Rib-Eye Steaks with Mushroom Sauce & Pea Mash

This post is sponsored by Nuffnang.

Ahhhhh rib eye! The first time my mum cooked rib eye steak I thought I was on an episode of the Flintstones! It’s not a cut I buy due to it’s size and price. But for a special occasion, I’d splash out and buy it.

You could easily substitute the massive rib eye for a nice piece of rump, or porterhouse instead. It’s the mushroom sauce that really makes it. Having mashed peas instead of potato makes for a lighter dish, and you will not be committing any kind of carbocide. It’s relatively easy recipe to make, perfect for those lazy Sundays, when you want something delicious, but with minimum effort.

Rib-Eye Steaks with Mushroom Sauce & Pea Mash
Adapted from Delicious Magazine

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, crushed
6 x 200g rib-eye steaks

Pea Mash
500g frozen baby peas
20g unsalted butter

Mushroom Sauce
30g unsalted butter
500g button mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup (125ml) Campbell’s Real Stock – liquid beef stock
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/2 cup (125ml) reduced-fat thickened cream

1. Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper in a large bowl. Add the steaks and toss gently to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the fridge for at least 3 hours.

2. Preheat a grill plate, chargrill pan or barbecue to medium-high and cook steaks for 3 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or until cooked to your liking. Cover and rest while you make the mash and sauce.

3. To make the mash, cook peas in a pan of boiling water for 5 minutes or until tender. Drain and place in a bowl. Add the butter, season with salt and pepper and mash together. Cover and keep warm.

4. To make the sauce, melt the butter in a small frypan over medium-low heat. Add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the Campbell’s beef stock, parsley and cream, then season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and simmer for 5-6 minutes until the sauce thickens slightly.

5. Spoon mash onto warmed plates, top with steaks and finish with the sauce.

Serves 6.

    This is definitely a dish I crave when I’m famished! I would almost always choose mushroom over a blackpepper sauce. Thanks for sharing a beautiful recipe.

    I’m not a lover of pea mash, but yours is quite convincing I must admit! This looks like a great winter warmer – or maybe great for some of these ultra rainy spring days!

    How amazing do those mushy peas look! Well, everything does 🙂 I love rump steak! Just getting into rib eye now – so much effort to cut! haha. I’m a loser.

    YUM! This is almost identical to what I’m having for dinner tonight! 😛 My token creamy mushroom sauce is so similar, just with the addition of thyme and a tad more cream 😉 haha! I’d love to try out that pea mash, the colour is gorgeous! I think Cam would be rather upset if he didn’t get his generous portion of truffled mash, though.. Maybe I’ll make the pea mash for me next time 😛 Thanks for another delicious recipe!
