In a large pan place 450g (1lb) potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks. Cover with water, bring to the boil and cook for 15 – 20 minutes until soft.

Meanwhile take 2 lean beef sirloin or rump steaks and sprinkle over 15ml (1tbsp) black peppercorns, crushed. Cook under a preheated grill. (If you want any further information on cooking Peppered Steak so it is just how you like it have a look at our guide “How to cook steak” here >>)

Once the potatoes are cooked, drain and mash together with 90ml (6tbsp) fat free fromage frais, 30ml (2tbsp) horseradish sauce, 2 spring onions, sliced, and season with salt and black pepper.


Serve the peppered steak with the mash and seasonal vegetables – asparagus, broccoli and peas. In addition to the peppercorns – rub 2 cloves crushed garlic over the steak or smear with 5ml (1tsp) mustard or horseradish and then dip in the peppercorns before cooking.
