If you are someone that enjoys a nice steak and mashed potatoes, this recipe is for you. If steak isn’t your jam, you still need to try this recipe. It will turn you into a believer. It did for me! So if I am singing its praises, you know it MUST be good! After seeing all the likes this meal got on Instagram, I knew I had to share it with you.
I not only think that this recipe tastes sensational, but it is also healthier. What makes this recipe healthier is that the eye of round steak is a very lean beef. There is practically no fat on it. It is one of the leanest cuts of steak you can get. Don’t worry it will be moist and cut like butter! No toughness here!
Also, instead of the traditional mashed potatoes, I substituted them for mashed cauliflower. Honestly, you would never know the difference. They are light and fluffy and have the texture and taste of real potatoes. I made some family members try them (they aren’t following any diet like me), and they RAVED about them! If that isn’t a ringing endorsement, I don’t know what is.
Here are a few tips about these recipes that I thought would be important to share. The eye of round steak is not hard to prepare at all. However, it takes a while to make because it simmers on the oven for a substantial amount of time. Personally, this usually is made on a weekend at my house because of time constraints during the week. Also, I add mushrooms to my sauce to give it a little something extra. You can do this as well or follow the recipe as stated. Either way, it is delicious!
When you make the cauliflower mash, timing is everything! About 15 minutes before the rounds are done, I usually prepare the mash. You want the cauliflower mash to be hot and ready to eat when you make it. My last tip is that this dish reheats the next day wonderfully (so don’t be afraid to make extra).
Now that I have you salivating for this dish, here are the links to the original recipes. The Eye of Round Steak and the Garlic Mashed Cauliflower are two separate recipes, but I think they pair well together. Please let me know in the comments when you make this recipe or tag me @pcosliving in a picture of it on Instagram. I would love to find out if it was a winner for you as well!
