2 Cook & mash the potatoes:

Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water and cook 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add half the butter and a drizzle of olive oil. Using a fork, mash to your desired consistency; season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover to keep warm.

Cook the apple & onion:
3 Cook the apple & onion:

While the potatoes cook, in a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced apple and onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until slightly softened.

Add the cabbage:
4 Add the cabbage:

Add the sliced cabbage to the pan; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir in the vinegar, sugar, and ¼ cup of water. Loosely cover the pan with aluminum foil (or a lid) and cook 12 to 14 minutes, or until softened; season with salt and pepper to taste.

While the steaks rest, to the pan of reserved fond, add the demi-glace, remaining butter, and ¼ cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper.
