Flat-iron steak with avocado mash
( SERVES 2 )
Silver Fern Farms Flat-Iron Steaks are skillfully removed from the shoulder and expertly trimmed to guarantee tenderness. As a cut that is full of flavour, they require little more than a quick pan fry and mashed potatoes made creamy with avocado rather than butter or oil.
- Place the potatoes in a saucepan of cold, salted water, bring to the boil and cook until tender.
- Meanwhile cook the steak: Heat a frying pan. Sprinkle Silver Fern Farms Beef Flat-Iron Steaks with salt and paprika, drizzle with oil and fry for 3 minutes each side. Remove and rest, covered for 5 minutes.
- Drain the potatoes and mash well, then mash in the avocado. Season with salt and pepper.
- Slice the steak to serve on top of the mash with a tomato and basil salad.
