Steak and Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

I promised more uses for that buttermilk and I am delivering with a super simple meal of steak and potatoes. I was feeling guilty about using those bagged mashed potatoes so I thought I would make my own. I paired it with a simple pan fried steak.

I don't peel my potatoes, I like to have the skins in them.

Dice them up small so they cook faster, then get them in a nice big pot.

Cover them with water until they are submerged and there is an inch or so of water over them. Get them boiling and let them cook for about 20 minutes.

meanwhile cube up some butter and grab your masher.

when the potatoes are nearly done get your steak and heat up a pan until it is nice and hot.

Season your steak however you like it. I used some seasoned salt and this delicious pepper mix that my sister got me.

Season it on both sides and drop it in the pan.

When your potatoes are done drain them and get them back in the pan for mashing.

That is when you add the delicious and tangy buttermilk.

Mash them until they are at a consistency you like.

Serve with the steak and enjoy this classic steak and potato meal!


  1. Yummy, yummy. Would SO eat this since it was beef? If not, more for you.

  2. I've never had mashed potatoes with the skin. Looks delicious!
