Applebee's Copycat Recipe

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

2 pounds red potatoes
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup cream
3 tablespoons butter
Salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup garlic cloves
Sauteed Onions and Mushrooms
1/2 pound yellow onions, peeled, cored, 1/4 inch julienne strips
1/2 pound sliced mushrooms
2 tablespoons butter
Granulated garlic, to taste
Salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
Sirloin Steak Skillet
1 (2 3/4 pound) sirloin steak - 8 smaller cuts (approximately 5 1/2 ounces each)
Sauteed mushrooms/onion, see recipe
Garlic mashed potatoes, see recipe
8 slices mozzarella cheese

Garlic Mashed Potatoes:

Place a single layer of garlic cloves on a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil and wrap tightly.

Roast in 400 degree F preheated oven for approximately 45 minutes or until soft. Unwrap and let cool until touchable. Peel cloves and mash with potatoes when they are ready. Wash and rinse potatoes under cold water. It is not necessary to peel potatoes, unless you desire.

In large saucepan (or pot), bring red potatoes to a slow boil for approximately 20 minutes. The exact time depends on the size of the potatoes used. For faster cooking, cut into smaller pieces.

Internal temperature should be 205 degrees F. Remove from heat and drain in colander. In pan or bowl, combine potatoes, peeled and roasted garlic cloves, and all other ingredients and mash with a potato masher.

Return mashed potatoes to low heat, if necessary, to bring them to
a serving temperature of 165 degrees F.

Sauteed Onions, Mushrooms:

Melt butter in skillet over medium heat and add onions and seasonings.

Saute and stir until lightly caramelized. Add sliced mushrooms and stir, as needed to avoid burning, until hot.

Sirloin Steak Skillet:

Grill steaks to desired degree of doneness. Melt two slices of mozzarella cheese over two shingled steaks for each plate. Top with onions and mushrooms, and serve with mashed potatoes on the side.
