Classic steak and creamy mash with delicious rosemary garlic butter and a simple side salad.
1. Roughly chop potatoes and place in a saucepan (peel if preferred). Cover with water, bring to the boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until tender. Drain and return to pan (see notes), see step 5.

2. Mash 60g butter with a fork (see notes) and combine with finely chopped rosemary (to taste) and 1 crushed garlic clove. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Rub steaks with oil, salt and pepper. Heat a pan over high heat and cook beef steaks for 3-4 minutes each side, or until cooked to your liking. Set aside to rest.

4. Chop tomatoes, trim and halve snow peas. Toss in a serving bowl with leaves and dress with 1 tbsp olive oil and 1/2 tbsp vinegar (optional).

5. Thinly slice spring onions. Add to the potatoes and mash with 1/4-1/3 cup olive oil, butter or milk to desired consistency. Season well with salt and pepper.

6. Serve steaks with a dollop of rosemary butter, mash and salad.

Reserve some cooking water from the potatoes and use instead of olive oil/butter/milk to make a lighter mash.
Grate butter to soften quickly. If you don’t have time to make the rosemary butter, use olive oil and vinegar, turn into a rosemary vinaigrette instead.
No beef option - beef rump steaks are replaced with chicken schnitzels. Increase cooking time as needed to ensure chicken is cooked through.
