Steak with Sweet Chilli Beetroot and Potato Mash

Bored of normal mash? Impress with this pink mash, combining potatoes and beetroot to add some colour to your usual steak recipe!


Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes


  • 400g Red Tractor Assured mashing potatoes
  • 4 sweet chilli cooked Red Tractor Assured beetroot 
  • 2 Red Tractor Assured fillet steaks
  • 1tsp Red Tractor Assured rapeseed oil
  • 4 tbsp Red Tractor Assured Crème Fraiche
  • Salt and pepper

Serve with:

  • 100g Red Tractor Assured Tenderstem broccoli, steamed & tossed in Lemon juice and olive oil


  1. Peel the potatoes and cut each into 8. Put them into a large pan of salted water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10 minutes until the potatoes are tender. 
  2. While the potatoes cook, chop the beetroot into quarters and season the steaks. 
  3. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and when it’s very hot, cook the steaks for 3-4 minutes on each side (longer if you want them well done). When the steaks are cooked to your liking, put them on a warm plate and set aside to rest.
  4. Once the potatoes are just tender add the beetroot to the water and simmer for 2 minutes longer. Drain the water away and add the crème fraiche to the pan. Mash everything together well until you have a smooth pink mash. Season to taste.
  5. Slice the steak and serve with a dollop of mash and the steamed tenderstem. Pour any meat juices over the dish.
