Steak in a Stunning Spicy Marinade
This is one of my all time favorite meals.
Ingredients you will need to make this dish (Serves 4):
Firstly, peel and half your potatoes and put them on the boil in salted water. While these are softening you can prepare your marinade.
(Please note that the below recipe instructions for the marinade does not need to be done in any particular order):
Pour 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar into a big bowl (big enough to put your steak in later on).
Pour 1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce into the mix.
Dice up your red onion and scatter that into the bowl.
Stir in the cup of brown sugar along with the diced garlic.
Chuck in the sliced mushrooms and give it all a good stir.
Dollop in two hearty spoonfuls of ketchup.
Grind in salt and pepper to your liking and then add the tobasco. Be as brave as you like this the tobasco - personally, I poured in over half of the bottle!! But even I will admit that it was a little bit much!! So experiment and taste - you can always add more in later.
Don't worry if it doesn't look very liquidy - it just needs to be enough for the steak to lie in (for as long as possible).
Turn the steak regularly to soak up the flavors on all sides.
While the steak is marinading in the fridge, ruggedly chop some spring onions.
Once the potatoes are boiled, rinse the water from the pot and mash the potatoes with a lug of milk. Toss in your chopped up spring onions into the mash (trust me.. it is delicious!).
Take the marinade from your steak and plop it into a pot to cook. You need to make sure the mushrooms are ready before you cook your steak.
Quickly sear your meat on a very hot pan - personally, I like steak blue, but this is completely up to you - but anywhere over medium is considered sacrilege!!!
Dish up the mash, place your steak beside it and layer in a delicious spicy tabasco sauce!
Squeeze some balsamic reduction over the dish and top with a handful of rocket.
