In  case you wonder, it translates to:
“Sautéed Beef Tenderloin Tips In Paprika Cream With Garlicky Potato Puree”

The other day I saw a food show on TV with Michelle Bernstein (I actually like this show, it reviews South Floridian Restaurants)
During the show, one of the “Foodies” commented that the restaurant in question actually serves “REAL” Mashed Potatoes”, meaning mashed potatoes made from scratch, using “REAL” potatoes instead of the powdered stuff.
This is how far the quality of the majority of average restaurants has sunk to. Mind you, they were not talking about fast food, but a restaurant with an average dinner expense of $60.00 per person before drinks and tip. Very sad indeed !
So today I decided to prepare one of the best, easiest, cheapest and one of the most satisfying side dishes there is : “REAL Potato Puree”, accompanied by an equally great protein dish. While the beef tender-tips I used today are relatively expensive, they can readily substituted with a more economic protein, such as a cheaper beef cut or an altogether different protein such as chicken or pork.
I do make mashed potatoes quite often, exactly for the reasons I mentioned earlier (economic, yummy, easy), usually in a great variety. They can be mashed, pureed or whipped, they can contain additional ingredients such as cheese, sour cream, butter-milk, heavy cream or whole-milk, protein such as bacon, crab meat, or corned beef, vegetables such as caramelized onions, green peas, sautéed leeks or caramelized carrots, herbs such as chives, parsley, oregano, marjoram or cilantro, seasoning such as sriracha, garlic, black pepper, horseradish, nutmeg, butter, olive oil, etc, etc, etc ……….
Why would anybody use the powdered stuff, which tastes disgusting at best and, besides a few extra minutes to cook the potatoes, is neither easier nor much faster than the “REAL” stuff ???

  1. Who, if they have any respect for food, and any tastebuds, would eat, let alone pay to eat, reconstituted potatoes? They should be ashamed of themselves. In clearing up after a natural disaster they might have a place in feeding large numbers (given clean water, of course) but any restaurateur seeing and charging for such stuff should have his toque taken away, and the fact of such service should be publicised by critics.
