    Not very creative, but yummy!

    I figured I'd post some kind of tutorial on a light, somewhat healthy lunch Medium/Medium rare steak, and garlic mashed potatoes.

    What you need-Add, subtract according to taste and how much you want to make.
    3-6 Large potatoes
    Garlic powder
    Half and Half, or Milk
    Salt and Pepper
    Parsley
    Butter
    1+ steaks (choose to your liking on cut, thickness, preference, etc...)

    Cut the potatoes, skin on, into thick slices. Add them in a large pot with water, and what spices you wish, for flavoring. Bring to a roaring boil, with a lid on until tender to a fork.


    After the potatoes are done cooking, mash in a bowl with a beater or similar utensil. Whichever you prefer. Add butter, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper, and mix.


    When your done, they should look something like this...


    In a smaller sauce pan, bring your half and half, or milk to a simmer, with whatever seasonings you wish to add. Don't allow it to churn.


    Afterwards, mix in with the butter/potato mix.


    _______________

    For the steaks-
    Select a fresh, prime cut of whichever you choose. Make sure your sources are fresh, and the meat is good quality. I chose Kansas city cuts. These cuts average around 5oz each.


    Cook to your liking, over open flame. Closing the lid will dry the steak and give it a toughness. Open flame will help the cut retain tenderness, and juiciness. For these, 15-20 minutes per side for medium-rare.




    Don't overdo it, like I did on one side, running back and forth between things It'll dry the steak.

    Afterwards, slice the steak, and serve with the potatoes. They make a good, healthy lunch. Much better than most fast foods, and just as cheap. This cost me somewhere around $5 a plate..



    Enjoy!
