Pan-Fried Steak With Horseradish Rutabaga Mash

Rutabaga, also called turnip, is an often overlooked (but tasty) root vegetable. With a texture similar to potatoes, rutabaga is delicious mashed or roasted. It is available year-round and stays fresh thanks to its waxy skin. You can use a sharp knife to peel the skin away, or buy the vegetable already peeled and cubed.

Horseradish Rutabaga Mash: In pot of boiling salted water, cook rutabaga and garlic for 15 minutes; add potatoes. Cook until rutabaga is fork-tender, about 10 minutes; drain. In food processor, pulse together rutabaga, garlic, potatoes, sour cream, horseradish, salt and pepper until smooth. Stir in chives.

Meanwhile, rub steak all over with paprika, salt and pepper. In cast-iron or nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; fry steak, turning once, until medium-rare, 4 to 8 minutes. Transfer to cutting board; let stand, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Slice across the grain.

Serve with mash.
