“Broiling is quicker than other cooking methods and will allow the beef in this recipe to crust nicely on the outside and retain a juicy center. Mashing cauliflower with potatoes also helps to reduce carbohydrate content compared to eating just mashed potatoes.”


    • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce with roasted garlic
    • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1½ teaspoons chili powder
    • ½ teaspoon onion powder
    • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 (1 pound) boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 1 inch thick
    • 2 cups cubed, peeled russet potatoes
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 2 cups cauliflower florets
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 2 to 4 tablespoons fat-free milk
    • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh chives
    • Snipped fresh chives (optional)


  • 1 Preheat broiler. In a small saucepan combine tomato sauce, vinegar, honey, chili powder, onion powder and ⅛ teaspoon pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Set aside.
  • 2 Place steak on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat for 15 to 17 minutes or until desired doneness (145°F for medium rare; 160°F for medium), turning once halfway through broiling time and brushing with tomato sauce mixture on both sides just before the last 3 minutes of broiling time.
  • 3 Meanwhile, in a large saucepan combine potatoes and garlic. Add enough water to cover potatoes. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Add cauliflower; return to boiling. Reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 10 minutes more or until vegetables are very tender. Drain in a colander set in sink. Shake to drain well.
  • 4 In a large bowl combine potato-cauliflower mixture, oil, salt and ⅛ teaspoon pepper. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Gradually beat in just enough milk to make potato-cauliflower mixture light and fluffy. Stir in the 2 tablespoons chives.
  • 5 Bring any remaining tomato sauce mixture to boiling; serve with steak and potato-cauliflower mixture. If desired, sprinkle with additional chives.
