Ingredients

Sauteed Steak with a Green Peppercorn Sauce:

3 strip steaks, bone-in (or de-bone)

Salt and pepper

Vegetable oil, for sauteing

1 shallot, minced

1 ounce red wine

4 ounces chicken stock

2 teaspoons green peppercorns, in brine

1 ounce heavy cream

1/2 ounce butter

Sauteed Asparagus, recipe follows

Red-skinned mashed potatoes, recipe follows

Buttered Sauteed Asparagus:

15 stalks asparagus

1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms

1 1/2 tablespoons butter

Salt and pepper

Red-skinned Mashed Potatoes:

6 to 8 red-skinned potatoes

Several chives, finely chopped

1/2 stick butter

1/2 cup milk

Salt and pepper

1/2 cup chopped smoked salmon

1 bunch scallions, minced

Directions

  1. Sauteed Steak with a Green Peppercorn Sauce:
  2. Season the strip steaks with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a medium saucepan and saute the seasoned steaks until they are cooked to medium-well done, with a small strip of pink on the inside. Remove the strip steaks and set aside. Wipe away the excess oil from the pan.
  3. Over medium heat, sweat the minced shallots in the same saute pan until they become translucent. Add the red wine and reduce by 1/2. Add stock to the pan and reduce the mixture again by 1/2. Slowly add the green peppercorns and season lightly with salt and pepper. Continuously stir the sauce while adding in the heavy cream. Finish by adding butter to the sauce and reduce the temperature to low. Do not strain.
  4. Serve with Sauteed Asparagus and Red-skinned Mashed Potatoes.

Buttered Sauteed Asparagus:

  1. In a large pot, bring just enough water to cover the asparagus stalks, to a boil. Add the asparagus to the pot and cook for approximately 1 minute, just long enough to blanch the vegetables. Drain and set aside. In a saute pan, cook the sliced mushrooms in butter and season them with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the asparagus to the pan and saute until tender.

Red-skinned Mashed Potatoes:

  1. In a large pot, bring just enough water to cover the potatoes to a rapid boil. Lightly add salt to the water. Add the potatoes, with the skin still intact, to the water and cook them until they are fork-tender. Drain the water from the pot, leaving only the potatoes. Add butter, milk, and salt and pepper to the boiled potatoes and mash all of the ingredients together. Add the smoked salmon and the scallions to the potatoes and stir them throughout the mixture. Finish the potatoes with chives.
