From the Test Kitchen

As the cooler months arrive, sometimes all we want is classic comfort food—like a hearty steak-and-potato dinner. Here, we’re boiling our potato with whole garlic cloves before mashing it, imbuing the irresistible side with aromatic notes. (Tangy crème fraîche and a drizzle of olive oil lend the mashed potato delicious creaminess.) To complete this satisfying meal, we’re adding crispy sautéed broccoli, dressed with a bit of lemon to balance the rich steak.

Add the potato and garlic to the pot of boiling water and cook 14 to 16 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

Add ¼ cup of water and cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond from the bottom of the pan, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the water has cooked off and the broccoli has softened.
