Marinated Steak with Mash

If you want a quick, tasty mid week meal this may as well be it.
The marinade for this steak is slightly sweet, slightly asian but all the right qualities for a marinade, to the point that no other sauce is needed on or with your steak.

I have to apologize for the very busy and messy photo. Sorry - not very professional of me I must say ... but I was so hungry that I cut into my steak and then realised that I hadn't taken a picture of it but at least you can see that I am having my vegetable intake, serving it here with the mash, carrots, chargrilled capsicum slices, roasted baby vine-ripened tomatoes and baby spinach leaves - must say I try and sneak baby spinach into a lot of my meals as I love it!!


Marinated Steak with Mash
(recipe source: WW Simply The Best 2005)

Serves: 4
Points per serve: 5.5

1 teaspoon ginger, grated
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons kecap manis
2 teaspoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
4 lean beef steaks (140g each)
4 medium potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
½ cup skim milk
2 teaspoons reduce fat butter
salt to taste

Combine the ginger, garlic, kecap manis, brown sugar and tomato sauce in a bowl. Add the steaks and marinade for 20 – 30 minutes.

Meanwhile steam, boil or microwave the potatoes until very tender. Drain and then mash together with the milk, butter and salt. Keep mash warm while you cook the steaks.

Heat a char-grill pan or frying pan or barbecue until hot. Spray with cooking spray. Remove the steak s from the marinade. Cook for 2 – 3 minutes on each side, brushing with excess marinade or until cooked to your liking.

Serve with the mash and salad or vegetables of your choice.

You know something is good when you forget to snap a photo first.
