Who says you can’t cook for one?

Since someone had to work late, I was on my own for dinner last night. Sure, I could have just picked up a slice of pizza (that’s what he would have done). But I thought, “No. What an excellent opportunity to treat myself… to a steak.” So that’s what I did. And since I’m not made of money, I took myself down to the store and picked up a piece of tenderloin and a potato (I had cheese, milk, butter and veggies). And this is what I did…

Heat butter (and/or oil) in a pan on Medium heat. Add steak (and season however you like).

Boil potatoes for 20 min (until they fall off a fork when you stab them).

Add milk and butter (and cheese/garlic/whatever) and mash until as smooth and creamy as you like them.

For meat about 1 inch thick, cook 4-6 minutes on each side (depending on how done you like it).

Served here with a hearty salad and a pumpkin beer! But that's up to you 🙂

Was it tasty? You tell me…

It’s was super yummy sauce, made yummier by the fact that in total (including the beer) I spent less than $10. I say again, POP POP.
