  • ½ cup evaporated milk

Beef Gravy ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ cups water
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste


  • Prepare the steak. Season both sides with salt and ground black pepper. Set aside.
  • Make the mashed potato by boiling it in 1 quart of water for 15 minutes. Note: add 1 teaspoon salt in boiling water before putting the potato in. Drain the water using a colander.

Season with salt and ground black pepper. Set aside.

Add Half the amount of the water as indicated in the ingredient list. Continue stirring until all ingredients are well blended. Season with salt and ground black pepper.

  • Start cooking the steak by heating a cast iron pan. Add cooking oil and butter. Once the butter melts, put the steak into the pan. Sear it for 2 minutes. Add the rosemary and thyme directly to the oil so that it will be infused with the aroma and flavor of the herbs. Continue cooking for 2 minutes. Remove the herbs and discard. Turn the steak over and continue cooking in high heat for 4 minutes.
  • Take the steak off the pan and place it on a clean plate. Let it rest for at least 5 minutes.
  • Arrange mashed potato on the side and pour the gravy on it. Serve with steamed vegetables.
