Gino's Tip

TThis is a classic brown pan sauce and can be flavored with pretty much anything - for decadence and indulgence you could add some brandy or sherry for special occasions.

Step 1 - Mashed Potatoes

Place your potatoes in a medium saucepan of salted water and proceed to boil for 12-15 minutes until soft. Drain through a colander. Mash with a potato masher until smooth, and then fold in your butter. Season to taste with salt and pepper and place in the microwave to keep warm.

Step 2 - Pan-Fried Greens and Brown Sauce Steak

Place two large frying pans or a frying pan and a casserole pan on the stove. If you're using a large casserole pan its best to use it for your greens. Season your sirloin steaks with salt and pepper and once your large frying pan is hot but not smoking sear your steaks for 2-3 minutes on each side or cooked to desired doneness. In your second pan add a drizzling of olive oil and once your pan is hot, pan-fry your green beans for 5-8 minutes until just about tender - season with salt and pepper to taste and reserve in the microwave until you're ready to serve. Transfer your steaks to your chopping board and proceed to caramelize your onions and crushed garlic in the pan with a dash of water and covered with a lid. Once your onions have softened, proceed to mix in about a tablespoon of flour and stir and cook through for a minute. Lastly mix in your chopped origanum, beef stock, and your water. Bring your sauce to the boil until thickened - add dashes of water if too thick, remove your pan from the heat and add your meat back into your sauce.

To serve

Divide your butter mash amongst your servings and top with your pan-fried greens and brown sauce steak. Enjoy!
