Seared Ribeye over Browned Butter Mashed Potatoes

Serves 1 to 2

browned butter mashed potatoes:
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
2 large russet potatoes (about 1 pound), peeled and chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste

1 Sam’s Club Boneless Prime Ribeye Steak (about 1 pound)
3 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, lightly smashed
2 to 3 sprigs of thyme
salt and pepper to taste

1. Place chopped potatoes into a pot and fill with water. Place over high heat and boil until potato is fork tender. Drain into a colander, then place potatoes back into pot.
2. Place butter in a small saucepan and melt over medium heat. Continue to cook until butter bits at the bottom of the pan have browned and omit a nutty aroma. Remove from heat and pour over potatoes, scraping out as much of the browned bits as possible.
3. Season potatoes with a generous amount of salt and pepper and mash with a potato masher. While potatoes are still lumpy add cream and continue to mash until smooth.
4. Adjust seasonings as needed. Cover and set aside.
5. Place a large skillet over high heat. Generously season steak with salt and pepper.
6. Melt butter and oil into skillet. Add garlic clove and thyme and cook for about 1 minute.
7. Add steak to skillet and sear on each side for about 3 minutes.
8. Lower heat to medium-high and slightly tilt skillet so butter and oil pile into bottom. For the next 2 to 3 minutes, spoon hot, melted butter and oil mixture over steak, fully basting entire steak. Remove from oven and transfer to a cutting board.
9. To serve: Pile mashed potatoes onto a platter and top with steak. Spoon some of the basting mixture over steak and serve.

    I have a question: In Step #8, you write, “Remove from oven . . .” When did it go into the oven. Seems a step has been omitted

    This looks really tasty and worth preparing! One clarification question: in step 8 you write “Remove from oven…”. Did you mean “skillet” or did I miss something? Thank you.

    This looks fantastic! It’s all on top of the stove, and can be done fairly quickly. I am curious about the temperature of the meat when finished. How long for medium rare?
