Pepper steak with leek mashed potatoes variations: Veal loin chops can be cooked in the same way. Use 4 chops, 2 cm thick and about 250 g each. (This weight includes the bone; it should give about 150 g meat.) Brush the chops with oil and season with pepper to taste, omitting the peppercorns. Cook as for the steaks, allowing 3 minutes on each side for medium-rare; 3 1⁄2 minutes on each side for medium; or 4 1⁄2 minutes on each side for well done.

Adding leeks to mashed potatoes not only boosts their flavour but also adds thiamine, vitamin B6 and folate. If you include the green part of the leeks this will also provide beta carotene. Eaten regularly, leeks are believed to help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.
