browned butter mashed potatoes

  • ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 large russet potatoes (about 1 pound), peeled and chopped
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • 1 Sam’s Club Boneless Prime Ribeye Steak (about 1 pound)
  • 3 ½ 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


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Adjust seasonings as needed. Cover and set aside.
  • Place a large skillet over high heat. Generously season steak with salt and pepper.
  • Melt butter and oil into skillet. Add garlic clove and thyme and cook for about 1 minute.
  • Add steak to skillet and sear on each side for about 3 minutes.
  • 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.
  • To serve: Pile mashed potatoes onto a platter and top with steak. Spoon some of the basting mixture over steak and serve.
