Sirloin Steak with garlic prawn and herb mash

Serves 4 Prep Time: 10 mins Cooking Time: 20 mins


2 150-200 gram sirloin steaks

For the potatoes
300 gram peeled potatoes
50 gram butter
50 ml whipping cream
1 tsp. grain mustard
4 tbs. mixed fresh herbs, chopped

For the prawns
8 raw Black Tiger Prawns
4 cloves garlic, crushed
4 tbs. parsley, chopped
100g butter


Cut the potatoes into even chunks and boil in salted water until soft and ready to mash.

Drain and then return to a gentle heat to dry them out, then mash with the butter, cream and mustard.

Season to taste with salt and pepper. Keep warm.

Cut the butter into cubes and allow to soften. Place the butter, parsley and garlic in a food processor and blend until smooth.

Warm a non stick pan over a medium heat, season the steaks and carefully lay them into the pan to cook.

Allow the steaks to seal on both sides, then add the prawns to the pan.

As the steaks and prawns cook, turn them over to continue cooking from the other side, until the steaks are cooked to your preference and the prawns are well done.

Reduce the heat under the pan and add the garlic butter, swirling it around the pan as it melts to coat the prawns.

Warm the mash over a low heat and add the mixed herbs.

To serve, place the mash in the center of each plate. Remove the steaks from the pan and carve each one into 5 slices. Lay the slices over the mash. Place the prawns around the edge of each plate and pour the garlic butter over the prawns.

Accompany with a selsction of baby vegetables blanched in boiling slated water until tender, then tossed in a little lemon juice.
