One simply can’t have steak without potatoes…
Red smashed potatoes with sage brown butter
- 3 pounds red potatoes (unpeeled)
- 4 tbsp butter (chopped into small pieces)
- salt/pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup (or more) milk
- 4 sage leaves
Cook potatoes in salted boiling water until tender. Set aside and cover. In a skillet over medium heat, melt butter with sage leaves, stirring constantly. When the butter begins to foam, keep whisking. As soon as it turns brown take off heat and pour over hot potatoes. Discard sage leaves. Mash potatoes and add salt and pepper to taste. Pour in milk and mash to incorporate. Add more milk if needed to reach desired consistency. Serve immediately.
