A modern variation of a traditional Scottish recipe.
- 2 lbs aberdeen angus boneless sirloin steaks
- 1 large yellow onion, sliced
- 1⁄2 cup beef broth or 1⁄2 cup beef stock
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1⁄4 cup blue cheese
- 1 teaspoon green peppercorn
- 1⁄4 cup flour
- 6 medium new potatoes
- 1⁄2 cup scottish ale (NOT BEER!)
- parsley (to garnish)
- Boil potatoes until tender (keep skins on), and then drain.
- Mash potatoes with blue cheese and set aside and keep warm.
- Cut sirloin steak into four equal parts and then dust with flour.
- Heat oil in a skillet and then add steak, onions and garlic.
- Cook approximately two minutes per side.
- Remove steak and add peppercorns, Worcestershire sauce, beef broth and ale.
- Stir together, bring to a slow boil, and reduce liquid to two-thirds of the original amount.
- Serve steak over potatoes and spoon the brown sauce to cover completely.
- Garnish with parsley.
I did not care for this recipe at all. It didn't have any flavor at all! I also suggest that if you are going to make this recipe, to add a little milk when mashing the potatoes, otherwise they will be way too dry! It was a waste of good steak.
