by roasted onion round out the meal. Along with mushrooms and sauce, all combine for perfect, rich bites that'll make your fork sing. Tell Aunt Mary we're sorry; we've got a new favorite pepper dish. Tip: Make potatoes easier to cut by making a large slice that leaves a flat surface. Place the flat surface on the cutting board and get to dicing!

Customize It Instructions

  • If using grass-fed sirloin steaks, follow same instructions as steaks.

  • If using filet mignon, follow same instructions as steaks in Step 1 and Step 4, cooking until browned and steaks reach minimum internal temperature, 5-8 minutes per side.

  • If using NY strip steak, follow same instructions as steaks in Step 1 and Step 4, cooking until browned and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 9-11 minutes per side. Halve NY strip to serve.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Quarter mushrooms.

    Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips.

    Peel and cut potatoes into large chunks.

    Pat steaks dry, and season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt. Season one side with coarse black pepper.

  2. 2

    Roast the Mushrooms and Onion

    Place mushrooms on one half of prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Add onion to empty half and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt.

    Spread mushrooms and onion into single layers on their sides (some overlap with each other is ok). Roast in hot oven until both are browned and softened, 18-20 minutes.

    While mushrooms and onion roast, make mashed potatoes.

  3. 3

    Make the Mashed Potatoes

    Bring a medium pot with potatoes covered by lightly salted water to a boil. Cook until tender, 18-20 minutes.

    Reserve 1/2 cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.

    Add sour cream, 2/3 the butter (reserve remaining for sauce), and 1/4 tsp. salt to pot and mash until smooth. If potatoes are too dry, add reserved potato cooking water 1 Tbsp. at a time until desired consistency is reached. Cover and set aside.

    While potatoes boil, cook steaks.

  4. 4

    Cook the Steaks

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Place steaks in hot pan, peppered-side down. Cook on one side until browned, pepper is aromatic, and steak reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side.

    Remove steaks to a plate and tent with foil.

    Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook steaks to medium-high heat. Add demi-glace and 1/4 cup water to hot pan. Stir, then bring to a boil.

    Once boiling, cook until thickened slightly, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner and swirl in remaining butter until combined.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, serving steak on sauce, and topping mashed potatoes with roasted onions. Bon appétit!
