Macerated Rib eye steak with oniony potato mix purée

Good afternoon meat lovers! Today I´m making a very special dish. I used to make this a lot back in Argentina. My father is this rib eye recipe, number one fan so I hope he´s proudly reading this post ; )

I personally like the macerate the meat before throwing it to the grill because it´s way more tasty so please take my advice:

Remember that because I´m cooking lunch I´m the only one to eat at home so this recipe it´s made just for myself therefore you´ll have to duplicate, triplicate and so on if you want to make it for more than one.

For the marinade:

  •  2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 Rosemary sticks
  • 6 Thyme sticks
  • 1 Fresh chopped garlic
  • 1/3 tsp wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil

Mix all the ingredients in a bow, bathe the rib eye in it and cover with film paper. Let it rest in the fridge for 24 hrs. Before cooking it add the salt scales and pepper, oil the grill, set the fire hot and burn it till it´s done according to your preference. I like it tender and rare.

For the mashed potatoes:

  • 2 small sweet potatoes
  • 2 small red thumb potatoes
  • 2 small yukon gold potatoes
  • 1 medium size onion
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 100 ml

Fry the onions in a pan with olive oil till they look golden brown, add salt to taste and set aside.

Boil the potatoes together with enough water until they are tender. You can boil them with or without skin, just make sure that you peel them once they are cooked.

Get rid of the water and smash the potatoes in the same casserole. Turn the stove on with low fire, add the milk, the butter and stir to combine. Add the onions, salt to taste and you are all set to go!

Easy peasy,

Hope you´ll enjoy it!
