Steak and Mashed Potatoes

My fiance likes to spoil me. He does that quite often, and I’ve learned that there is nothing I can do to stop him. When we were at the farmers market last weekend, he got ribeye steaks from our favorite local farm. Ribeye is my favorite cut of steak, so I was so excited when he pulled them out of the bag! Here is our full dinner recipe for a classy steak dinner.

5) Drain potatoes, begin mashing, pour in milk mixture, and mash until desired texture. I like pretty smooth with just a hint of lumps.
6) Serve as is or with gravy, but these potatoes are so creamy even with skim milk that they don’t need anything on top.

1) Open can of beans and pour, liquid and all, into a pan. Heat on low until the rest of the food is ready.

 

This is what I call a very well balanced dinner! And the steak was mouthwatering and tender beyond belief. You could cut it with a butter knife.
