IngredientsRecipe for 4
Pepper and mushroom sauce
Roasted potatoes and green beans
- Salt and pepper
- Olive oil
Preparation time: 45 min
Preheat your Oven at 400 °F
Cut the head of garlic in 2 across its width.
Peel and mince the rest of the garlic, wash and pluck the parsley and then finely mince it. Combine the minced garlic and parsley.
Clean the potatoes and cut them in 2 lengthwise.
Clean and remove the stem from the green beans.
Slice the mushrooms.
Season the beef with salt.
In a hot skillet with oil, sear the meat on both sides, making sure to have a nice coloration. Generally it should unstick when ready to be turned. Transfer to a baking sheet.
When ready to serve, transfer the baking sheet with the beef to the oven for 4-6 minutes. Once you remove from the oven, let rest for 2-3 minutes.
- Pepper and mushroom sauce
In a hot sauce pot with oil, cook the mushrooms and season with salt. Once they have a nice coloration transfer them to a bowl lined with paper towel to absorb the excess liquid.
Combine the starch with a bit of veal stock. In a sauce pot, bring all the ingredients to a boil while stirring. Add the starch, mix slowly until you reach the desired consistency. Season with salt to taste.
Add the mushrooms and set aside until ready to serve.
- Roasted potatoes and green beans
In a hot skillet with oil, place the potatoes flesh side down. Once you have a nice coloration, add the halved head of garlic and the thyme. Season with salt and pepper and stir delicately. Cover and transfer to the oven. Cook for roughly 25 minutes. Set aside.
In a large pot of salted boiling water, blanch the beans for 4-6 minutes. Make sure they keep a light crunch. Pass through a strainer. Transfer to ice cold water to preserve the bright green color.
In a hot skillet with butter, sautée the beans and add the garlic and parsley. Season to taste.
In a flat plate, place the green beans off center. Place the potatoes just beside them and place the beef on top. Generously garnish with the sauce.
