Saturday Supper – Steak, Dauphinois Potato and Homegrown Asparagus πŸ˜

Poor Hubby has had such a hard week, most of us love a short week, but he is particularly busy at present, so I am making his favourite meal tonight – Steak, Dauphinois Potatoes and Asparagus, ours has finally come through 😊


I ordered a meat pack from Market Porter earlier this month, with 2 delicious steaks, having some Aldi Potatoes, I will make some Dauphinois Potatoes and use the first of our homegrown Asparagus, I also had some Homegrown Wild garlic which I completely forgot about in the fridge 😫

For pud, one of hubby’s favourites, Chocolate Fondants, I have made these a few times before, so I won’t bore you again with the recipe, but here’s the LinkΒ  to ‘one I made earlier’ 🀣


To start, pre heat the oven (200) and heat the griddle ready for the steak.


I use a bit of olive oil to dress the steak, with a pinch of ground black pepper.


I very finely slice 2 potatoes and pop into a pan, add a crushed clove of garlic, salt, pepper and a pot of double cream


heat till simmer in and cook till par boiled – then layer in a buttered oven proof dish – top with grated Parmesan and into the oven for 25-30 minutes till golden and bubbling.

Just before the potatoes are ready, pop the steaks onto the griddle and cook to your taste- we like them rare.



Let these rest for a couple of minutes and cook the Asparagus on the griddle.


Serve up and enjoy πŸ˜‡

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
