Garlic Steak with Creamy Mash and Pumpkin

What can I say? When I saw this recipe I knew I would have to cook it and soon. There is nothing I like better than marinated steak with mash. I have already shared Marinated Steak with Mash with you, which is an asian style marinated steak so I had to share this recipe also.

Combining balsamic and garlic in a marinade always smell divine. This was actually quite a quick meal bursting full of flavour, both in the steak and the creamy mash.

Garlic Steak with Creamy Mash
(recipe adapted from WW Cooking for Every One)

Serves: 4
Points per serve: 6

340 grams Jap pumpkin
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup Worchestershire sauce
2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 x 150 gram steaks, visible fat removed
4 large potatoes, peeled and diced
3/4 cup skim milk
2 tablespoons wholegrain mustard

Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Place pumpkin on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and garlic in a shallow non-metallic dish. Add steak and turne to coat. Stand for 10 minutes.

Cook the potatoes in a small pan of boiling water for 10 - 12 minutes or until tender. Drain and return to the pan. Add the milk and mustard and mash until smooth, seasoning to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Preheat an oil sprayed chargrill pan or frying pan over high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade and cook for 3 minutes each side (for medium) or to your liking. Remove from pan, cover with foil and stand for 5 minutes.

Spoon mash onto serving plates, top with steak and drizzle with juices (if desired). Serve with the roasted pumpkin and other steamed vegetables of your choice.
