The fancy Swedish dish!

This recipe is based on the last time I did this, which was for 3 people. Scale accordingly!



  • 500g Sirloin steak
  • High smoke-point oil
  • salt & pepper


  • 1kg potato
  • 3 egg yolks
  • butter
  • cream
  • salt & pepper


  • 2-3 tomatoes
  • a packet of bacon
  • 12 strands of asparagus
  • bearnaise sauce


  • Boil the potatoes until falling apart.
  • Mash the potatoes with egg yolks. Add butter, cream, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Let the mash cool and turn the oven on to 250 degrees celsius.
  • Roll bunches of four asparagus with two strips of bacon.
  • Cook the bacon around the asparagus in a pan.
  • Cut the tomatoes in halves in a fancy jagged style. Put 1-2 halves on each plank.
  • Spritz the now cooled mash on the plank. Whatever style suits you.
  • Take the steaks and put plenty of sea salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Take a cast iron pan and put it on the stove. Get a good amount of oil on the pan and max heat until the oil is smoking.
  • Fry the steaks for 2 minutes on both sides for medium. Try for 1-2 minutes for more red on the inside.
  • Put the steaks with the rolled up asparagus on the planks and put in the oven until mash is slightly browned.
  • Serve with bearnaise!
