Steak meat is generally sliced across muscle fibers. It is often grilled in an attempt to replicate the flavor of steak cooked over the glowing coals of an open fire. I have grilled my marinated steak in a small griller machine from Russel Hobbs. It was really juicy and cooked to perfection. I accompanied the steak with easy mashed peas and flavorful honey pepper baby potatoes

Add salt, cooking cream and chopped coriander/cilantro. Once ready make a mushy paste using a blender or hand grinder or back of the spatula until as per your desired consistency.

Add 2tbsp soy sauce, 1tbsp vinegar, 2tbsp back pepper,1tbsp honey,1tbsp chili flakes and a pinch of salt. Mix well. Add 2 cups water and cook the potatoes until soft. To the end add cornstarch (1 teaspoon corn flour mixed with 2tbsp water). Make sure you have a nice thick sauce.

Serve the steak, peas, and potatoes together with lots of green salad on the side.
