Steak With Creamy Shallots Over Mashed Potatoes or Steak Sandwiches

22 09 2012

The tender steak and creamy shallots are a perfect fit. And I love the versatility of this meal – the steak and shallots can be served on a sandwich or over mashed potatoes like I show here.

Steak With Creamy Shallots Over Mashed Potatoes

The following serves 4 (compliments of Everyday Food):

  • 2 boneless New York strip steaks (3/4 inch thick and 1 and 1/2 pounds total), excess fat trimmed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 large shallots, thinly sliced (2 cups)
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • Creamy mashed potatoes or 4 sandwich rolls, split and toasted
  • 2 cups baby arugula

Pat steaks dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper.

In a large skillet, heat oil over high. Cook steaks until medium-rare, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board and tent loosely with foil.

Reduce heat to medium, add shallots and cook until softened, about 8 minutes.

Add cream and 2 Tbsp water and cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Stir in mustard and season with salt and pepper. Thinly slice steak against the grain.

Toss steak with shallots and sauce and serve over creamy mashed potatoes with a side arugula salad. Or make steak sandwiches with rolls, shallots, steak and arugula.
